    " The author did such a good job of disguising the love interest that I just wasn't that interested and liked others better. Ok , but certainly not a reread. "

    " I picked up this book just to read because nothing else looked good, and I ended up loving it. It was funny, heart-wrenching, and made you go "Awwww" at some points. I definitely recommend it more for girls, because it's mostly about love. If you love chick-lit, go read this book right now. "

    " This book is good for teenagers, like me. I enjoyed reading it and it made me think about life. Belly is the image of girls who think they aren't pretty enough for the boy they like. This is a great book! I'm currently reading its sequel and I am loving it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 11/29/2011

    " I thought it was going to be a total fluff book and it did have a lot of fluff... But it had a serious side too. Not pure candy reading. "

    " this book was a very cute story and had a beautiful setting. it had some romace which was a great addition to the plot. i definitely reccomend it. it is more of a book written for 13 or older...it just has some of those "teeks" that younger kids might not catch or understand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 5/19/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 5/18/2011

    " Silly nonsense of a book, but to the author's credit, I am a grown woman reading a very ya book for some relaxing reading for a change. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brent | 5/17/2011

    " I'm so conflicted over this book. The summer-romance-lover in me absolutely adored this story. But the intern in me made me look at the characters critically and see all the flaws. I have absolutely no clue how to rate it.
