I have no words for how amazing this book is. It brought me to the moon and back and is the perfect example of the meaning of life through friendship, loss, regrets, love, romance etc.
This is like Four Weddings and a Funeral meets Notting Hill like story. Very well written and highly entertaining. A can't-put-down-book-'til-it's-finished. I trully enjoyed this book.
As much as there is a predictability of what will happen I found myself not wanting to put this book down. The characters are very likeable, almost wanting to be part of that clique.
