You're reading from Sang's point of view and because C.L. Stone is such a fantastic author, you feel exactly how Sang feels.

Dude, I'm 31 and crushing way too hard on Kota and Nathan. I just pretend I'm 16 and call it good.

It also helps to think that they act a good deal older than they actually "are" (as well as the fact that the way CL describes them makes me picture them quite a bit older as well) I think of it in the same way as I do watching tv shows about high school. The actors are playing 16 year-olds, but most of the time their at least in their early twenties and sometimes in their late twenties to early thirties, and that's kinda how I feel about it. Granted, I'm only 18, so Sean and Owen would still be older than me, but I've always been one to go for older guys rather than younger (not too much older but you know what I mean), so imagining dating a 16 year old is weird to me, especially because most of the 16 year-olds I know are actually quite immature and NOTHING like any of the boys. So in my mind, they're not REALLY 16, I guess, I'm not sure if that makes sense, but oh well?

Didn't we all (LOL), but I think that's true no matter what age we are. I was sure I was grown up at 10. And when I turned 15 and told my mom that she was old she asked me at what age did someone become old. I really did think about it and said 30. Boy did she have fun on my 30th birthday. Age is very relative and I don't think any of us ever think we are immature or say to ourselves, I'm too young for that or to understand that.

I also remember the first day of my senior year looking over at the freshmen getting off the bus. I remember thinking, "They're little kids! I was never that young when I came to high school." A few years in the teens do make such a big difference.

I definitely relate to this! I'm 33 and sometimes it creeps me out my attraction to these 16 year olds! I do believe like others have mentioned that the guys behave like they are on their 20s and the fact that many of them are not virgins adds to the equation. Also Owen in my head is at least 30 so that helps hehe ^_^

I think Owen is 30 in his head too.
