Yes, this book is classified as Chick-Lit but it is so much more then that. The cover might suggest that this would be your typical chick-lit seeming a bit over the top and super-girly, but thats not the case at all.
First of all, I enjoyed both of the main characters!! The bad-boy celebrity of Jason, and the ' not wanting to be in the spotlight' girl next door of Chloe. I loved the push-pull of the relationship between the two of them. The love triangle that ensues in this story is the best kind, meaning you yourself don't know who the character should pick, because they both have so many endearing qualities.
I loved that the author kept Chloe's character so real, and didn't have her be star-struck and obsessed with Jason, because I feel like that would have totally changed the whole book, and made it more of the typical chick-lit that many people don't seem to enjoy. I like that although he was a "huge" celebrity, Chloe didn't really know who he was, and when she did, she didn't fully care.
I believe there is a second book in this series, and I can't wait to see where Emily Tippetts brings this story next, I really enjoyed her writing style, and if your a fan of chick/lit or romance or even if your not, I think you would really enjoy this book. ...more

I'm going to be honest anI was lucky enough to win a signed copy of When you Were Here by: Daisy Whitney and I was so happy to read something by her. I'm going to be honest and say that the whole way through the book I was thinking it was going to probably be a three star read, not because the story was bad at all by any means but because I was waiting for something to really hit home for me, and HOLY GOD the last 80 pages freaking broke my heart, that was exactly what I needed to bring it right up to a 5-star rating, and to become one of my favorite reads of the summer.
Losing a parent is always a sad and emotional subject esp. when the character losing the parent is a teenager, but I loved how real this book felt, and I loved the air of mystery it had with Danny trying to figure out his mom's other life she led in Tokoyo. I didn't know if I was going to love the setting of the story either, but I found that I loved Whitney's writing and the setting could have been anywhere and I think the story still would have packed the same punch.
I'm thankful that Daisy Whitney also sent me a signed copy of The Mockingbirds, which was just an extra gift from her (because she's awesome, not because I actually won it.) But I can't wait to read more from her!! I loved her writing, and loved how I felt one way through the whole book, and within the last 80 pages totally changed my perspective on the whole story, I don't know about ya'll, but that dosen't happen very often for me. If the Mockingbird is anything like book as far as writing style goes, i'm sure I will love it....more
