Can't recommend this. Essentially, you are looking at two very naive, borderline stupid, characters make some of the most insanely capricious choices ever. People who loved it have called it romantic and heartbreaking, and while I think Will and Zoe made it PERFECTLY clear how much they love one another by saying it every few pages, they don't particularly need one another at this point in their lives. Zoe needs a DCS counselor, and Will needs a therapist. End of.
