Michael (Del) has had a shit life until he meets Lauren. She makes his life richer just by being there, pushing his boundaries. Michael makes her life confusing. His family is virtually non existent and he is one angry guy. Lots of angst and beautiful moments bring this story together. Only had two issues, first being that it was hard getting past the chapters alternating between the past and present, from memory surrounding three stages of their lives. The second issue (which shows how much i got into this story) was the ending, it jumped ahead a few years to summarise, it would have been good to read about the missing years. If it wasn't for the need for sleep, I would have burnt the midnight oil and read this in one sitting!
