I found this book at a thrift shop for seventy five cents. The cover was interesting and when I read it was copyright was 1970 I thought what the heck, it might be neat, compared to most of the typical thrift store books you'd find. I am so glad I found this diamond in the rough.

I spent a total of two hours reading this book from start to finish in one sitting. For just a few short pages this book had me hooked which it doesn't have a lot of time to do being that it's a mere 131 pages long. It's the typical poor girl rich boy love story but better. The characters are honest, witty, sarcastic and loveable. They love each other deeply and it shows, you laugh and you cry with this book. Although you know that Jenny dies it still doesn't take away the effect of sadness. Knowing this was made a movie, I will have to find it somewhere and watch it. Being that Erich Segal wrote the script, if it's as well written as his novel it should a good movie. I highly recommend reading this quick brilliant read.
