Summer vacation 1st year of highschool, (2008/2009) I randomly found this book in a public library and quickly read the entire thing while waiting for my mother to pick me up. I was engulfed and couldn't help loving it due to the fact that her just knowing things, love for art, and train of thoughts are so similar to mine. I dreamed of having a knowing yet unknowingly experience of meeting "the one" like her "masked man." fast forward 3 years later, I did. 10 minutes before leaving at 2 am, I danced with a boy, at my uncle's small family wedding celebration in their trailer home. We danced 2 songs. He wasn't the most handsome I've ever seen, but before realizing that months later, despite us not wearing any masks and the small space, I recall not remembering his face. Only how we different and right it felt while dancing together. Anyways, after that life and relationship experience, I searched everywhere for this book. My boy dancer is no longer "the one" in my heart, but this simple prose narration still gave me the butterflies, heart thumping, lovey dovey crush feels that I missed as a teen and I needed to find it. Fast forward to now, April 11th 2018, unplanned, I saw my Goodreads thread, asking to find that book, was answered. I downloaded the audio, and listened to it completely while working. The Narrator read it almost as I do in my head. I'm so happy. So satisfied of this instant gratification (yet not so instant). It's simple, yet one of my life favorites. Sometimes simple is, well, a lot. If you love, real love, and appreciate the simple things in life. I recommend this book no matter what age. Blessings.
good, sweet, poetic, and totally reminiscent of teenagerdom. fun listen.

I was to keen on this book through the first half of it as I found parts of it was draggy and unnecessary, but as it went on it got better and better. The last half of the book really captured my attention and kept me wondering what will happen next. Overall I enjoyed this and really loved the ending😀
