Read in January, 2010

Certain parts of this were really good and cute. I liked Hayden's relationship with her brother - it seemed realistic, and it added a nice other dimension to her character. There were good parts between Hayden and Nick that seemed real; parts that were funny and parts that were sexy. Overall, though, I was really frustrated by the characters. Nick is a jerk to Hayden without good reason, and someone close to the end of high school shouldn't still tease a girl because he likes her, as if he's stuck in that seventh grade situation. Hayden, in return, jumps to conclusions about everything and really does have a horrible temper (and not in a cute "I'm a hot tempered red-head" type of way; more like an "obnoxious and immature" type of way). I was rooting for Hayden and Nick, but both of them came as such idiots at times that at the end I was pretty sure they deserved each other (and not in a good way).

Jessica Yang Thank you so much!!! I gave this book one star. I really wanted to like it but I ended up downright hating it because Nick was such a jerk, and it annoyed me to no end that all he had to do was flip his stupid hair and she woud forgive everything he did. I really wanted a spectacular apology from him but this book (no offense) was shit. I completely agree with you and I don't understand how people enjoyed it.
