The Vine: October 19, 2012
About 15-20 years ago I read a young-adult book about a high-school romance that I've been trying to remember the title of ever since.
It was about a boy who became interested in a girl because he kept seeing her name on the due-date cards of all the books he checked out from the library (so…it's a little out of date). As someone who's always been an avid library user, I always thought that would be the perfect way to meet someone.
I also remember that he was a year younger than her, which caused trouble at school for some reason. I think there may have been a scene where they took a break from working on homework together to make out, and set a kitchen timer to limit how long it would be.
If anyone knows this book it would be wonderful to see if I can find a copy again!
