    Love means never having to say you're sorry is probably among some of the most ridiculous statements ever Luckily it's a rare blemish on a simple but beautiful story Plus it's cheesy corny and insanely quotable so I'll have to give it a pass on that A girl and a boy meet and fall in love Jenny is a poor artistic sorta Catholic Radcliffe educated Italian American brainiac with a razor sharp tongue Oliver is a rich WASPy Harvard Preppy jock with a slew of Daddy issues and a Roman numeral after his name They fall in love despite the huge social gap between them Few Daddy issues ensue a fight or two happens the cheesy phrase see above is uttered to my sheer mortification They may or may not name their future kid Bozo the Clown Then Jenny dies gasp And I bawl my eyes out No worries no spoiler tags were needed We are warned about her death in the very first and famous paragraph What can you say about a twenty five year old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant That she loved Mozart and Bach The Beatles And me We know about Jenny's death from the start and it is a true testament to Segal's brilliant characterization and narrative skills that her death still hits home still leaves all but the most heartless readers a bawling blob of tears and snot It did so for me and I am a self proclaimed cold hearted cynicThis book is written in a fresh and honest voice The characters feel truly alive It is beautiful simple short and funny It is sweet and touching but not overly melodramatic It is a quintessential love story and is fully worth the few well spent reading hours I've read it several times since age 12 and every time it melts my stony callousy heart What the hell makes you so smart? I askedI wouldn't go for coffee with you she answeredListen I wouldn't ask youThat she replied is what makes you stupid
