This is not a happy love story.
I really enjoyed the "realness" of this book. Its written as a letter from Madelyn to Bennet after the end of their relationship; one that should of never happened and that ended poorly. You see, Bennet is known to the rest of Madelyns peers as "Mr. Cartwright" because he is her college professor. To make things worse, Madelyn is a high school student in an advanced placement program allowing her to attend collage during her Junior year of high school. She is only sixteen.
It really felt as though I was reading a letter written by a sixteen year old girl. I really got a glimpse into the head of a girl who is just starting to figure out herself and life. It didn't feel overly polished and the emotions expressed felt young and appropriately immature, even frantic at times. She just wants to tell their story how it really happened, and why she did what she did. Madelyn makes the types of decisions I would expect a girl her age to make. Ones that are not fully thought though and have major consequences, like withholding her real age from Bennet when they become more than teacher/student.
Overall I really enjoyed this read. Definitely one to add to your TBR list you can pick up a copy once its released on September 8, 2013!
