Rhymes with Cupid indeed.

There should be balance, right? YA isn't all dark and twisted; it can be sweet and romantic too. But a certain balance is called for, right? This book tipped that balance toward the too sweet. And at times the silly.

It was basically one of those rom-coms that the protag made fun of:

"...I hated the whole 'boy meets girl, they fall in love but - oh- they can't possibly be together because of some terrible but really easy-to-resolve misunderstanding' plots that always ended happily ever after with a passionate kiss and/or wedding..."

I won't deny that there were moments of me stuffing the pillow over my head to keep from laughing out loud (i.e. the raccoon scene) But the book itself was just cute and funny BUT moments of it (mostly to do with Elyse's over the top reactions) really did rhyme with Cupid.

2.5 for making me laugh :)
