Stephanie Perkins’ “Isla And The Happily Ever After” represents what I love most about YA novels: there’s an innocence and purity in how these characters approach love that is refreshing for me. I guess it’s because I am older and a lot more jaded about love that there is a part of me that wants to go back to how I was before, and how these characters are. This book is pure unadulterated romance, and it has the most romantic characters you can hope for, and even has three most romantic settings: New York City, Paris, and Barcelona. I mean, if you cannot fall in love in any of those three cities, then…well, there’s really no hope for you now, is there? I loved this book, I love how it made me feel, I love how it made me hope. Thank God it ends and I am back to reality.
