Mark has finally gotten the attention of the girl of his dreams. Only, his lame attempts at romance through texts and emails seem to be turning her off. When he gets put in the back of the room in an over-full class at school, he begins to discover old notes giving advice about how to write a great love letter. At first he thinks he’s stumbled on some long-forgotten notes passed in class ages ago, but every time he reads them they seem directed specifically to him. They also appear at the perfect moment each time he needs more advice. It’s like someone is haunting him.
How do the notes keep appearing? Who’s writing them? Why?
This was such an amazing and sweet novella about love and the ability to share it. Mark is an unpopular boy at school who happens to have a crush on Bethany, the most popular girl. He has tried to email and text her, but that has not worked. Then, when he is placed at the back of the class, someone starts leaving him hints on what to do to get her attention. The mysterious helper coaches the young Mark on how to gain Bethany’s affection and keep it.
I thought this was just a sweet story until I go to the end. I was only going to give this book a 4 star rating, but the last chapter blew me away and brought me to tears!! I can’t begin to tell you how moving and meaningful that entire chapters was to the entire story! Those few pages catapulted this to a whooping “I wish there were more than 5 Starts to give this little gem” rating. This is an author worth keeping an eye on because this tiny bit of a story has more depth and feeling in it than a lot of full length novels that I have come across. Kudos, D.G. Driver!
