    The first time Wes meets June, he thinks her mouth is too wide and her eyes are too far apart June, in return, thinks his hair is shaggy It would seem these two were not meant to be together right from the start And yet, against all odds, their paths continue to cross Thus begins a romance where nothing is easy to explain or simple to figure out Navigating through friends, family, and their own heads, Wes and June fumble towards a unique happy ending.Wow, this book was incredible It s funn The first time Wes meets June, he thinks her mouth is too wide and her eyes are too far apart June, in return, thinks his hair is shaggy It would seem these two were not meant to be together right from the start And yet, against all odds, their paths continue to cross Thus begins a romance where nothing is easy to explain or simple to figure out Navigating through friends, family, and their own heads, Wes and June fumble towards a unique happy ending.Wow, this ...

    The reason I picked up the book is just because of the cover It has a pretty cover and that s all I m so sorry but, this is not a book that I will pick up for myself But, if you really like some YA fiction with not too much romance in it, this might be the right book for you.The story is about two students that go to the same school The girl just moved to the neighbourhood while the guy, who has been raised in the neighbourhood, just broke up with his girlfriend And I bet you can guess what The reason I picked up the book is just because of the cover It has a pretty cover and that s all I m...

    How to describe The Big Crunch Well, I d liken it to a rather nice stroll through the park nothing extraordinary or supernatural, but sometimes normal and sweet is a welcome change from all the vampires and zombies and smoldering eyes The pacing seemed a little slow, especially at first when Wes and June go about their separate lives in the same high school bubble They d brush against each other every so often, but drift apart again withoutthan a backwards glance When they finally c How to describe The Big Crunch Well, I d liken it to a rather nice stroll through the park nothing extraordinary or supernatural, but sometimes normal and sweet is a welcome change from all the vampires and zombies and smoldering eyes The pacing seemed a little slow, especially at first when Wes and June go about their separate lives in the same high school bubble They d brush against each other every so often, but drift apart again withoutthan a backwards glance When they finally crunched so to...

    Man, can Pete Hautman write accurately about what it s like to be a teen The one drawback to this book, and the reason I didn t give it 5 stars, is that it s so realistic that it may not stand out in a world where everything is turned up to 11 I hesitate to call this book a romance because it implies sweeping emotions and insurmountable obstacles and dramatic climaxes But the emotions in the book are quite sweeping they sweep up Wes and June in ways that confuse and frighten them And ther Man, can Pete Hautman write accurately about what it s like to be a teen The one drawback to this book, and the reason I didn t give it 5 stars, is that it s so realistic that it may not stand out in a world where everything is turned up to 11 I hesitate to call this book a romance because it implies sweeping emotions and insurmountable obstacles and dramatic climaxes But the emotions in the book are quite sweeping they sweep up Wes and June in ways that confuse and frighten them And there are obstacles they re just things like not having a car and having to move because of your dad s dumb job and not being able to affordcell phone minutes This seems so ordinary, but it felt so poignant to me all they want to do is be together, but they have no sa...

    What I really liked about this book The characters They were all really real and relatable, not blown out of proportion and overly perfect like in a lot of YA books with a romance Wes and June were really likable, which is one of the reasons I kept reading They had their flaws, and that just made me like them all theThe relationship between Wes and June Unlike sooo many YA books you see, this book didn t use the cliche boy gir...

    Hauptman s romance novel was quite a disappointment to me There was a lot of narrative emphasizing the third person point of view As a result, I felt bogged down as I read The entire first half was very slow paced and tedious not to mention whoever designed the cover told the entire story in just four panels I never felt any empathy nor did I relate to any of the major or minor characters They all felt stilted, stereotypical, and forced The latter half of the book had some innovative act Hauptman s romance novel was quite a disappointment to me There was a lot of ...
