2.5-3 stars. This just didn't really work for me. It felt like I was being told their feelings more than being shown that they felt that way, so I never really bought the transition to genuine feelings, especially on Melissa's part. And I didn't buy her dad changing like he did, and I also didn't feel like Lance was considerate enough of why she wouldn't want to tell her dad about them. I also wanted the prank war to last longer, because it wasn't even really a war, it was more like she did one thing, and then that was it. idk, I feel like there was a lot of potential here, and I loved that it was set in the Philippines, but it didn't come together for me in the end, and the writing style didn't really work for me.
