Hannah is your average girl with no so average parents. Her father lives in a playboy type of mansion surrounded by playgirls (but they're called something else in this book). He hasn't talked to Hannah in a number of years and she would like to keep it that way. Her mother runs a site where she chats with men in her underwear and her husband died a bit recently. Not to mention that they live in a small town and everyone knows who her parents are. That's gotta be tough. She works at BurgerTown with the boy she's swooning over, Josh and her annoying friend Finn.

I read a review somewhere where someone complained that this book was repetitive and boring. I agree, the book is repetitive but you have to remember, Hannah is in high school. She works and goes to school... there isn't much excitement when you're living that life. I kind of liked the repetitive, I was constantly looking forward for school to be over and for her to go to work since that's where most of the entertainment happens!

The thing I like most about Elizabeth Scott's books is that you feel like you're the character. The way it's written makes you feel like Hannah's thoughts are your thoughts. You feel her anxiety with her, her excitement, her emotions. I wasn't too crazy about Josh every time he was in a scene, but I did love Finn's character. I loved how simple and observant he was and how he'd always butt in Hannah and Josh's conversations! I loved the relationship between Hannah and her mom, it seems that a lot of Elizabeth Scott books have that strong mother-daughter bond thing going. I also loved Hannah's sense of humor, if she were a real person, I'd make an effort to be her best friend!

This was a nice, cute and relaxing read. Perfect for summer!
