An impressive novel from Mine Soysal, telling the love and friendship story between two youngsters full of conflicts and question marks. The book makes the reader to question the concepts like friendship, love and commitment and to think once more about  their responsibilities. With its young language and different point of view, this book is a fresh and realistic example of young adult literature. “Real” characters are taking place of the “ideal” ones that we used to see in many other young adult books and the story is being told both from the eyes of the girl and the boy. With its background reminding the important social developments in Turkey during 1999-2001, this book is liked both by youngsters and adults.
