It’s a wonder everyone who uses public transport in winter doesn’t keel over and die of germ overload.
I really, really loved this novel. It was just so cute and sweet but deep in certain parts and evoked all the feels.
One day in December, Laurie sees a boy while she is on the bus, and they lock eyes. The connection is instantaneous and for Laurie, it is love at first sight. Both are too stunned by the quick connection to get on/off the bus, and they don’t see each other again… until that boy shows up at a Christmas party a year later on the arm of Laurie’s best friend. GAH!
The story goes on to follow Laurie, the boy Jack, and her best friend Sarah as they navigate through their twenties, dealing with the trials and tribulations of life.
It is was just so endearing, I couldn’t put it down. I stayed up til 2am to finish; I had to know what was going to happen with all my new friends (aka the characters in the book). It is, at times, laugh out loud funny, and other times I was soaking a kleenix with my tears.
For a cute little seasonal read, I highly recommend this novel 🙂
