2 1/2 starsWell....Another highly rated book that didn't do it for me.I liked the premise of the story. It had the potential to be emotionally gut-wrenching.Sadly, I didn't feel it. An awful lot of telling and not so much showing.And Sara, hmmm. First, if someone grows up in San Francisco and has an "eclectic" group of friends, it's puzzling to me that she would be so naive, judgmental, and uptight. Now, I know her views, especially abouthomosexuality, are ridiculously common but it made me not like her very much.Her snide comments and jabs at Ryan were too much and her conversations with her sister were agitating and kinda boring. I also didn't experience Sara and Ryan falling in love. Frankly, I couldn't see what Ryan saw in Sara to begin with.I realize it may sound like I hated this book.I didn't. Ryan was such a sweetheart that he saved the story for me. And even though the writing didn't provide me with the emotions I could have felt for his personal story, I can insert my own understanding and appreciate what he went through.
