Charlotte is an old soul weary of the "games," but she is renewed and lifted up by the naivety and decency of the wide eyed Freshman boy.
The characters are deep and well drawn and heartbreaking. Family members, teachers, team mates, and friends are all authentic.
The setting of far West Texas is a character as well. I highly recommend this book to teenagers, teachers, and parents who want a glimpse into this world. Dec 05, Whitney rated it it was amazing.

Flickinger's book is reminiscent of Perks of Being a Wallflower to me-- a boy just starting to grow up in the midst of loss. Zain is a character that many high school students will identify with, and reading it as a mother myself made my heart break thinking about how essential it is for teenagers to be validated and supported.
For that reason, I loved the introduction of his Aunt Mellie, and I felt strangely protective over him as he embarked on his first romantic relationship with Charlotte All in all, it's a solid view into the American middle class high school experience that may be eye-opening for some. A really quiet, well-intended coming of age story that didn't involve telepathic wars, terminal illnesses or unnecessary plot padding.

The insights on Zain's relationship with Jackson, his fear of the kitchen, the lack of happy endings for their own sake, to futures that will be or could have been, to the nighttime runs with Charlotte when the world is asleep - everything works incredibly well here. Matt Flickinger's style was slightly a bit too verbose at times.

I had to read the first paragrap A really quiet, well-intended coming of age story that didn't involve telepathic wars, terminal illnesses or unnecessary plot padding. I had to read the first paragraph several times, for example. I understood what he was saying but cumbersome phrasing and a few typos and run-on sentences pulled me out of the story and were a bit jarring. But the story was just so good that it gets all five stars.
