's review

really liked it

I'M HERE FOR A FULL CAST OF POC!!!!!! It was so amazing to read a book where one was white? Such a change from most books where everrrryone is white (rolls eyes). I also really liked that both the MC and love interest (Chloe and Eli) wanted to follow non-academic paths - college is pushed so hard at high school students but it's not! the only! path! It was funny also to read about them living in New Jersey and roadtripping down to DC and Virginia and NC, since I live in NJ and have done that trip (minus NC) lol. I loved their interactions, and honestly the full cast of characters. I wanted more of Chloe's best friend, and of Eli's sister. Oh another thing I liked - it dealt with difficult relationships between parents and children, and how nothing is ever magically solved but it's something you have to work at. All in all, a really great read! Looking forward to future books by this author.
