From the back:

"They were outsiders in love...

Neither of then really fitted into the narrow world of their small Southern town.

The girl's romantic dreams soared too high; the boy's burning ambition drove him too hard.

They were loners in a very special world of love just big enough for two...

Here is an unforgettable exploration of the human heart by a truly remarkable talent."

Bought at a charity shop. I love Anne Tyler!

As I wrote before, I always Anne Tyler - and I liked this early work of hers, too. I love her style and her offbeat characters. This review sums up my feelings quite well:

Thanks for this wishlist book and the cute fairy bookmark, which will take place between the pages of this book. Anne Tyler has always been one of my favourites!

This was OK, but for some reason I don't like these early works as much as the recent books by Tyler. Although this book is tiny, I waited for the story to end. Anyway, Tyler succeeded in describing the soul of teenagers - the utterly loneliness, the high ambitions, the chaos of feelings. The teens haven't changed since 70's, I suppose!

Yet another great book by Anne Tyler.
