I liked this book. It is a Christian love story between the two who are still in love teenagers 14 years later. There are no deep plots here it is a simple love story to read just for the pleasure of reading. I would recommend it to any female above the age of about 10 or 12. There is only suggestion of sexual encounter so there is no need to worry about your youngest child reading this but it is adult enough for moms to enjoy also.
