  1. Another amazing Sarah Dessen book. Once I picked up this book I couldn’t stop reading it. Therefore I finished it too quickly! I hate when that happens! I really liked the characters in this, and I absolutely loved the fact that she mentioned a few characters and places from her other book. The characters in this were great. I liked how she kinda went away from her perfect kinda guy character. The main guy character had some problems and that made him cool. All in all. Great story, but not a printz winner =(

  2. This book was quite fun. I read it in just a few hours which is a testament to how much I was enjoying it considering the length. The characters were great, but I wished some of them had been in the story more. Overall it was well written and enjoyable, but like Nicole said, no an award winner.
