So this book was not AT ALL what I had expected, and to be honest, I kind of wish the summary went into a little more detail. I had hoped the book would be a cute fluffy read about high schoolers. Without spoiling anything, it is not at all like that. Josh's "issue" was so far from what I had expected, and having zero experience with that kind of situation, it made me feel disconnected from the book in a way. If I had known the twists this book would tke, I probably would've skipped it. Oh and ...more

Really loved this one. I liked how both characters realize things about each other while hanging out together, and while somehow this was advertized as a romance novel (it isn't quite, unless you count unrequited love as romance?) and hence this wasn't quite what I had expected it to be, I found that I enjoyed the story much more than I probably would have if this *had* been just a simple teenage romance.

I didn't really know what to expect from this book and it still led me to some unexpected places. It plays on a lot of the tropes one expects from a YA novel...but it takes them in a different place. There's a makeover, a school election, coming of age, a move, lots of lies, and some very realistically portrayed adolescent problems. Smart and highly recommended.

This was a cute book. I liked how each chapter told the story from either Josh or Becky's point of view. The ending seemed to just wrap everything up in a nice little bow so it was a little unrealistic, but it was still an enjoyable read.

I felt cheated at first..I had to read the revelation thrice just to make sure that it's not the stress taking over. I did not see it coming!!But well, I still love how it turned out so yes, 4 stars for this.

liked having the chapters alternate narrators between the 2 main characters ...gave insight into both of their points of view on the same situations...very easy read ..there definitely was a twist ...

Was a fast moving read. I cared about the characters, but not all of them to have it end the way it did...wished there was a bit more development in some areas.
