MY THOUGHTS

 
The writing is exceptional and the plot has a lot going for it...Two kids who are directionless but likable (they are all mostly directionless, anyway).  A sweet love story with a dubious break-up but maybe they can get it back, or maybe they can find a way to at least be friends...especially when a tragedy hits them.   The tragedy even has a bit of a mystery to it.  With all that it feels like it should be a winner.  But sadly, it was missing something.  For me, that something was an actual ending.  By leaving it the way she (the author) did...with considerably more than an open-ended ending...I feel bereft without some kind of closure.
