Author’s Summary: 'Beautiful. She called him beautiful.' - The after effects as Jess feels it.
Why This Must Be Read: This story takes what I first adored about the Gilmore Girls and runs with it: the complete and utter love of BOOKS and READING. It’s early in the series and I would have loved to see things play out on the show like they do here. Rory is young and open and Jess is bitter and vulnerable and they make these incredible connections while discussing books. It makes me feel like I’m a teenager again discovering ~feelings~. All of the other Stars Hollow characters, including Lorelai and Luke, are spot on with some great moments with Lane.
