Many people believe that a boy and a girl cannot be the best of friends without some romantic entanglement. Maybe the two main characters, Macallan and Levi, can convince them otherwise. When Levi moves to Wisconsin from California, the first person he meets is Macallan. When they discover a shared love of an obscure British sitcom, they begin the process of becoming best friends. Through tragedy and romantic involvements, the two work hard to maintain their close relationship. The author Elizabeth Eulberg very effectively uses both of these characters' voices in her narration, which left me definitely routing for both of these likable characters. A much better story than your average chicklit!
