Actual rating: 4.5 stars

Initial thoughts: The Way You Make Me Feel made me burst out laughing on several occasions. Clara has the most ridiculous ideas that put her in hot waters but she also a lot of heart. I loved the father-daughter relationship. I also enjoyed seeing how Clara changes over the summer, and how that affects her world views, her friendship and also her approach to romance.

This is Maurene Goo's third novel and I'm impressed by how far she's come. In her previous books, I thought that the secondary characters weren't developed enough. In The Way You Make Me Feel, I felt as though her characters were leaping off the pages because they each have a great deal of depth. Rose and Hamlet in particular are absolute darlings.

The ending is a little too condensed, in my opinion, but otherwise the pacing and plot are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for a dash of summer fun.
