Sharing Sam (Love Stories)

Sharing Sam - Katherine Applegate I haven't read this book in years but the story of Alison, Izzy and Sam has stuck with me. I read this when I was in high school, when I was as young as the characters in this story are (wow, that was a long time ago) and I remember it being so very different from the standard Sweet Dreams fare I was used to. The drama was a little heavier, the issues more mature. It is a love-triangle and I probably won't be heaping this as much praise if I re-read this now (might result in massive eye-rolls) but I still remember how much I swooned over Sam who has a packet of Kleenex in his leather jacket, the logger-head turtles and how cool Izzy was as a best friend.I'm rating this as the fifteen year old lying somewhere in my cynical depths, listening to Tori Amos and Nirvana, figuring out Calculus, while also crying over this book.
