Believable characters? Yes
Age-appropriate behaviors and issues? Yes & yes.
A lovely love story and self-discovery? Pretty much!
I think the above made this book. This isn't earth-shattering or deep stuff. It's just a good story that felt realistic. And I get where H/h land in the end, because I describe falling in love with the man I married as home too.
Cue up Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes...
