Ok I didn't initially think that I was going to love this book b/c Annie was a bit naïve and it didn't feel authentic for a moment. Then I realized she wasn't going to have a grasp on certain concepts since her parents sheltered her and thought she was "dumb" and she didn't communicate. But eventually the story blossomed and I fell for Alex and Annie. I end up staying up late last night and crying. So five stars! I loved it.
