In Book #1 we had Maddie and Colby and now in Book #2 In Every Way, we have Maddie's friend Bess and Colby's friend, Josh. Bess has always been a big girl and after a bully made fun of her in middle school and called her "Bess the Cow," she became so self-conscious of her weight and her looks. It's hard too as her grandmother loves her food and is biggish too. If only Bess had her grandmother's confidence in that "Big is Beautiful," she would realize that she is a stunning young woman. Summer is

It was a cute addition.

Not as good as In Plain Sight. It was weird to all of a sudden have a friend that knew Maddie before she moved and dyed her hair, since no one was ever mentioned...ever. I don't think it was necessary. All of the self shaming was hard to read. It makes me sad to think there are people who really feel that way about themselves. And it was super short again.

Must Read!

This book is everything a reader needs in a good romance. The characters are so cute and fun to follow. Not to mention there are some kick butt older women that give advice worth reading for (if not for anything else). I can’t express how much I loved this book and how it was adorable even in the sad parts.

(Bess and Josh):
Josh's Perfect Girl List:
1. Nice to other people
2. Pretty
3. Doesn't rely on me for fun
4. Isn't glued to her phone
Has less than 50% selfies on social media
6. No crazy ex-boyfriends
7. Won't flirt with my friends
8. Not a slob
9. Smart
10. A gut feeling

"That's my life floating through day by day on nothing but the daydream of possible amazing things."

"Bess hadn’t said where she works, just that it’s here. I’m going to find her by starting with the first shop and working my way dow
I liked the protagonists, but...

I think that Bess's issues with her perception of her weight are serious, and she probably needed more help with her self esteem than a makeover and a new boyfriend. I also feel like the story could have been longer, more fleshed out. Hopefully remaining books in the series will address some of these things. 3 stars.

Not the book to read at bedtime!!

I enjoy reading before bed, a chapter or two then off to dreamland. Didn't go as planned. Once again I was drawn into a world created by Amy Sparling. I was happy to see character from the previous book and i love the fact Amy dealt with weight issues and how girls feel about themselves. My only complaint is the abrupt ending. I'm hoping to find out more of what happens to Bess and Josh in the series.

I absolutely adore Josh! He is so great with Bess, they are adorable together! It was sad how down on herself Bess was but understandable when you are called something for so long it becomes a fact in your mind.

Kinda bummed

I was really getting into this book and then it felt like it just stopped. So many questions in the air. Loved the book but not a fan of the quick ending.

At first I was confused because Bess came out of nowhere as Maddie's friend, but I liked the Josh/Bess romance.

But honestly, what was with the ending? It just stopped mid-plot.

Very cute and quick read. :)
Cute series! I liked Bess a lot and enjoyed Josh's character as well. I enjoyed the writing and the story. It was fun and light hearted. Read both of the books in the series! ...more

I've never read Sparling's work before now, and I'm glad I started with this book. The description is what grabbed me. It sounded like a quick, light beach read of a romance. With summer winding down, the setting is something that definitely caught my eye, but there was more to the story that kept me reading.

I haven't read many books set in that in-between time after high school graduation and before college starts. It's a strange summer in limbo and a lot happens in an adolescence's life. I enj

Even more generic than the first volume in this series. Honestly, if Bess occurred as a character in that book at all I do not remember her. In fact, as I recall things (view spoiler)

Oh, and though I can't imagine you'll need it...(view spoiler) Yeah, YUUGGGE shocker there. Still and all, what the he

I enjoyed this boy

I enjoyed this book, I wished it would have gone Into more details of her insecurity with Josh however I really loved Bess character. And it seems like Josh was her Prince but again I want a little more romance and a little more of him helping her through the weight issue. So.hopefully there's another book coming that will give me all of this.
Overall a lovely read, didn't take me long to get through it. I look forward to reading more from Amy sparling

It's a cute story about a young chunky girl that falls for a handsome hunk named Josh. Bess is not the normal pretty skinny girl that parties and attends all cool party's that all young girls attend. When Bess and Josh officially meet due to a football incident Josh cannot stop thinking about Bess. Great story and hopefully all guys are a little more like Josh. ...more

I really enjoyed this book. The only had one problem. Even though I know she had weight issues. I thought it was too excessive in the beginning. Other than that it was a great book. I was happy to see an appearance of Maddie and Colby.

I think this book is a good book, because it teaches us no matter what we look like, there will be someone that likes you. You don't have to worry about how you look. Some people like you just the way you are. ...more
