    One thought on “At First Sight”

    1. Oh my gosh! This was my favorite book when I was in junior high!! I admit I still read it like once a year for old times sake :)

    2. December 2014: I really enjoy rereading this during Christmastime._____________________Originally posted here.I love rereading this book during the holidays because it's a fun read and it's set at Christmastime. Allie has spent most of her school years at Fields School, a boarding school exclusively for girls in Maryland. Her parents travel all over the world for her dad's job so the kids were sent to boarding school for some stability. Once Allie's parents decided to settle in one place for goo [...]

    3. If you're ever going to read just ONE teen romance in your lifetime, read this book! I've read this book over and over and over for about 10 years now and it doesn't matter whether you're a teenager or a teen at heart, you're going to fall in love with the characters in this story! I love Allie, Timmy and Ben! For a short book, I felt like the characters were fully fleshed out. There are no throwaway chapters, every single one counts in building the characters, conflicts and plot so you can get [...]

    4. I had way too much trouble while reading this book. First of all, I stopped several times in between and forgot about it because I was completely immersed in fanfiction. (I love fanfiction. :D) As a result, I had to pick it up again and try to remember where I was and exactly what was going on. The other thing is that the characters seem sort of two-dimensional, the plot is underdeveloped, and the writing is very very simple. I think once you've read one of the "Love Stories" books, you've read [...]

    5. I basically read this in a few hours. I'm pretty sure I read it when I was younger too. I purchased this book last year at my first ever Books By the Pound location while on vacation to see my Aunt in Georgia. I didn't mind the story line and the characters were nice enough but I really wasn't feeling connected to the romantic relationships in this story. Also, it doesn't really start to get good till the very end and then it's over too quickly when other books in this series are WAY better.

    6. I could not love this book more. I read it once every year for over 5 years now. I love it so much. I really recommend it.

    7. This is one of my favorite books of all time! I think I have read this book at least 4 times. Allie is a girl who has gone to boarding school her whole life. She is a girl that plays all the sports and is a typical tomboy type. She has two gorgeous twin sisters that know all the ploys to get all the guys. On her way back to her parents for the Christmas holidays she bumps into a hot guy who just so happens to be going to see his father in the same town that her parents recently moved too. I love [...]

    9. Giáng sinh hoặc Giao thừa năm nào cũng nằm đọc lại cuốn này.Truyện rất thích hợp với các em tuổi "teen", thế mà lần nào đọc lại dù đã không còn teen mà mình vẫn thích :D Trong bộ Love stories gồm 6 cuốn đã xuất bản mới đọc được 5 cuốn thì cuốn này vẫn là thích nhất :D

    10. “At First Sight” is about a girl name Allie Parker who is looking to find herself. Allie wishes she can be as gorgeous as her twin sisters. Until, she meets a guy name Ben. Ben doesn’t know who her sisters are but once he finds out, nothing changes. I recommend this book to people who like to read romance. I really enjoyed this book.

    11. This is a great book. Most people would classify this as a romance, but i don't agree. It's the classic teen story, the one where two people are insanely in love with the other, but neither thinks the other loves them back. Kind of pathetic, i think. But it was an overall good book.

    12. I read this book when I was maybe 12. LOVED IT! I actually own it - the only book of it's kind that I owned for a long time and I would hide it so my brothers wouldn't find it. If that is not the DEFINITION of a guilty pleasure, I don't know what is.

    13. I love this book! I can't tell you how many times I've read it. It's short and sweet. It's a classic love story. I love all of the books in this series! Read it!

    14. I just loved this book when I was young. It is a great romance, well written, awesome characters. Cheesy in such a good way!

    15. okay - i might read againI recently re-read this book. I loved it when I was in high school, but the appeal has faded for me. It's a little cheezy and the teens are a litttle silly.

    16. Another favorite cheesy teen romance.I was a bit annoyed by how soap opera the drama felt but it was a lovely read either way.Perfect way to end a hard day.
