(Longest time I’ve read a book)
*Giveaway prize from A Book With Bea 🙂
In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably one filled with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary.
Everything changes when Phoebe learns that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her. So, Phoebe turns to the heroines in her favorite books for advice on a personality overhaul. Becoming as awesome as her book characters isn’t as easy as it sounds and when another girl nets Dev for herself right from under Phoebe’s nose, she’s crushed.
Then, to up the suckage, she gets assigned as his co-counselor at a sixth grade camp and has to spend an entire week tied to the hip with the one guy on the planet she wanted to avoid. Can she make it through the potential danger of romantic bonfires and nature walks without Dev figuring out she’s still not over him, or will her counseling career end in emotional disaster? Can she ever go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?”
I read this for a long time because I am busy and it didn’t really kept me reading. But it has a good story. I like the characters as well. The author created Phoebe as an outstanding representation of girl bookworms. Where she relates her everyday life and experiences with what she have read and to the characters as well.
It is also funny! I found myself giggling alone sometimes while reading.
Sorry for the super short review, I wasn’t able to take down notes when I read this.
