She was so admirable , and her approach to her history assignment was downright inspired.
There were the jocks, the nerd, the cowboy… There was even a passionate Italian fling on holiday and a low-key thing with a TV star! You know those kinds of guys we dream of dating because I will admit to wanting to ride on the back of a Vespa?
It's Not Me, It's You
Avery dated them…but they were never right for her. The ship on these seas was pretty predictable, and I could see it coming from the get-go. That did not, in any way, reduce my enjoyment of the book. If anything, I think I loved it more. The way the feelings were slowly revealed was adorable! And then the big gesture at the end? Overall, this was a very fun, very swoony, very quick read that helped me get over my ire at the way a certain other series ended!
Get this book for a light weekend read if you need something smart and funny and adorable! Was this ever CUTE! Avery was a great character. She also gets extra points in my book for liking Roman Holiday which is one of my Wow! She also gets extra points in my book for liking Roman Holiday which is one of my favorite movies of all time. She really did grow as a character as she analyzed her past relationships. Hutch reminded me of a certain someone. I loved him as a character. His sense of humor was great too.

Cute, cute, and more cute. It was silly, fun, adorable, and happy. It was pages of lightness.

Even though we have differing views on what is an "important moment", I liked Avery. She wasn't the stereotypical mean girl or the dumb blonde. She was smart and nice. She wasn't conceited, she cared about people, and she had a kick-ass BFF. Coco was one of my favorite parts of this book. She quoted JFK constantly and always had her bestie's back.
I loved that this was a positive book. It was Avery looking back on her failed love-life and she didn't have a bad thing to say about any of the dudes. The 2 Things: As much as I loved reading this super-fun book, there were 2 things I would change. I could see it coming by page The other thing is that I was wishing for less G-ratedness.
When I read YA, I expect a little bit of edginess. Not over-the-top stuff, but this girl had 15 or so boyfriends and everything there was nicey-nice, nothingness. She had a few serious boyfriends, and I would expect that some of those would progress beyond kissing not that I need every detail, but teens are doing more than kissing , and I would expect some of those to have deeper issues than-- he said I love you and I didn't say it back.
I could never hate on this book though. It would be like kicking a puppy. It's adorable and fun-- totally do-able for Middle Grade readers, but also fun entertainment for older teens. Avery was popular and NOT a mean girl-- crazy isn't it?? I loved the format and the characters. Lightness is needed, but I was wishing for a tad more edge or drama-- or maybe just a little less sweetness. It's definitely a book that will give you a toothache.
