Dating Amy is the best thing that has ever happened to Craig. However, it is also the worst thing that ever happened. Craig and Amy are complete opposites and should have never gotten together in the first place. Amy is beautiful and the intelligent student body president. While Craig is a Dungeons & Dragons geek who is a bit awkward. During their senior year, Craig and Amy go through a vicious cycle of breaking up and getting back together. Will Craig and Amy be able to work through their differences?

The novel is a heartwarming read about high school romance. The characters were relatable and realistic. It was interesting to watch the characters grow and experience life. While I found the book to be realistic, I had a hard time liking the main characters. I found Craig to be a bit self-centered and I was a bit confused with Amy's motives. Overall, an enjoyable read but, not something I would reread again.

Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)

The worst thing that's ever happened to Craig is also the best: Amy. Amy and Craig never should've gotten together. Craig is an awkward, Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school.

Yet somehow they did. Until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over.

Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig's exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon.

Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy's quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig's girlfriend?and sometimes doesn't.

Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys. Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis's debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and utterly universal experience of first love.
