Powerful words that leave the readers to their imagination

Ronit & Jamil has been a wonderful ride. It actually surprised me that it was written in prose. but then again Romeo and Juliet was written in somewhat the same way because it's a play. in a way, i don't understand why this book has low ratings....

I truly loved this book

I really relate to this book very much. Most especially with Pen. This book was so honest. Many symbolisms but the most profound symbolism is dinosaurs. this is the type of book that you seem to annalize. Maybe it was just me who annalized it but it...

I cannot give justice to this book, so good

all i can feel about this book is envy... this book is just written so well. it still has the same formula with To All The Boys I've Loved Before with family, friendship, relationships, but love was raised to the second power. so why envy? i feel...
