While zoning out in Chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk, and added a message to her.
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters— sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery, and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out . . .
Kasie West brings irresistible wit, warmth, and sparkle to this swoon-worthy story of love showing up when you least expect it.
My main reason for wanting to read this book (aside from the totally cute cover) was that it's a penpall romance. I adore those and you can't really do anything wrong in my opinion with writing a cute romance about penpalls, especially since they were writing real letters to start with.
I guessed fairly early on who it actually was that Lily was exchanging notes with and it also didn't take long to get revealed, but I didn't mind at all because I really enjoyed reading about these two characters falling for each other.
I also absolutely loved most of the secondary characters. Especially Lily's family and her best friend. Her family may have been very chaotic and kind of crazy but they clearly love each other very much. I loved reading about them all.
So what more can I say except that I freaking loved this book? It was cute, romantic, funny and the writing was so good. This definitely is a YA book I highly recommend.
