I read this one last month, and it's not a favorite of mine, but it's still cute.


message 5: by Danique (new)

Danique I'm liking it so far! I like Emily and her awkwardness, I also like her little brother and I think Frank's a really nice guy, too.

Frank is one of my favorite YA guys! He's just adorkable. :)

Emily Shaw (emilyshaw16) | 313 comments Idk yet. I started it last month and just haven't read any since. I haven't gotten attached to it yet. I just like that I share the name of the main character :)


message 8: by Danique (new)

Danique Let me get back on what I said before. I'm 300 pages in and there isn't a character I don't like. They're all my favorites. Collins has really grown on me and I like Benji too, even though he hasn't really had a lot of 'screen-time' yet. Dawn is the cutest, too. I'm really curious about what will happen at the end of the list. This book is already one of my favorites!

I didn't get too attached either. It was good, but not nearly as great as everyone said it was. I was disappointed with the book.

Did any one finish? - I did!
Has anyone read this before? - me! meee! I did! :P

Emily Shaw (emilyshaw16) | 313 comments Okay. Once I forced myself to get to about 120 pages, I finished the rest in a day. It was cute and I did like the story. It was just difficult to get into it and took too long to get attached. I think that's the main problem with it. I don't understand how much hype it got though. It was cute, but won't be going to my favorites by any means.

That's how I felt too, Emily. It just felt really slow, especially when there was so much going on.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I saw so many BookTubers mention it as a favorite from last year and was so confused why haha.

I don't really watch BookTubers, but I saw glorious reviews on blogs last year. I even disappointed a few of my friends who loved it because I just don't get all the hype. It would have been better if it were just a bit shorter.
