This takes me back to high school. It makes me laugh because when I read the review for this book, I could not believe i was into this kind of books (still am though) This book was so cheasy, and funny that even though it was clique was well, it hooks the reader.

I love the fact that the main character designed her own boards (I love drawing so i could relate).
And it's one of those books that compares one group of people to the other one. In this case skaters and rich people.

I loved the idea of the book. The description really pulled me in and I thought I would love it. It started out okay, but just went downhill from there. Something about Angie and Carter annoyed me and I could not wait for the book to end just so I could cross it off my list. Overall, it was an okay read, but I doubt I'll be recommending this to any of my friends. :/

Love & Sk8 was another book I read in high school and enjoyed it but looking back at it now, it's not the best. It's clearly a book for younger YA readers, while more experienced readers will find issues with it. The book does have it's weak points, especially the description doesn't do much to draw me in now. But it is a quick and easy read.

Not what I was expecting at all, I loved the ending. It was really wrapped up nicely. I dont know what about the book set me off, but it was just to similar to some of her other books and I guess if you read too many books of a similar style that everything becomes predictable.

This book was okay. It wasn't really the best book i've ever read, not by a long shot. I liked the general story, but I didn't like the way parts of it was written.

It's nothing exceptional, but if you're looking for a good way to pass the time (and a little sk8er-versus-preppie conflict cliche), Love & Sk8 is it.

Was a sweet story of two kids from the opposite sides of the train tracks falling in love. I like the fact that is was sort of the story of her child.
