Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)

1994

The worst thing that’s ever happened to Craig is also the best: Amy. Amy and Craig never should’ve gotten together. Craig is an awkward, Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school.

Yet somehow they did. Until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over.

Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig’s exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon.

Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy’s quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig’s girlfriend?and sometimes doesn’t.

Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys.Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis’s debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and utterly universal experience of first love.

Review:

How can I properly review this book? Not only is it set in one of the best decades to have grown up in, it was full of deeply flawed characters that made me want to hug them.

The overall story was far more complex than I was prepared for. Craig was a bit of a social outcast and constantly struggled to find his own identity in the shadow of his twin sister. Amy had a learning disability that she was determined to prove would not hold her back in any way. The journey these two went on to find a way to prove their past did not determine their future was incredibly. I fell hard and deep for Craig & Amy. I really do not want to give too much away other than what I said above, which I know was not much. I did that on purpose. I want you to give this one a chance and add to your TBR if you have not already.

One last hook – I believe if you love Rainbow Rowell and John Green books, you’ll really like this.
