I only picked up this book because I read Shut Out before, and found it interesting enough. After reading it, I was pretty glad I did. This book touches on the basis of a girl who basically lost herself, and had to try to cope with a new situation for the summer to relocate herself. I would probably recommend this book for sixteen or up, as the romance and relationships do get very tense and detailed. The end was really nice to read, as it dove into some rough times with potentially some good knots. Thoroughly enjoyable! 5/5 stars

I really like the author's writing style. It's fresh and young, and sometimes I'm just sitting there reading trying not to burst out loud laughing. So that's always good. I wasn't a huge fan of the storyline - kind of weird to be in love with your actual stepbrother...that would be totally awkward. But it was funny and a good book.

I expected so much more from a Keplinger book, SPOILERRRRRRRRRRRR and the highlight of the whole book was when Wesley and Bianca appeared. I wished there were more scenes when they appeared like that because they're honestly the cutest thing. I found Whit really annoying most of the time, and Nate was really cute and patient, but the whole stepbrother-sister concept is only cute if the parents DONT end up together. Otherwise, it's pretty strange to have a relationship with your step sibling.

This book was fantastic, just like Kody Keplinger's other books, The Duff and Shut Out! Kody Keplinger has become one of my favorite authors. Since she's still pretty young herself (she's about college age), she knows how to write from a teenage girl's point of view, as compared to a 40 year old woman trying to write like a teenager. Her characters and their family and friends are just so relatable and real. There is plenty of swearing and sexual stuff in this book, so I wouldn't recommend this for anyone younger than high school age, but again, that stuff happens in high school (and younger) all the time, so it just makes this book more real. Even though Whitley's morals start out pretty low at the beginning, she learns the error of her ways, so there's a good life lesson in here. I also love how all of Kody Keplinger's books have a deeper meaning in them, and the main character learns her lesson by the end. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book (and The Duff and Shut Out) to older teenage girls who are looking for something fun yet meaningful to read. Enjoy!

Basically Whitley's (not whit "If her parents wanted her to be called whit they would have put that on her Birth certificate instead of WHITLEY") life is a mess and it gets crappier by the moment, I mean she does a few things she may..... kind of..... regret doing because now the judgement is even worst for her, so how is she going to get out of this one? Read man Its a good book and I'm bored so sorry that what I thought of the summary was crappy! xD
