Product description

A film that’s melted all our hearts: the love story of a soul-of-the-party drinker and a geeky girl. With Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller playing the two leads. Real and very beautiful; a book to remember always.

Sutter Keeley is the guy you want at your party. He’ll get everyone dancing. Okay, so he’s no shining academic star. But he’s wired straight into the joy of life, OK? The glorious moon, the huge apple-pie sun, the electrifying colours of the world. He’s drunk on the splendiferous Now. (And yes, plain drunk as well, admittedly.) Then Sutter meets Aimee. Clueless Aimee, who needs him so much. He can’t help falling in love back a little bit too. How can he avoid breaking Amy’s heart, and stay hooked into the eternal, splendiferous Now? Writing so vivid and responsive it’ll make you quiver inside. We finished this book with the grief that you feel saying goodbye to an old friend.

    This book is one of my favorite books, I must have read it over 5 times. It is excellent and you can't put the book down until you finish it!
    I was very disappointed with the movie however as it was completely different to the book. I would recommend this book to anyone as it is a mix of genres!
