Read Me Like a Book reminded me a bit of Looking for Alibrandi in tone. Ashleigh’s self-absorbed in a truly teen way, and she makes a lot of bad decisions. There’s a lot to like here, but the book is burdened by poor writing.

The characterization is decent, but not great. It’s a fairly plotless contemporary, but I found it a pretty quick read, especially while my other reads were big and dense. I did like the handling of the f/f teacher/student relationship, something I was worried about. (view spoiler) The strongest relationship in the novel actually proved to be that of Ashleigh and her mother, rather than any sort of romantic relationship.

I liked Read Me Like a Book, but, for the most part, it’s mediocre and forgettable. It’s perhaps worth reading for the fact that it’s the only f/f teacher/student book out there, but I’m not sure if that’s enough. *shrugs*
