I really enjoyed this novel, mostly because it was a very cute love story in the beginning. But, like how life goes, the good started turning for the worst for Allyson(Lulu). I was kind of iffy about the whole 'girl meets guy and falls in love with him in a day' thing. It turned out to be interesting enough though. I think Allyson was a great character, just because she was strong enough to leave and try to live her life without Willem. But, I think Gayle's point of this whole novel really showed through, and that was, you never forget your first real love, no matter how hard you may try. In my honest opinion, I think this book would make a good movie, either in the theater or on Lifetime. Highly recommend this, especially if you enjoyed Gayle's other novel, If I Stay.
