The book is written from the viewpoint of both Chris and Amelia. Chris is searching for love, and by the end of the book, he starts to think that if Amelia were only 2 years older, she would be the perfect woman for him. Through his journal entries, we experience the life of a college student that drinks to much, cares too much and worries to much.
Everyone who has ever been 15 or ever been in love can relate to this book and empathize with Amelia.
Even though Chris & Amelia are 6 years apart, they share a love of literature. It is great when books talk about other great books- hopefully the reader will be so intrigued she will run out and read those books!
