I've declared this a paperback summer (apart from my library holds over which I have no control). Took this to the beach and enjoyed it. I read this a looooong time ago (saw the movie, too, but have little memory of it- looks like the two are fairly different). Towards the end, the book felt a little too quippy/clever (one liner after one liner), but they're all very good, and such a great first novel. Great light read.
