Joli @ Actin' Up with Books - Such a perfect review for this book! I completely agree with you – Leveen’s writing is magnetic. I said the same thing in my review I’m writing (guess I’ll have to change that). But yes, this is a fantastic book. Leveen gets it right!

Alexa Y. - I will admit that I wasn’t initially very attracted to this book. But there’s something about the premise that hooked me, and I really think I want to read it. I’m glad that you enjoyed it so much!

Tabitha S. - This is a book that I probably would have skipped over before, but after reading yours and a few other reviews – I’ll definitely be giving it a chance now! I’m really interested in how the author deals with Tyler’s situation.

Renae @ Respiring Thoughts - This book first caught my attention because of the title—the manic pixie dream girl trope is such a unique thing to name your book after. I would probably be worried about the issue of cheating being portrayed in this novel, but if you say it’s not too big of an issue, then perhaps I ought to check in on this!
