MY OPINION: *****

This is going to be a short review because it was a short book. Well, a short review for me.

I read this book in one night (two hours) and loved it all through and through. I didn't even have time to update my Goodreads account while reading this book. That's how fast I read it.

This book is definitely one of my most favorite books of all time. Better than Fangirl. That good.

I loved Lily as a character and if she was a real person, I would definitely be friends with her. She's so awkward and different, and that makes her stand out. She's special.

Cade was definitely my favorite character. Even when he was a jerk. Even when he said rude things. I liked him. He reminded me of Keefe from the Keeper of the Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger. Funny and idiotic.

Jonah was so CUTE. I wish he was real! He had the cutest sayings and I really liked the fact that Jonah and Lily had a great sibling relationship. They seem like they would fight, but that definitely wasn't the case, even when Lily was blaming Jonah for something he didn't do.

I liked how this book had a great musical theme, even though I didn't know the musical references. I hope Lily won the contest.

Sasha was literally the definition of an evil character. What kind of person does that? Was exploiting Lily's work her form of betrayal, revenge, or anger? Like, she literally was so mean and she didn't even get in trouble for it! I hated Sasha. As a person. She was really well-drawn though, in a writing point of view.

Cade was Lily's letter-writer. I saw that from FAR AWAY. I mean, I literally knew by the first message. Who else had that same experience?

This book was literally predictable. But I think that despite its being very easy to guess, I think that reading how we get there was definitely worth it.

You should read this book! I mean, think about this. This book brought back my love of realistic fiction and contemporary novels. I am definitely reading more of Kasie West's work.

Lastly, my favorite scene was definitely the Thanksgiving scene, although I liked the hotel chairs closet scene as well. That was funny and interesting to read. Or maybe the scene where Lily asks her crush out. I literally laughed there. If only that happened in real life...

Isabel was such an awesome friend. I mean, she was definitely picture-perfect.

I loved how the teacher, Mr. Ortega was drawn up to be so boring. But the mean thing was, he literally took away personal property from a student. What kind of a teacher does that?

Ashley sounds like an incredible older sister. Mark was funny.

I would recommend this book to romance and contemporary lovers.

Main Character: Lily
Sidekick(s): Isabel, Cade, Jonah, Wyatt, Ashley, etc
Villain(s): Cade (in a way), Sasha, etc
Realistic Fiction/Romance Elements: All of this could happen in real life, though it does not mean that it will. This book featured a romance.

  1. I haven't read anything from Kasie West but I'm planing to as a break from scifi/fantasy novels I read all the time. The book seems fun :D
