I really, really loved this. I could totally relate to Taylor's shyness and her deelings of not fitting in. And could sympathize with Alex's feelings of guilt. Both for the Quinn's dealth and for messing around with his best friend's sister. I loved how he treated her so beautifully, aside from hos bonehead stubbornness,which had nothing to do with Taylor and everything to do with him.
I also liked the relationships forged with his brother and sister and how the friendship grew between Taylor and Vienna.
