it was ok
bookshelves: chick-lit

I don't know why I continue to read their books (so far, I've only liked Nanny Diaries). This one is about a girl whose high school sweetheart turns into a major rock star and returns to her hometown to try to rekindle their romance - can we say cliche?! I hate the authors' style of writing - It's so confusing and I had to read and re-read several sentences, which is a waste of time for a book that's meant to be a fast read. I think they're trying to make the conversations between the characters seem real, but I feel like the reader was never part of their inside joke.

The book started off cute, especially the high school parts, which seemed realistic. The adult sections of the book were so overly dramatic and insanely unreal, and I didn't feel like I could respect the main character who is supposed to be smart and grounded.

I gave it two stars because atleast the book was moving along and the format (changing back and forth from high school to adult life) was interesting. Overall, not worth the read!
