My thoughts...Mostly of us, with the exception of a very fortunate few, have been through a bad breakup. Frequently, the break-up is due to someone not being faithful, honest, or having respect for their significant other. So it is very easy to sympathize with the girls in the book, particularly Maddy, when they go after the source of their grief. The plot of this story was cute, predictable, but enjoyable. There is a hint of a blossoming romance, plenty of stuck-up girls, and heartbreak to satisfy fans of YA novels. For me, the best part of this story was the moral. I know, I know, "the moral", but it really sent a good message to readers.

I would recommend this book to younger YA readers. The recommendation on the book states ages 12 and up. The book is very age appropriate, so parents of young readers don't have to worry about bad language, sex scenes, or drug abuse (just a bit of smooching). It was a very quick read, I read it in less than 24 hours. This was however, not one of my favorite YA reads. The actions of the characters, while understandable, seemed a bit harsh. However, I did notice quite a bit a character growth by the end of the story.

There was a line from the story that stayed with me...
"I think most people want to do the right thing, they're just not presented with enough opportunities to do so."
