This was a good read. Likeable characters and an interesting plot. I'm always buzzing for budding relationships and Jade and Luke had me smiling whenever they were together. The relationship felt authentic with just the right amount of awkwardness. I especially liked the fact that it wasn't corny and over the top, which I often see in young adult fiction.

There was a huge twist I didn't see coming involving Luke, which I won't give away, and although it did surprise me, I didn't take well to it. I would have preferred it not to have ended the way it had, but that's just my opinion. Overall, a worthwhile read.

Liz Fichera I may have to read this book based on the title alone! This story sounds adorable.
