Not usually my sort of read but it was recommended by a lady in my library and I'm glad tat I paid attention. I loved this book and could not but it down, now Shakespeare it isn't and it is very predictable. But what it is is an enjoyable page turner that tells the story from the girl and the boys POV which is entertaining. I liked the characters, setting and conversations where all funny and real. Defiantly one for the beach come summer.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's a really nice read, predictable bur nice. You couldn't help but want to shake Joss in some parts but then feel sorry for her in the very next sentence. The way the chapters were of each persons point of view of the same time made you care for the characters more. I particularly enjoyed seeing city names like Leeds and Sheffield in there, being from Hull it very much reminded me of home.
