Customer Reviews

Loved this author!

I can always expect great things from this author. Sure the stories are predicable but the characters are always fun and there is always wit involved. Short, fun read. Go for it!

It's ok

Not a bad story, just not great. There are a lot of errors in the book that are distracting. Wrong words are placed throughout and extra words inserted which make it a difficult read at times. Did not inspire me to read any future works by this author and I won't be reading this one again.


This was a short, feel-good story about love. The main character, Mel, is a character who struggles with issues that many girls face today and she is a character who is easy to relate to. This book wasn't an over-the-top love story; it was a simple tale of a young girls life and how it changed dramatically in a short period of time thanks to her best friend. Overall, it's a cute, heart-warming story.
