But wait. I get ahead of myself. Here is the summary of the book from Goodreads:
See why I was interested in the book in the first place? A girl entering a boy's life via a dream field of sorts. And it is a reverse "Pretty in Pink" story. The boy is from the wrong side of life. The girl has everything yet is attracted to him, but can't possibly let anyone know for fear of losing the life she knows. I ended up really liking the second half of the book, especially the way the characters grew and came to understand things about themselves.
So let me just say this. Places No One Knows is not a good book to piddle around with. Read it fast, in one or two sittings and you will catch the magic. Read it slowly and you will be tortured. I will be purchasing this book for my library for those incurably romantic types. I bet they will love it. Who doesn't like a good girl catches bad boy story (or was it a bad girl caught by a kind boy)?
Now, do I think the book is Printz-worthy? No, but then neither are 99% of books so that doesn't detract from it much. Read it if you are looking for a good romance this summer.
