This title may seem familiar to many. This is because this is the 15th anniversary reissue. It involves Beatrice Jordan and Jacob Grace who become friends. They each are looking for a way to escape and they find it though each others creative gifts and their insecurities.
I did not read it the first time around and I count that as me great loss. From the first page, the writing caught me and I did not want to let go. There are heartbreaking moments that I will remember for a long time. That is not all, though. There are funny moments also.Beatrice and Jacob's relationship read as a real-life one, including the imperfections. The writing was so intelligent and wonderful. However, even these words do not do justice to this book.
If you did or did not read this book the first time, I most highly recommend you pick up a copy and read it now.
I received this book from NetGalley and Sourcebooks in exchange for my honest review. I thank each of them.
