Life is a journey and unexpected things happen. There will always be exciting events that will be encountered through lives, along with a different variety of drama.

Cool like That, is a novel that shows New York through the eyes of a tourist. Gia, came to New York City because she was accepted into a summer enrichment program. A summer without parents and annoying siblings away from home is definitely going to be packed with lots of fun. Even better, Gia gets to go with her best guy-friend Rick

I am reading Cool Like Thatso far the book has been very good. I am on page 108. I am at the part where Gia goes to the statue of liberty with her freind Ricky. This book Is suspenful I don't want to tell you what happens next because I'm not that far in the book.I am exicted to see who Gia picks to be her boyfriend because It may not be ricky. I can not put this book down every page Is filled with high school humor!

I read "It's All Good", and being that this Author writes in series, I was curious to see were the story went after reading this book, well "Cool Like That" was the continuation. The book was good if you like girl meets boy, girl loses boy, and of course you get the drama that comes with it. Does girl get boy in the end? read it and see. It's a good teen book.

Only three people reviewed it! I hope that's not what I saw, because this book was so awesome. Some people may be turned off by all the slang used in there but that's why it's called "A so for real novel". I mean come on people, get it together!

I really enjoyed this whole series and I hope there is another book in the series. I want to see how senior year ends up for Gia and Ricky. I really really really hope there is another book in the series.

6/21/10 Start - Currently reading this book. Didn't realize it was a Teen book when I downloaded to my Kindle DX, but if it's FREE, it's for me if it fits into my reading interest.
