I am still not sure how this book came to be on my library holds list, and when I started reading I had no real understanding of what the story was about (math? Or something?). It turned out to be the ideal way to approach this book. If I had known that there was a supernatural element to the story I may have been deterred from reading it, which would have been tragic. Zenn Diagram is touching, bright, and funny.
This story is about destiny and meant-to-be love in a Sleepless in Seattle meets Eleanor and Park way. The story was always one step ahead of me in a way that heightened the emotions and avoided becoming cheesy.
While it is rich with emotions and includes characters who have endured tragedy, Wendy Brant never takes the story to dark or desperate places, which I found refreshing. All of the characters are interesting and well structured while the story does focus intently on Zenn and Eva.
The pace of the plot kept the pages turning quickly and I was left wanting more. If you enjoy YA contemporary love stories that are a touch angsty and dramatic this book is absolutely for you. If you think that you might enjoy this book, I urge you to get a copy, ignore the book jacket and blurbs, and start reading.
Mood: Like watching the creation of a mosaic in reverse. you start with these pieces arranged together beautifully, see them shattered and disassembled, and then understand their origin.
