-It didn't give off a good impression for teenage girls. The author made it seem like it was ok to have sex with your best friend and mess with people's feelings. Like it was no big deal because it'll all be fine and dandy in the end!
-I did NOT like the main character. She was way to naiive. She had it coming.
+I wanted to read a chick lit/young adult book and this cheesy book worked, I guess lol.

Interesting, but characters are lackluster, motivation is lacking, advice and situations change to much, the ending is way to contrived and nothing is really resolved. Note that content may not be suitable for many readers.

so okaay since the day I started reading pop, I can't help but reminisce about my own high school life way back then. I can say it's a fun read and I really did enjoy it. But I guess this is not an appropriate book for my age 'cos I find it shallow the plot and all. But youngsters out there would definitely enjoy reading it.

Some of these characters were annoying as was the insta-love. Also, she is supposed to be a senior i.e. moving on to college and young adulthood but for most of the book she acted like she was 13 and in junior high getting ready to start high school. Maybe if that had been the setting the book would have made more sense. At least this was an easy read.

Marit can't hold onto a boyfriend. Every time the relationship gets physical she freaks out and either scares the boy away or breaks up with him herself. She is afraid of having sex for the first time and obsesses about it. Besides the "no boyfriend" problem on the first day of school, she also has to deal with the fact that her schedule is terrible.

This book is actually pretty good. It makes you rethink a lot of questions you have about yourself. Getting through life is not as easy as it seems. You may find it okay to do something at first but you may regret doing it when you get yourself into a messy situation. It also makes u rethink the fact that, "a secret doesn't stay hidden for a long time" someday or the other it will reveal itself whether you like it or not. In POP, Marit is really freaked out about being a senior and still being a ...more

This book taught me all the things about being a teenage senior in high school, and the pressure of having sex. This is about a girl names Marit, and everytime it starts to get intimate with her partner, she seems to break up with them right away. So to fix this, she decides to have her first time with the person she trusts the most. Her best Guy friend, Jamie. From there she meets a boy she really does love, and thats all im telling :). GREAT STORY THOUGH :D

This is either the first or the second English novel I've read. I rated it based on what I could recall from foggy memory about its contents and the aftertaste. I remember it being too easy of a read and the story is practically a joke. The rating is not very objective to be honest, and subjectively I thank its lightness which encouraged me to finish the whole book when I just started learning English.

This book taught me that all subjects written about should definitely be RESEARCHED THOROUGHLY beforehand. Several references to mental disorders, made me, as a first year psych student wince. I couldn't even imagine someone with an actual problem reading this book. I found it offensive and question how it even got published.

Kind of a mix between The DUFF and Losing It. I wasn't sure who she would end up with at the end, though. Not crazy about how it ended. I guess I was routing for the wrong guy. Oh, well, at least it was all resolved.

Not sure when this book was published, but it seemed really outdate. I don't think the author connected with teenagers well through her characters and her actions.

I'm also not sure I really needed to know quite so much about there sex. The idea was good, but a little to much detail.

i read this book at night before going to sleep ..i bought it at a used book bookstore for a buck ..the cover was what drew me in to buy it..wish the ending was different though..recommend to teens that are pressured into having sex..or are in senior year of high school.

All in all I liked it because I'm very much into high school stories and it's easy to read. But this whole sex-without-love-thing and especially the ending made me so angry that i wanted to tear the book apart!

Recommends it for: lovers of trashy novels
Oh my god this book is so trashy but I just love it! Designed for the TRL crowd, and totally predictable, but there's something about it that's just fun. If you can handle teen angst, give it a go.
