Far-fetched, over-the-top, silly, unrealistic, totally in your dreams concept. I loved it. Loved it. Janette Rallison has done it again and I can't wait to read more by her!!
I loved Annika as a main character. She was so determined and headstrong, and just loved her brother so much. I felt so terrible for her and how she was dealing with all of it, the nightmares were especially scary. On the other hand I adored Jeremy. Their relationship was so touching and sweet and heart-renching all at the same time. They felt so real, and I drew so close to both of them. Not to mention that Annika has the best sense of humor! Truly 'laugh out loud like a nut case' moments in this book. Yes, it did have a very serious problem, that Jeremy had cancer but Janette managed to keep it light but still it had an emotional impact on the reader. It was a perfect balance. Steve was another great character. I have no idea what actors are like (I've never met one) but he seemed very realistic, plus he's very sweet. There was more to him that met the eye.
The plot was, sure far-fetched, but SO entertaining!! I cannot stress that enough, it was hilarious! The situations Annika found herself it were priceless... The writing was descriptive yet kept on moving and not once did I say "ok now lets get going". It was a nice quick, fun, but touching read that I highly recommend to anyone who loves romantic comedy's! It has made it to my favourite shelf!
"I would have expected to see this sort of line if, say, Elvis had returned from the dead to give a concert. Or if some eccentric yet ultra-cool billionaire was blessing the lives of deserving teens by handing out free sports cars. But I hadn‟t expected to see this many people lined up in the dark waiting for the Day-After-Thanksgiving sale at Toys "R" Us. Really, whatever happened to good old-fashioned procrastination? Apparently every resident of Henderson, Nevada, had come out, and it was still only 4:50 A.M. The store didn‟t even open for another ten minutes.
