People have been telling me to read this book for years and I finally did this week. It was a perfectly pleasant read, and I don't not recommend it, but I won't be pestering anyone to read it. I did very much like the first two-thirds of the book, but when Cassandra decides she loves Simon, well, it goes downhill pretty quickly. Too much agonizing. Again, I think I would have liked it better if I'd first read it as a teenager.
