Open Thy Heart
It’s summer in Shaver and, frankly, Dahlia Kennedy is bored. Even though she and Eva are throwing a party for David and she gets to visit Rowan in Ambrosia easier on account of summer hours, it seems like senior year is never going to come. Worse yet, it’s looking like the one thing she’s planned on doing for forever isn’t going to happen.

The characters were awesome, funny and generally superb (excluding the evil villains). And let us not forget the ending! Because the ending was just………………beautiful. *cries tears of regret at ending the book*

Just like in book one, I loved Dahlia's POV. It was fun, fresh, and real. She was a great character with a personality that I really enjoyed. Actually, I really liked most of the characters' personalities. They were easy to sense and just seemed to shine throughout ...more
I hadn't read the first book when I signed up for this book. I didn't even know this was the sequel. :/
Original Posting on Gaga Over Books:
Anyway, all the way through reading this book I wanted to read the first book. I think I will be doing that as I really enjoyed this one.
This book made sense even without reading the first as our memory was refreshed in the amusing voice of our protagonist Dahlia. I soo enjoyed reading from her perspective. ...more
