I liked this book a lot because it's true that it was a love story but at the same time it wasn't like the usual Disney love stories we all know. In this book the main character Eliza does fall in love, but she doesn't wallow in pain and sadness when her loved one leaves, she does something about it. I love the fact that the author gave her guts and smarts. I also love how Eliza is so amazingly self aware about this love she has. Definitely not the typical love story, good ending though.
This is only the first time reading the book but I will definitely reread it. There are a lot of other issues shown in the book like conformity and being an outsider, freedom from expectations placed on your gender and such which is another reason why I love this book so much. Very layered and definitely makes you think about human relationships among other things.
