This is a nice and comfortable story, there is really not much drama, and the few obstacles on Lex and Tally’s path are easily overcome; but what was good of this novel is the warm and comfortable feeling, the idea that, for how much narrow minded the small town can be, it’s also a place where people know who you are, as a person, and not only as a number. Tally needed to be again a name and a face, even if that name and that face are not good memories for most of the people he left behind.
The other difference in this development, is that, in high school, there was not sexual tension between Lex and Tally; sure maybe Lex did find Tally attractive, but he was not in love, and on the other hand, Tally had a secret boyfriend. So when Tally and Lex meet again, their story is a totally new development, starting from scratch, without loose strings.
