GoodReads Summary
Jen's life of partying and sneaking out has grown stale. So on a whim, Jen makes a bet to turn Trevor, a goody-two-shoes geek, into a "bad boy." As she hangs out with Trevor, however, she finds it's actually kinda fun being a geek. But when Trevor finds out about the bet, Jen must fight for the things she's discovered matter most: friendship, family, and, above all, love.

My Thoughts:
I simply adored this book. From the beginning I completely identified with Jen. No, not the goth thing, but the wanting to be accepted and loved aspect. From someone who was searching like Jen was as a teen, I think that the story was fantastically written.

I really enjoyed Jen's character development.  It was very realistic and quite thought out. I got a serious geek crush for Trevor and loved their interaction and how fully developed Trevor's character was.

As Jen's past was revealed I wanted to reach into the book and just hug her (though she probably would have hit me lol).

The book was amazingly written and I highly recommend it. It's perfect for all ages and a book that will definitely tug at your heartstrings.

My Rating:
