's review

it was ok

So, honestly, this book could have gotten such a higher rating.

Rosie is pretty. Like, really pretty. Guys notice her, and she likes that. In fact, she wants them to. And when her best friend comes back from a summer soccer program in Europe way hotter and more confident than she left, Rosie can even admit she has a moment of panic. Maybe she's not the hot one anymore? But it doesn't matter, because she's going to be a better friend this year, and that means making sure Maddie's long time crush, Rosie's current boyfriend, becomes suddenly available. Besides, she didn't really like him that much, and anyway, there's a new guy in town who's caught her eye. Summer is sure to be perfect, right?

Wrong. Because what could go wrong with that situation? Surprisingly, not what I thought, (view spoiler)

Anyway. The whole Alex/new guy in town plot line just. Could have been left out entirely, and that would have been fine. She did not need a new guy to fix her, she needed to be *less* focused on boys.

I don't know. How her situation was handled just left a very sour taste in my mouth. From her friends, from her school, etc. I don't know. I think the self-shame and hatred was very well done, but I also can't say I enjoyed it.

I think it would have been a lot better if it focused less on her pursuing Alex, and more on coming to terms with what actually happened.
