I'll be honest, this book took me a minute to get into. I couldn't tell who it was written for. As a recently married twenty-something, I knew the characters would likely be relatable and I'd be able to empathize with the main issue. Fromm used acronyms like OMG and WTF unironically.  At the same time I felt there was an "oh, remember when..." tone going on that I couldn't relate to and I thought would be better suited for my grandmother.

All that being said, I probably spent a only 6 hours completing this book, 5 of which were in a single sitting. I could place myself, my sister, my friend into the shoes of Taz or Elmo, and it seemed way too real. The two-year span of the book at first seemed daunting, but as I read, each new day for Taz and Midge was something I wanted to explore - I was looking forward to their future far more than Taz. The story flows so seamlessly, never missing a beat, and I just could not put it down.
