I have a confession to make.
I’m actually in love with this book.
I read it when I was in 7th or 8th grade, but moved to the high school before the rest of the series came out. Then, all these years later (
holy shit - it’s been like 7 years), a student in the class I do my field placement in was reading what looked like the second book. Sure enough, that’s exactly what it was. So I came home and downloaded all four of them.
I know they’re “young adult” books (the main characters are 12 years old), but I still adore them. It’s nice because (at least in the first two books), there is no romantic tension between the two mains. They’re just a boy and a girl who are incredibly good friends; closer than even they realize, but not in the typical “boy and girl grow up together and fall in love” way. Just two people of opposite genders who share a close bond that does not beg to be turned into more.
It would be really cool to read some adult fiction like this - anyone got any suggestions?
