I was looking for a good contemporary and picked this book up on a whim one day shopping at Target. I am really glad that I did. This book was great. It really delivered on romance, troubles/problems, friendship and family in the lives of young adults. The pace for this book was fast and I actually was able to finish this one in a day. I loved the witty remarks and banter between the main players and found myself relating to a lot of the situations discussed in this novel.

However, with all YA novels there is always some situations that the characters get into or things that they say that make you say "WHY? JUST DON'T!!". And of course then you roll your eyes. There were times that I did do this with that book but overall I still liked it and thought the author did a nice job. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice contemporary book.

Sure an amazing Y/A contemporary novel. Good story about a young teen trying to figure out what she truly wants and how she wants to be looked at. I truly enjoyed this book and related to it so much and that what i love about books is when you can connect
