Derek's clearly the love of Marisa's been waiting for, but there's only one problem: he has a girlfriend. Nash is clearly wrong for Marisa, but he's crushing on her. And, as if life wasn't complicated enough, Marisa's also contending with her best friend who won't stop falling for older guys, a family that's acting totally bizarre, and a secret crush on a guy whose identity is a mystery--even to her. Sophomore year is going to be intense.
I really liked this book! I thought it was super cute. Sometimes I felt like it was predictable, but it was funny and I felt like I could relate to the way Marisa thinks about situations. I wanted more when I was finished with it. I will definitely will be reading Susane Colasanti's other books!
Parents need to know that this book contains some kissing between couples, and a moderate amount of language. For the full content, go to Parental Book Reviews.
