From reading reviews you may get many different opinions on
what this novel is about. Some say the message is that highschool love never lasts; try telling that to the married couples I know who dated in high school. The book isn't about that it is about how people, young people especially, will not usualy know if a relationship will last forever until a great deal of time passes. Relationships are hard work and even if it does last forever it won't be easy. Another message is that love may break your heart but it isn't the end of the world.
This book is great for young people read about love and sex.
