It was a good book. Didn't know there were somebody meaner than Jessica.
After rethinking my original 3-star rating, I had to knock this down to a 2. Todd is such a jerk and Liz is more annoying than usual in this book!

After hearing them both complain about how love sucks, Todd and Elizabeth decide to set the two of them up and try to get them together, but it can't look like the

The plot's really cliche for me- two opposites falling in love and stuff. But I've got nothing to read so.
