Love and Other Perishable Items - Laura Buzo

This was a very emotionally satisfying book that I read in one go.

There's something about unrequited love in books--I always want it to end up in a happily ever after, but the two main characters of this book have an unavoidable age gap that makes this book unpredictable and kept me interested throughout. I felt very invested in the world Buzo had created and wanted to see where all the other people Amelia worked with ended up.

Seeing Chris through Amelia's perspective, and then seeing him through his own eyes, commenting on what matters to him, is exceedingly intriguing. This book was really well-written and both characters had very succinct voices that held true to the age and personality differences.

This book provided a beautiful look at how two different people see themselves, each other, and the world around them.
