This is, quite literally as the title says, a diary of a crush, a crush that’s probably very obsessive as Edie is completely immersed into it. 16-year-old Edie’s family has just moved to a new town. Edie finds her new classmates hard to know, but there are several who intrigue her most. One of them is Dylan, the hot but moody artist who’s the guy of every girl’s dreams. The other is Shona, Dylan’s best girl friend since childhood, a cool girl who’s got it all together.

Edie develops an epic crush-to-end-all-crushes on Dylan upon first sight. She chronicles in her diary the awkwardness of becoming friends with Dylan. This is the boy who grabs her and kisses her senseless one minute, then simmers and ignores her the next. When will she ever figure out what his feelings for her are? Perhaps a school art trip to Paris, the city of romance, will help reveal the truth.

This is a good book for those who liked Gossip Girls and the A-list. More serious readers, however, will find this book lacking in substance and style. Edie is a petty protagonist, way too obsessed with her crush in my opinion.
