Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh this looks awesome! I’ve already been loving on the cover (!!!) but this is the first blog post I’ve read about this book. It sounds really fun! Thanks!

Lena - DAWSON’S CREEK! I’m totally reading this ASAP because of your Dawson’s Creek comparison. This looks like such a fun book, but I’m glad to hear it also has a very emotional spin to it as well. Awesomesauce.

Lori - You had me convinced with your very first line. 🙂 I really can’t wait to read this one. I need to read Tara’s other book too. I’ve heard great things about it.

VeganYANerds - This sounds fantastic and like a book a lot of us will relate to! I really enjoyed your review and you have me wondering about the outcomes for all the different plot lines!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Yay! I’m so glad you loved this! I picked it up at ALA as well, and I’ve been dying to read it. 🙂 Wonderful review!

elena - I used to confuse this with From What I Remember since they’re both books I wouldn’t normally pick up. I ended up really enjoying FWIR so I hope I’ll enjoy this one too! It sounds SO FUN and I do like the idea of a scavenger hunt. Also loove your Dawson’s Creek comparison, I’ve never watched the show (I know!) but it sounds so apt.

Kristen Evey - You had me hooked as soon as you said Pacey. 😉

Seriously though, this is a fantastic review. I feel like I need to go read this right now because you teased at a whole bunch of things and I want to know how it all works out. Does Patrick confess? What is Winter hiding? What will Mary choose?

Agh! I must know these answers! Also, I want to watch Dawson’s Creek again.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I am DYING to read this book because it sounds like so much fun! I’m a big fan of scavenger hunts. I used to set them up for my siblings all the time!
