This story is written chronological order, Day one all the way to Day Twenty-One. Ms. Okeyo writes out a story told between two individuals who meet quite by luck at a restaurant, and who then get to know each other. The main characters, Zora and Jack, tell the story from their perspectives, moving from the shyness and jitters of the first meet in a relationship, to hurt emotions created by misunderstandings, and then the getting to know each other better. However, Jack keeps a huge secrets, that is subtly hinted at by Zora's friends. When it finally comes to light, it breaks them apart, but the reasons why Zora decides to call it quits have a lot to do with trust, and not secret itself.
This story rang true for me because of the experiences I've seen friends go through. When you're getting to know someone, it never is what he's done in the past, but whether he trusted you enough to tell you about that past. Giving you the chance to make your own choice, instead of making the choice for you, because of how you'll react or what you'll think. It was nice to read a relationship from such a perspective. Love can exist in different forms.
