This was a quick, fun coming-of-age read. I got through it very quickly and enjoyed it. I wouldn't say there is anything original or special about it. Actually, I would probably call it "just another fluff" read.

That being said, there is nothing about it that should make you not want to read it. Just because it doesn't stand out doesn't mean it doesn't tell a good story. I love how Teresa starts out as being so shy she can barely walk through the hallways at school to owning herself and being a radio DJ. It is a little unbelievable, but it still makes for a good story.

We don't really learn a lot about Gavin and who he is, but he and Teresa have good chemistry. Maybe its good we never really find out anything about him: he remains a man of mystery.

Anyway, seeing Teresa's transformation over the course of the story is fun to read, and even though the book doesn't bring anything new to the table, it is a fun read!
