Samuel Sanderson thought the idea of soulmates was absolutely insane, until he met the one. Sarah Tealgate was his best friend since seventh grade, but he was worried about ruining their friendship. He waited too long and was too late. Sam attempts to wait for her, but as years pass, the more he realizes that he may in fact be too late for having a soulmate, and that the idea in and of itself is ridiculous. As Sam tries to move on from Sarah, he constantly gets his heart broken, and continues to have feelings for her.

This book does feature some strong adult language and sexual content. I would say that it is okay for high school age and up, and is about the equivalence to John Green's Looking for Alaska. (Which I don't find offensive or inappropriate, but some do.)
The book follows a teenager from sixth grade all the way to sophomore year of college, so I would consider it a young adult novel. The language is used in a way to make the experiences quite accurate to the ones that I experienced throughout those years growing up. I just wanted to put that out there, so that people aren't caught off guard.
This book is extremely funny, it lets you feel the awkwardness of growing up, trying to fit in, the pain of losing someone close to you, and the emotions of falling in love for the first time.
