So this is the third Susane Colasanti book I’ve read (When It Happens and Waiting For You were the first two I’ve read) and I just love her writing style! It’s so clear-cut and simple. Very easy to understand but her books are always full of great quotes! All her stories also make you put the book down and think for a little bit because they have very deep messages. I usually get a little teary-eyed at the end of them too because they’re so good!
In this book a couple of things did annoy me, unfortunately. The slang that the kids used was so outdated and did not fit with modern day and I thought at first it was because of the year the book was written but when I checked the publication date it said 2009! That was not that long ago! I’m sure as a teenager I NEVER used some of the things they said.
At first I also didn’t like how she changed the perspectives simply because I didn’t notice it in the beginning of the chapter (it was sort of hidden in the graphics) so that kind of confused me. I have to admit though I did like the multiple perspectives and the fact that the font changed for the three different characters who were telling the story.
The story and plot itself was really cute and like I said before, very deep. Some things were unclear at first but as I read from other people’s perspectives some things became clearer.
Out of all of Susane Colasanti’s books this one was had the most like real life issues. The other’s were like love stories but this involved scarier/deeper issues which I actually really liked. It was different in a good way! I would definitely give this a Paige-Turn!
Hope you enjoyed!

P.S. I’m re-reading the first Gossip Girl (I have the second and third one’s and I read the first awhile ago) so I’ll get through that really quick. I’ll have a review up for that soon and then I’ll move on to the next books! See you soon!
