Told entirely through letters and text messages, this is the story of Tim, a high-school senior who sees the girl of his dreams while walking down the street. Ever persistent, Tim begins a letter-writing exchange with Amelie, and eventually he falls madly in love with her. Amelie, who is three years older, is at first annoyed and resistant to the idea of meeting Tim, but after his dogged pursuit, her resolve diminishes and she meets him face to face. This resonant story of young love is told through quick notes, take-out menus, postcards, letters, and text messages. The clever use of black-and-white photos, collages, and graphics adds to the teen appeal.   Contado enteramente a través de cartas y mensajes de texto, éste es el cuento de Till, un chico al punto de graduarse del colegio que ve a la chica de sus sueños caminando por la calle. Till empieza a escribir cartas a Amelie y pronto se enamora locamente. Amelie, que tiene tres años más que Till, se siente un poco molestada y resiste juntarse cara a cara, pero después de su búsqueda determinada, los dos se conocen personalmente. A partir de aquí empieza la historia de amor entre Till y Amelie, que está contada mediante e-mails, mensajes de texto, cartas, postales, tarjetas, páginas de libretas y portavasos. El uso de fotografía en blanco y negro, collages y gráficos aumenta el interés de lectores adolescentes.
