A charming novel about falling in love (or like) in the digital age--the never-before-seen full story.

Madeline and Elliot meet at a New York City restaurant opening. Flirtation--online--ensues. A romance, potentially eternal, possibly doomed, begins.

And, like most things in life today, their early exchanges are available to be scrutinized and interpreted by well-intentioned friends who are a mere click away.

Madeline and Elliot's relationship unfolds through a series of thrilling, confounding, and funny exchanges with each other, and, of course, with their best friends and dubious confidants (Emily and David). The result is a brand-new kind of modern romantic comedy, in format, in content, and even in creation--the authors exchanged e-mails in real time, blind to each other's side conversations. You will nod in appreciation and roll your eyes in recognition; you'll learn a thing or two about how the other half approaches a new relationship . . . and you will cheer for an unexpected ending that just might restore your faith in falling in love, twenty-first-century style.

This is a fun, light book told through email and text. Perfect for a quick read.

Clever little book that is a MUST read for anyone who uses text messages and emails. There are only 4 characters in this book and it is told exclusively through the eyes of each characters words in text/email. Hysterical. I have recommended this book to all my friends. It will only take you 90 minutes to read it and you simply can't put it down! (At least that is a middle aged woman's opinion on the book. Would love to hear what the guys have to say about it). The younger, alas dating generation, will be the target here, but if you need a quick, witty read- this is a MUST.
