This is a must read for everyone to read!
I am not one who loves mathematics and I was at first a bit worried about reading this, worried that I might not like it since I have no affinity with maths. Luckily you don’t need to love maths to love this book.
Charlie is a wonderful, sweet, but a bit strange of a character. He is awkward (see his notes on girls), but he tries his best. I loved how smart he was and how he tried his best in school. I loved his ideas for pranks, though he at first didn’t participate (for reasons). And when he did participate, I could see why people followed him, and wanted him to lead.
I loved how he reacted to Charlotte, and how awkward it at times got (sooo cute). I won’t spoil anything else, but believe me you will love him for all he does for Charlotte.
There are various hilarious situations happening, like him driving a car in a garden of and elderly lady and all that happens with that.
Charlie starts off a bit strange, but he grows, throughout the book you will see him change, see him understand the world just a little bit more.
Charlotte, my second favourite character (ah, darn it, I loved them all), poor girl. I won’t spoil anything, you will have to find out for yourself why she is a poor girl. I loved her spunky attitude, and I loved how she was so smart and knew a lot of things. Even with everything happening she tries to stay positive and joyful. I really admire that.
Then we have Charlie’s friends, his family, that elderly lady. It is quite rare for me that I like all characters and wish they all would have gotten more time in the spotlight. But I did, they all did their things, they all helped Charlie so much with everything. Yes, even the old grumpy lady (who turns out to be pretty nice).
The story is great, I won’t say much, since I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Just that it is wonderful, great and you will cry, laugh, scream and shake your head.
This is a book I would highly recommend.
