Love is a giant leap of faith. That’s just a fact of life so when you’re too young, you may not easily understand that or be ready to take that leap just yet. This is why I keep telling young people I know, timing is one of the key elements in a relationship that will 90 percent work and with timing, yes I also definitely mean the right age!
SO WHEN YOU’RE 16, BE 16! PLAY JACKSTONES OR HOPSCOTCH, RUN AROUND WITH YOUR FRIENDS, CLIMB TREES (I’M A LATE BLOOMER, SORRY) AND READ A LOT OF BOOKS BECAUSE OTHERWISE, YOU MAY END UP WITH A FRUSTRATING STORY LIKE THAT OF THE CHARACTERS IN THIS NOVEL WHO SUFFERED PREMATURE HEARTACHES AND WASTED TIME OVER 12 HOURS WORTH OF PAINFUL AND DRAMATIC GOODBYES! ARGH!
But it happens. People do find love at a tender age and commitment becomes a challenge when they have to go their separate ways perhaps geographically, emotionally or professionally. This is the core of the story, when two young people in love have to say goodbye. It was frustrating a lot, but also inspiring and hopeful some. There were several sweet and funny moments that were written charmingly so despite the disappointments, I still enjoyed the short novel especially with that promising ending. Perhaps you’ll enjoy it even more.
