According to the front cover, this book has one beginning, 50 choices, and 20 possible endings. As I chose my own love story, I had some happy endings, and some not-so-happy endings. But with every choice I made, I had a lot of fun. What I loved most about this book is Mimoun's humor. Especially regarding relationships and dating. Here are a few of my favorites bits:
- Getting ready for a date with someone you might like is a terrible thing. ... The act of getting ready for a date is a prayer, like people who dance so that God will make it rain. It conjures the hope you've worked so hard to keep dormant in the innermost chamber of your heart. It brings that hope rushing right back up, so if it doesn't go well, the disappointment is crushing.
- This is what separates the winners and loser in the dating world--who can keep their crazy quiet the longest.
- From that point on you keep dating but stop hoping. It's amazing how many dates you can line up in a single week, even though they are mostly boring and exhausting. And sometimes you DO like a guy (or at least are willing to entertain liking him), and those ones never call you again. You never know why. Romance is a deep and annoying mystery.
