My only wish was for a bit more interaction between Ian and Justina – other than that, the book was well-written and mdllom voice never faltered. I don’t like feeling lost as to what is going on in a story, so the whole first chapter really bugged me.
Jul 14, Savannah Books With Bite rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed reading about Justina a This is such a cute story that left me laughing and smiling so much! Well, I rogin say I liked the voice.

Aug 24, Lisa rated it liked it Shelves: I loved every page and it will steal your heart just from the description, you will buy it just to see if it is as funny and the description and if funny isn’t the word then interesting because how can you say no to a night that has all that listed in it!

Told in twelve and a half minute segments with convenience store commercial interruptions thrown in, it felt like the author didn’t trust the story enough to let it tell itself. As a character, Justina makes little sense. I like that the story is told in flashbacks to a couple of people at z convienence store. An Endless Quest Book. Overall, I didn’t like this book.
I saw others describe this book as worthy of being a John Hughes’ movie and honestly, that is so true. This book is so much fun! I grinned with fluffy happiness when the most unexpected people came through for her.

Really, he was the sweetest guy.
At first, I thought I wasn’t going to finish the book the beginning was a little confusing and not that interesting–for me but as I skimmed through the pages I realized it was much, much better than I thought. Sorry if this sounded awful, the book is totally read-able.
