For me, reading Wanderlove was very nostalgic. It was like reading my first Sarah Dessen book when I was a preteen and being engrossed by the story from the very first page. As I've grown, so have my tastes in books, but I always have a soft spot for well-written fluffy YA. Wanderlove definitely hit that spot.You see, I found it hard not to compare myself to our main character, Bria. We are about the same age, not very spontaneous or adventurous, and we both gave up art after high school. This was a very touching part of the story-line (for me) because it made me realize just how much I miss art.Now, I didn't quit for the same reasons Bria did. I quit because the pressure of my high school AP Art class took all the fun out of making art. I have always drawn for fun, and being forced to make everything perfect just took all the joy out of it for me. (Not to mention my art teacher telling me I would never graduate and pretty much ever get anywhere if I did't go to school more often... even though she knew the reason I missed school is from my anxiety problems >.>) But anyways, I haven't drawn much since high school, but I never really knew how much I really missed it, or even how much I sometimes need art in my life until I read this book.I really don't have that many complaints about this book. The story was interesting enough to keep me hooked throughout the book, and all the characters (even the minor characters) were well rounded out and I ended up loving them all for different reasons. The only thing I can complain about would be the ending. I felt it a bit rushed towards the last fifteen or so pages, but that might just be me getting all upset that the book was over. Seriously, I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun contemporary YA book that can take you back to the happiest moments of your teenage years (or years to come)!
