This is one of those "why haven't I read this before now" books. I loved every minute of reading it. Every sentence. Every piece of punctuation. It was funny, it was sad, it was romantic. My only complaint is that I'm 45 years old and where's my Smerko?

When I finished reading this, I honestly thought Steve Kluger might have ruined me for all other fiction. I have never laughed out loud so much reading a novel. I have never had my heart so firmly in my throat, hoping against hope that the author would find a way to fix things for EVERYONE even though several characters were moving inexorably towards a heartbreaking collision. It's so freakin' heartfelt and beautiful. The HEA is sweet even with the realistic bit of sadness. A perfect love story, or possibly more than one, depending on how you look at it.
