I read this one for my Goodreads Reading challenge. I used it for task #44 - a book you are embarassed to read in public . As a grown woman, I take a lot of crap for reading YA books like this one.
This is the story of Phoebe, a bookish, band geek who likes to knit. She starts to fall for follow band geek, Dev, at the prompting of her best friend. The problem is ,they are both a little shy and Phoebe gets most of her advice from romance novels on how to behave around boys.
I read a lot of YA books. Mostly because I have two daughters and I like to read what they are reading or be able to recommed books they might like. But to be honest, I also enjoy the genre - usually.
This one was a bit much for me. There was too much going into the world of books - like a side conversation during the main part of the story. I get it, I think it may have been a useful plot tool, I just didn't enjoy it. I think this book is probably perfect for it's intended audiece - self conscious 13 year olds looking for reassurance that it's ok to be yourself. I gave it 2 stars.
