A very sweet love story. It makes you realize that you had it all wrong in high school. Make sure you have tissues handy!

I really enjoyed this story. I loved her perspective (as a nurse) and despite the sad subject matter, I found it to be a wonderful story. I usually avoid "sad" books but this was a winner.

I love this author, and once again, she does not disappoint. This was a poignant book of those who somehow feel left out of things when younger in school and always in life. It shows how one perceives themselves and the way other people see us. A great story that teaches us that things are not always as they seem. Sad, but beautiful. GinaK

Classic Berg. A thoughtful look at those who are not a part of the "in" crowd in high school, and how they feel even into adulthood.

I have never read a Berg book i did not like. I have some that i liked better than others. This is one of them. This is a lovely story about a man who has an illness and chooses to not persue treetment. His visiting nurse, Myra is someone i came to care about as a beautiful lonely kind heart. This story is so well written it flows...making it feel like it is over before i wanted it to be. Ms Berg writes like life is sometimes or could very well be at any moment. Read just one of her books in your persuit of tasteing authors, her novels are treasures in your hand that creeps into the mind & heart.

Another great read from Elizabeth Berg. I loved the role reversal of the two main characters as they adjust to their new roles in each other's lives.

I really thought this book was a looking glass and different perspective of high school days and how we see ourselves. If you've ever felt inadequate and like a nerdy unpopular kid in school this book will make you re-think the whole ugly idea. We can be more and be happy if we let ourselves. I think Elizabeth Berg gets it right and does another amazing job in this book. A great read!!!
