Love it

Very moving and intense book to read about a love story. The way Elizabeth Sheridan shared her memories about jimmy and their relationship was amazing.

Oh Jimmy

Well, I read this in 24 hours, couldn't put it down. Pretty intense stuff. I cried .. more than once ..too beautiful really.And to the last reviewer up there ...Liz kept journals of her early days in NY, so she took a lot of the quotes and memories out of there. So ease up!This is the real James Dean.I think this is probably the warmest book about him to date.And you actually feel his energy and the times through her writing. It's a great world to get lost in for a while.

I Loved This Book !

I have always thought that Liz Sheridan was a classy lady and a fantasic actress, but this book brought me even more respect for her. I'll admit that a tough cookie like me bawled like a baby at the end of the book, not so much over the death of Dean, but over the aching sense of loss that this book brought. Being a huge Dean fan, I have often lamented the death of such a wonderful man, but this book brings it to a personal level. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, even if they are not a fan of James Dean, because everyone can relate to this story of love lost. Kudos to Liz Sheridan for sharing such a personal part of her life.

THE book for James Dean Fans

I received this book for Christmas and I absolutely love it. I've already read it twice since Christmas. This is the book for all the James Dean fans out there--young and old. Liz Sheridan writes about the James Dean that no one knew about except Sheridan and Dean. I must say that Sheridan does write about the TRUE James Dean without the limelight that is mentioned in the other books. Sheridan knew Dean for who he was on the inside, not because of his short career.This story goes by really fast for a love story; I couldn't even put it down! If you want to read one book about James Dean, this one tops them all.

unbelievable find

It's about time that someone told us a first-hand, personal, and honest account about the private character traits of James Dean. I couldn't imagine a better account, and to top it off, it was all believable. The story Ms. Sheridan told in this book was not only insightful about James Dean, but revealing about her own triumphs and tragedies. Through her writing, I have been able to better appreciate her dramatic contributions as well as Jimmy's. What a great tribute to one of the greatest actors of the past century!

What a wonderful book!!

I have been a James Dean fan for several years. I was excited to hear about the writing of this book. I liked this book for many reasons. First, it showed James Dean in a new light. It didn't focus on the rebel quality that so many other books do. It gave me a better insight as to what James Dean, the person, was like, rather than the actor. Secondly, it was a beautiful love story. I found the book easy to get caught up in, and hard to put down. I am so thankful that Dizzy shared her story with everyone!! I would recommend this book to all of James Dean's fans, and for anyone who enjoys a good love story!!
