This book is told from both Noah and Echo's point of view. This alternating between the two main characters really helps you to understand them and their problems better. You really connect to them because you see what they think and feel about things. The other characters too felt like they had personalities and weren't just there to help or hinder Noah and Echo, they were all flawed but in ways that felt real. Never did this book become too typically teenage to the point where you want to roll your eyes, throw it at the floor and walk off because it's given you a headache and made you sick to death of anyone under 20 (which I myself am not so that's irony for you). It felt just right. Yes these characters are hormonal, slightly naive teenagers but they're also smart, determined and they don't always sit around and sulk when there is a problem, they do something about it.
