Naomi and Ely have grown up across the hall from each other in their Manhattan apartments. They have been together forever and know every detail about each other. Naomi knows that she and Ely will grow up to be married, have children, and live happily ever after.

Even if Ely is gay.

However, as many of us find out, life rarely turns out the way people plan. Parents don't always stay married, we don't always marry the person we love the most, people don't always keep promises, boys don't always love girls, and soul mates don't really exist. No matter how much you think they do. No matter how desperately you want them to. Life just doesn't happen that way. And really, should it?

This story is told in chapters of varying points of view. Your heart races, it aches, and it loves while you are brought into the world of lovable but flawed characters.

One of the biggest questions that comes up again and again is: How does one go on with life when everything they once knew and once planned on is no longer possible?

Not a bad story, actually quite cute but the fact that some of the characters had the same name was annoying and confusing. Also, the writing wasn't great. They use emoticons in some parts instead of words and that sucked because it was hard to follow the story and it got annoying to read. I liked it but had I know it was gonna be like that I would have just watched the movie and not read the book.
