Carolyn I really really really wanted to like this book a lot more that I did. It felt so RUSHED to me, maybe I missed something but didn't Gemma and Max's courtship (for lack of a better word) happen over 3 weeks. And that whole time they were making out with each others supposed 'best friends' (ok more Gemma than Max, but still). I was left feeling as though I needed more character development. What happened when Gemma's mom spoke with her hundred year old Majorette Coach? Why didn't Gemma call Addison on her betrayal? Did Robert and Delilah get together in the end? And did Gemma change after she lost weight like she was accused of, or was it really the people she had relationships with reacting to her differently? What are Gemma's real feelings towards her father? I am glad that Gemma and Max end up together, that was the point of the book afterall. I have been left with a lot of unanswered questions though.
