Romantic, bittersweet love story
am 21. Juli 2000
When I first started this book, I thought it was corny and soon put it down. But later I got bored and picked it up again. Soon, the story hooked me. I finished it in two days! It was about two high school sweethearts, the gifted football player Luke Muldenhower and beautiful, smart Julie Ellis. They seemed to have the perfect teenage existence until the day Luke discovered that he had cancer. Julie was his cheerleader throughout his illness, refusing to accept defeat. This crisis strengthened their love, but would it break their hearts?
The book is excellent. It was true-to-life, if somewhat predictable and mushy. It taught many life lessons. My favorite parts were when Julie and Luke went to California to visit Luke's uncle and the discovery Julie made at the end.(I won't give it away, you'll have to read it and find out yourself!)
However, there were a few things I didn't like about the book. First of all, Julie was too obsessed with Luke. Unlike him, she had no other interests in her life but their relationship. Also, Julie's mother was a very flat character, appearing mostly to hound her daughter about finding the right college. But overall, this was another great Lurlene McDaniel novel and I reccomend it to all romantics at heart.
