Book ~ "Where Rainbows End" - Cecelia Ahern (2004)

From Goodreads ~ From naughty children to rebellious teenagers, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But just as as they're discovering the joys of teenage nights on the town and dating disasters, they're separated. Alex's family move from Dublin to America - and Alex goes with them. For good.

Rosie's lost without him. But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever - and keep her at home in Ireland.

Their magical connection sees them through the ups and downs of each others lives, but neither of them knows whether their friendship can survive the years and miles - or new relationships. And at the back of Rosie's mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them apart, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything for true love?

What I liked about this book: This was an interesting style because it consisted entirely of notes passed in school, emails, instant messages, text messages and letters between all the characters.

What I didn't like about this book: The characters were lacklustre ... I didn't really care about them. They made some really dumb decisions. Also, Alex and Rosie loved each other. Instead of telling each other and having a future together, they tell others. Duh! Forty years later at the age of fifty (like you didn't guess the ending!!), they finally confess this to each other and I bet live happily ever after ... three failed marriages and three kids later.
