So I have-- guess how many-- Three Things.
But, sorry to tell, not such great things.

Number 1: Jessie is stupidly annoying. Really??? Just ASSUME that guy is SN?? Is she serious??
Number 2: Ethan is fantastic. HE MEMORIZED POETRY FOR GOD'S SAKE. Gilbert Blythe called and asked for his swoon-worthy persona back. But SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER He and SN are not similar. At all. Ethan never shows his witty, fun, funny, silly side in real life. I can't picture him as SN in actual reality.
END SPOILER
Number 3: SN was everything I wanted for Jessie, happiness and sweetness and funniness. UNTIL. UNTIL. UNTIL.
WHAT IN THE WORLD.
WHO LIKES THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES MORE THAN THE BOOKS. WHO. WHO. WHO.
THE CAST IS AWESOMESAUCE, SURE. EVEN, AS SN POINTS OUT, EMMA WATSON IS AMAZING.
BUT BETTER THAN THE BOOKS????????????? IS THIS SECRETLY THE AUTHOR'S OPINION????? BECAUSE I CAN'T RESPECT A WOMAN WHO THINKS THAT WAY.
And I certainly cannot admire a guy like that.

Otherwise, I got my cheesy fun romance. If I'm being honest, I feel that it started off much better than it ended.
As soon as I started reading, I was drawn in. I don't know what it was. The unique format, maybe? But I didn't want to stop reading. Even when I was angry at Jessie I didn't want to stop because I was looking forward to our finale. But then it was a bit of a let-down. Jessie is not a princess that she can go around playing with Liam and Caleb's hearts.

This sounds a lot harsher than the emotions I'm really feeling. Don't freak. I don't hate it. In fact it gets three stars!! I'm just a bit grumpy today.

Such a neat little story! I like the idea of telling someone three things as a way to get to know somebody but as a parent I think if an unknown person were talking to my teen by text I would not be happy!

A really cute romantic read! Loved the anonymous email idea and the fact that there was some more depth to this story in addition to the romance. Friendship, grief, and fitting in were all themes that played a big part, giving this something more than a light and fluffy feel.

This book reminded me so much of the movie 'You've got Mail'. The way the characters changed/acted was very realistic and felt relatable. Although it was slightly predictable, it was still a good story nonetheless. I definitely think it was a worthwhile read and that it was very enjoyable.

Overall I enjoyed this story. The way that Julie dealt with loss was very real, as was her moving and having to start completely over. I was able to figure out who the anonymous person was about half way through the book, but then again after that I was also always trying to make sure who I thought it was was correct and it wasn't actually someone else.

A wonderful combination of You've Got Mail and The Breakfast Club. I loved this story of loss and love with a dash of mystery and found it impossible to put down halfway through.

I simply enjoyed this story. It had a sweet and swoony HEA with laugh-out-loud humor throughout. There were just a couple of underdeveloped elements that prevented me from giving it 5 STARS, but besides that - near perfection.

Very cute story! Hard to put down and kept me guessing until the very end.

One of the best teen romances I've read. Maybe ever. Many thanks to Autumn for the recommendation and loan.
I was reading late at night and one of my kids woke up and needed me .... I don't want to include spoilers so let me just say that it was seriously at the exact sentence of the most pivotal moment of the book, a heartbeat before the big reveal. AAAHHH!

“Perfect days are for people with small, realizable dreams. Or maybe for all of us, they just happen in retrospect; they're only now perfect because they contain something irrevocably and irretrievably lost.”
