    I don t often dislike books but this one I truly had a difficult time completing I started skimming through this book towards the middle of the book when I realized it was not getting any better I didn t want to just abandon it as I ve never ever abandoned a book before so I skimmed it all the way to the end It was just really sad that I found this book boring and insignificant I didn t find any of the characters appealing or interesting enough to follow their stories I just didn t connect I don t often dislike books but this one I truly had a difficult time completing I started skimming through this book towards the middle of the book when I realized it was not getting any better I didn t want to just abandon it as I ve never ever abandoned...

    This is one of the greatest YA fiction novels I have ever read I went into it with skeptism because the person who recommended the book to me loves stories where one of the lovers in a relationship dies at the end and I hate those sorts of stories This was a lotthan a story about summer love In fact, I guess it is nothing about that It s about love in general between family, friends, and your soul mate It s about finding and completing yourself not by someone else, but in yourself This is one of the greatest YA fiction novels I have ever read I went into it with skeptism because the person who recommended the book to me loves stories where one of the lovers in a relationship dies at the end and I hate those sorts of stories This was a lotthan a story about summer love In fact, I guess it is nothing about that It s about love in general between family, friends, and your soul mate It s about finding and completing yourself not by someone else, but in yourself Al...

    I was on the line about whether to add this book to the enjoyably bad shelf, since I couldn t decide if it was actually bad. Cheesy, fluffy, and overly quirky, sure, but bad Well, I m on disc 5 now, and I ve decided It is bad Still enjoyable, though What s best about this book dead on portrayal of bad love The teenage main character and her mother each have a dumbass bad boy in their life that they can t seem to quit The magnetism and idiocy of the boys and the addictive results of that I was on the line about whether to add this book to the enjoyably bad shelf, since I couldn t decide if it was actually bad.

    Once again Caletti has created a vividly adventurous and humorous home spun coming of age story My first Caletti novel was The Secret Life of Prince Charming and oh the characters It s the same with Honey, Baby, Sweetheart The characters are jewelsand the story is so familiar yet so enjoyable.Ruby McQueen doesn t hang out with boys She s a good girl, has one girlfriend, a love sick insecure librarian mother, a little brother, and a chewing machine of a dog Typical family, typical girl Once again Caletti has created a vividly adventurous and humorous home spun coming of age story My first Caletti novel was The Secret Life of Prince Charming and oh the characters It s the same with Honey, Baby, Sweetheart The characters are jewelsand the story is so familiar yet so enjoyable.Ruby McQueen doesn t hang out with boys She s a good girl, has one girlfriend, a love sick insecure librarian mother, a little brother, and a chewing machine of a dog Typical family, typical girl falls for the bad boy next door Or is it I love how Caletti takes a stereotype plot like this and whips it around into a heartwarming story about something completely different something that makes you sad when the last page turns Ruby was naturally a keep to yourself type When she suddenly catches the eye of the motorcyle ridin bad boy, Travis, Ruby unleashes her alter ego that has been ...

    I have mixed feelings about my first Deb Caletti read.I loved the idea of this book the Quiet Girl and the rich, wild boy and one summer where everything goes a little crazy.I also loved portions of the prose Every now and then a sentence paragraph sentiment would just be perfectly captured you could highlight this little book like crazy with all those hidden gems.Unfortunately, those gems do get hidden drowning in often over written passages If I were to edit this book I would pare it r I have mixed feelings about my first Deb Caletti read.I loved the idea of this book the Quiet Girl and the rich, wild boy and one summer where everything goes a little crazy.I also loved portions of the prose Every now and then a sentence paragraph sentiment would just be perfectly captured you could highlight this little book like crazy with all those hidden gems.Unfortunately, those gems do get hidden drowning in often over written passages If I were to edit this book I would pare it right back because at it s core it s a thrilling story that teenagers could easily connect too.However I found myself feeling all too often like I was trudging through so many words without the plot moving along Caletti is obviously the fan of the extended metaphor and similes, whic...

    The unavoidable factor that underlies all of Deb Calleti s books is their uniqueness Sometimes, the uniqueness is good streamlined writing, interesting characters that are not too quirky, and a well defined plot Other times, it is bad This was one of the bad ones.This being my third book by Deb Calleti, I was not quite sure what to expect One of her other books I had given two stars, while her ...
