Beware spoilers ahead!

I can't exactly remember how I heard about this book. I'm pretty sure that I saw it pop up on GR. Once I read the synopsis I was sold! This sounded similar to Smart Girls Get What They Want so of course I wanted to read. When I started reading it I found out very quickly that this wasn't like Smart Girls Get What They Want but enjoyable nonetheless.

The book begins with Sadie walking down the hall to class. On the way she runs into Andy

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 2 months


I loved this book! It does have inappropriate subjects for younger readers.

My favorite character is Andy because he is a really sweet guy. He has an awesome family, is a pilot and "most likely to succeed," plus has been crushing on the same girl for 11.5 years.

My favorite part is when Sadie is dressed as a "horrifying

** I received an ARC copy in exchange of an honest review **

My Senior Year of Awesome is a Young Adult Contemporary Romance with hilarious, and lovely moments. A book that can catch you from the begging to the end. It’s written by Jennifer DiGiovanni and it’s going to be released tomorrow! By the way, I’m thankful for had the

**You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs:**My Senior Year of Awesome is a standalone young adult contemporary romance by Jennifer DiGiovanni. My Senior Year of Awesome is a really cute read about senior year superlatives and how they brought a couple together. Sadie was voted most likely to marry, along with Adam. Only problem is that superlative is usually reserved for a lovey dovey couple at the school, and Sadie and Adam have never even gone on a date. In f ...more

I read My Senior Year of Awesome by Jennifer DiGiovanni in less than six hours! I loved this book. It was a wonderful example of high school problems. I personally loved how this story unfolded, so many girls will relate to Sadie and Jana. Every one wants to make their senior year awesome and unforgettable and these girls did just that! They went from just flying under the radar to living it up, getting to know people, and putting their selves out there. I love the fact that Sadie finally got to ...more

Big thanks to Swoon Romance Publishing and Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours for an ARC copy of review.

Do you ever read a book that just makes you smile? Because this was that book for me and it left me with such happy feelings after finishing the last page. Filled with plenty of humor, wit, great friendships, and a unlikely cute romance, My Senior Year of Awesome is perfect for readers who enjoy young adult contemporary and, who will certainly find Sadie and Andy's story just as charming as I did.

So freaking fun! The biggest compliment I can give this book is that I kept saying to myself, "I'll just finish this chapter and then go do _____ and then _____." But whatever those things were, they did not get done, because I just kept reading. And chuckling. And thoroughly enjoying Sadie's world view with her lists and need to cram in every experience she could before graduating from high school. Great young adult romance! ...more

This is such an entertaining story, with charming characters, witty dialogue and fresh plot. Sadie and Jana want to end their high school years with a bang, and realize rather late into their senior year, they haven't really done much to leave their mark on Harmony High. Two self-described list-a-holics set out to complete the ultimate list of accomplishments before graduation.

Their attempts to letter in a sport, star in the school play, and break a school rule land them in amusing situations. A

This was such a sweet and fun book! It reminded me of school and I think a lot of young adults would both enjoy and relate to the story.

I think the thing I loved best about this book was that the characters made their own path. They didn't like that their peers voted them into something, so they took the reins and made their own way through their final year of school. It took guts, imagination and a strong bond of friendship tho create such a lasting and enjoyable time.

I liked that the story w

Rating: 10/10 stars

My Senior Year of Awesome is about a girl who gets voted "Most Likely to Get Married" with the school nerd/genius Andy. Sadie, along with her best friend Jana, attempts to do 10 Awesome Achievements for their blank list before they graduate high school.

DISCLAIMER: I got a free signed copy of this book from Jennifer DiGiovanni herself. In no way will that affect my review.

Honestly, this book was surprised me. I'm going to

I seriously considered not even finishing this book. The female, Sadie, was immature and not very likable.

The premise is that after attending school together for 11.5 years, Sadie and Andy are named as most likely to get married during senior superlatives. Because Andy annoys her and is the school genius, Sadie considers him an aggravation. Sadie really wants to go out with hunky Dominic.

Meanwhile, Sadie and her best friend, Jana, decide they must accomplish a list of achievements before graduat

This was a cute book, but I wish it was fleshed out more. The Cuban descent character was written a bit stereotypically and that kind of bothered me and the guy we are supposed to be rooting for can be a bit of an ass. He scares the main character at one point, causing her to injure her hamstring and he doesn't even make sure she is okay or apologizes which I thought was a mean thing to do to someone you clearly adore but other than that he seems like a character you can justify rooting for. I f ...more

A GREAT book by Jennifer DiGiovanni, if this was your first book then i am already looking forward to more of your contemporary romance novels! My Senior Year of Awesome had every thing in it teen romance, jokes which make your soul smile, heat warming scenes and most of all it was book that makes you want to also fall in love and have your own ten awesome achievement list. THIS BOOKS RECEIVES A TEN OUT OF TEN FROM ME!
