Well this book took me by surprise.  I hadn't heard of this book until I was looking into taking part in the Winter Biannual Bibliothon (which I took part in and loved).  Honestly, this is not one of those books that I would have automatically picked up but as it was part of the readathon I thought I would give it a go.

There are so many things I enjoyed about this book.  Firstly, the sense of humour of the main character Simon.  Despite the fact that he has a lot to contend with in his book he still manages to come out with little comments that just made me chuckle, whether they were intentional or not I don't know.  Next, would have to be the writing.  The writing in this book grabbed me in right from the very first page and I could not stop reading it until the very last page.  It made for a very interesting lazy Sunday!  Even the romance, although brief, I thought was very realistic and can't wait to find out what happens next.

Such an amazing first book in a series, I cannot wait until I can get my hands on the next book...
