I thought the infusion of the illustrations and comics was lovely, detailed yet casual. They added hints of indie joy that filled my heart at the creativity and the passion. What was problematic was the switching of perspectives. I really wish the author would have just stuck to one. Another issue was the character's seemed one-D and I wanted to know more about them other than Evan was a straight A student with dreams of being an artist with a perfect home and Lucy was the opposite Manic Pixie Dream Girl with punked out clothing. It would have been more realistic to me if there was more depth. However, the plot was very cute and reminded me of (500) Days of summer or The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. If you liked those movies you may be interested in this book. Be sure to read it close to the holidays! The book is seems best with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate at Starbucks or by a Christmas tree. This books is a perfect Christmas gift for a teenage girl.
