Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

A sweet, clever romance set around the turn of the 21st century. It’s easy to see how Lincoln could fall in love with Beth via her e-mails to her best friend: I kinda wanted her to be my best friend, too, by the end of the book (pax, Jon, I know I already have the best bff ever.) The only thing that didn’t ring true for me was the scene in the movie theater towards the end and, to a lesser extent, the scene after that by the vending machines; kinda odd that I enjoyed so much of Beth and Lincoln apart, but not necessarily when they shared the page together. Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable and wittily constructed, if not outstanding, novel.
