I'll start out by saying this is a 4.5 star book and would have been 5 stars if it hadn't taken me 30% of the book before I really started enjoying it. I even had a moment (a brief one!) where I was going to put it aside for another time.
I'm SO glad I kept reading! Although I really despised Lola and had a hard time relating to her in the beginning, I overcame that towards the middle of the book. And I ADORED Cricket (although I never could bring myself to love the name). He was a perfect character and the sole reason for me continuing the book, just to find out how things ended up for him.
Nothing will top Anna for me, but this was still an excellent read and brought out all of those mushy lovey-dovey emotions. I will happily read the next book by Stephanie Perkins!
