This is the first time I've read a book by this author and I have to say I was surprised, it's a short, quick read but it has the depth and full bodied characters we associate with a full length book.
I wasn't sure exactly what to expect at first but it soon grew on me I loved Johan and Stella. Stella is the girl that has been dealt a really rotten hand, she's living with her dad's ex-girlfriend who's a stripper, she's dirt poor and bullied at school. Johan is the opposite he comes from a loving family, rich and popular, oh yes and it's his friend that's doing the bullying. These are two people that would never normally spend any real time together but this is not a normal time, certainly not for Johan anyway so they do spend time together and things will never be the same again.
As I've said I really enjoyed this book but, and I know it's free but it would have been nice to have more, how did his family and friends react, what about her dad, what about Joss.
Why 4 stars and not 5, well it had bits I didn't like but difficult to give examples without giving something away, a couple of things really early on, how could he not recognise her when she has purple hair and if she's so poor she's eating out of date food how can she afford the hair dye, minor things I know but they bugged me a bit.
