I read this book so long ago, but I remember loving it and reading it at least 3 times.

It's your classic YA fare with extra romance genre attributes. If Harlequin had a YA division (they might now, who knows...) I'm sure they would have published this. Silly but all together cute.
It was a really good book. I read it when I was in Middle School (97-99). A nice read for young adults and teenagers.
