Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I was that girl in high school too – the booklover, the one who was determined to make something of herself and found a way to do that through her grades. This book sounds pretty fun and I hope I get the chance to read it!

Tara - I was so that girl in high school too! I graduated with a class of 73 people and I knew I had to get good grades to be able to move on. I’m glad to hear the book picks up after the slow start and props to you for sticking it out!

Kate @ Musings - I love Sarah Strohmeyer! When I saw hat she came out with this book, I wanted to read it. I think I will still give it a try, and wish that my girls would read it, I am sure. Sad to hear that the first 130 pages were slow…not a great way to hook young ladies – but maybe the smart ones will stick with it and get a good lesson from it!

elena - Love the point you made about two types of YA books because that’s so true. I’m glad that even though this book had a rocky start, you ended up enjoying it by the end. Overall, it sounds like a cute story!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Sounds cute! I love Christmas books. 🙂 I know what you mean, though, about feeling too old to be reading a book. I’ve had that happen before. I can always allow excess fluff in a Christmas book. I might grab the one paired with Ex Games if it comes out on Kindle. No room for books right now! 🙂
