This was an okay, easy read. The first half felt a little drawn out but it picked up once our couple were left alone and could work out their issues (something they could easily have done a long time ago). Some of the dialogue felt off for teenagers and the lightning storm was unintentionally funny.
I was really disappointed that the main characters both had romantic (and sexual - reading between the lines this was unprotected at least once for Zorie) relationships with others during the time that they were apart, aged 16/17 and while they were both allegedly still hung up on each other! This wasn???t even addressed as an issue but I felt so bad for Lennon???s girlfriend who presumably didn???t know he was ???in love??? with someone else when she decided to sleep with him.
The characters were otherwise okay, but this aspect made them morally unlikeable to me and lessened the impact of their intimate scene. Plus, since it really didn???t add to the story, I wondered why they needed to have sexual histories at their ages other than to make the story more ???sex positive???
I also didn???t like that she used a telescope to spy on him getting undressed in his bedroom. If it was a boy doing this to a girl I feel that there would have been a lot more complaints.
