For some reason I didn't see that this was a verse novel when I took it out. I'm really not that fond of verse novels. I don't get the appeal of reading a story like that. So when I say I liked this book and it was an easy read, I wasn't surprised that a reader made a comment about how this wasn't really a verse novel in Verse! That would make sense, because I liked the way it read. Anyways... I liked the story , but was bothered by the age of Rem. I think he was too old for Sara and it gave me the icky feeling. Besides that I liked how Sara was expressed in the story.
