All things that can be considered—and oftentimes are—just a bit crazy.
With an alcoholic father and an absentee mother, seventeen-year old Eppie Aberdeen has learned firsthand that life’s circumstances aren’t always sunshine and roses.
So Eppie doesn’t expect the fairytale, because reality certainly isn’t one. She’s not waiting on the handsome prince with his white horse to come to her rescue. But even though she’s not waiting on it, that doesn’t stop nineteen-year-old Lincoln Ross from driving straight into her heart with his teal and white campervan and his too tall stature and perpetually goofy grin.
It’s difficult to believe in a happily ever after when a happy now is quite hard to find. But Lincoln gives Eppie hope that despite the odds, a true and unconditional love might actually be out there. A revised fairytale. A new kind of love story.
But then again, that might just be plain crazy.
(Love Like Crazy is an upper YA novel.)
One of my favorite things about her stories is that she has a way of writing the most sexually intense scenes that don't actually have sex in them. It is amazing how she is able to control the reader in such a way.
I absolutely loved her characters, especially Lincoln. He was my favorite part of the whole story. Not just because he was shmexy and freaking awesome, but the way he treated Eppie. It is so important that young women realize they deserve to be treated with respect by the people they choose to be in a relationship with, and I honestly feel that he was a wonderful example of something they should look to as an expectation.
There were times I was reading this that I literally snorted with laughter. Although it has some pretty heavy content, I really enjoyed that it had humor to help round it out.
There are feels in this book. And they are so wonderful. I highly recommend it.
