My Review:
I really liked this book! It started out differently than I was expecting, but that didn't change that it was a good book. Kyle's uncle is a quirky person, but it turns out that his Mum's pretty quirky too :P
I thought it was sweet the lengths to which Kyle was willing to go to in order to get Gretchen :)

Hi Jewelz! I agreed with every part of your review. :) I was surprised at how quirky his mom did turn out to be. Wish a guy would go to those lengths for me! :)

Blessings,
