Conhecimento Comum



*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

When I saw this book available at NetGalley, I didn't hesitate to request it. And when my request was aproved, I could hardly believe it... After all, I had read so many positive reviews about the books written by Rachel Cohn e David Levithan that I was super curious!

Maybe it was a case of having too much expectations, but I was a little disappointed... I don't mean by this that I didn't like it, cause I did, I just didn't love it. I thought I would get caught up in the story and with the characters, in an exciting and unforgetable story of love and disencounters, but it just didn't happen.

I really liked the premise of the story, two teenagers who never met and that start a relationship using a red notebook, left at the shelf of a bookstore, and where they exchange dares, impressions and thoughts and where they strip their soul to each other. My biggest problem was with the characters, cause I couldn't relate to them. Lily was particularly annoying. I just can't believe that a 16 year old girl, living in New York, with a great family dinamics, who practices sports and is perfectly integrated in her community, doesn't have, nor has ever had, any friends. And she's too naive and childish, she sometimes has attitudes more apropriate to a 12 year old... I think the authors (or Rachel Cohn, cause I read that they wrote the chapters alternately) wanted Lily to come across as adorably excentric, but she just felt weird and childish to me. Oh, and for such a close family, with lots of Christmas traditions, to go their separate way at Christmas, leaving Lily alone with her brother, just made no sense...

Dash I liked better because, even though his relationship with his family is complicated, he was able to surpass it by adopting an alternate family composed by a hand full of friends, also a bit misfits themselves, and clinging to books. Although he came across as an annoying know-it-all sometimes, it's understandable that it's a sort of defense mechanism, and the way he is there for Lily when she needs him totally redeemed him in my eyes.

It's a sweet story, just not magical as I thought it would be. But if I ever reread it, it will be at Christmastime!
