One of the absolute best/cutest books I've ever read. I flew through this book in about four hours because I was hooked right from the first page. It was SO beautiful and I feel like I didn't get the full experience because I read it so fast. Looking forward to re-reading it when the sequel comes out!

Delightful, current coming of age story, even though it’s set in 1985. Ari and Dante become friends and help one another understand themselves.
