This book is a "Fast Read"!
I decided to read this book, because it was on the list of top 200 books, chosen by book clubs.
I enjoyed the book and recommended it to my reading group.
It was interesting to discuss the story of "Teenage Love" with my friends, we looked at the content, basically, from a parent's point of view. I would say, it has mass appeal, since dealing with teenagers is an experience everybody recognizes. While the book is set in the 60's - some things never change. Enjoy!
