Actually, 2.5/5 stars. One of the worst of the series, although still eminently readable. Mia is at her most neurotic over the simplest of problems in this one. Often Mia's reticence to solve an issue is relatable to that time when you were a teenage girl and small things seemed like EARTH SHATTERING issues, but obviously Michael is not a fling and it makes Mia seem so much weaker-willed than she was in previous books to have her freaking out over whether Michael Moscovitz (seriously one of the most awesome boyfriends in the YA genre) loves her platonically or is "in love" with her. This questioning makes Mia seem idiotic at best and crazy at worst, but also takes away any backbone she had gained in the previous books with the addition of her inability to ask her serious boyfriend up front whether or not he is actually in love with her. Very lame premise for the book. It's saving grace is that Meg Cabot is an entertaining writer who understands teenage girls. Also, that Jane Eyre is pimped.
