Author: Susane Colasanti
Pages: 288
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Release Date: May 2010

Summary: Lani and Erin are lifelong best friends — and total opposites. Lani’s a down-to-earth Taurus; Erin’s a fiery Leo. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. They’ve always had wildly different tastes, from pizza toppings to guys. That is, until Erin starts dating Jason.

From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can’t deny the amazing connection she feels with him. It’s like they’ve known each other their whole lives. She’s not sure if he feels it too — but even if he does, he’s off-limits. Lani’s determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than hurt her best friend. Then Erin goes away for the summer — and Jason seems to appear everywhere Lani turns. How long can she keep running from the guy who just might be the love of her life? (source:

My Review:

This book is basically a typical YA novel. It was very well written for the audience intended. I loved reading this book; it was quite easy to relate to all of the love and fun that high school has, not to mention how it reminded me of my own summer love.

The development of the characters was really well done. The plot was a little hard to follow at times because it jumps around a bit. I feel like it was a little slow at parts. But all in all I think it was a fantastic book. Definitely one I would read again!



  1. The summary that was written was kind of not fulfilling to me, if that makes sense. It just seemed to me that you were just trying to get a post up quickly. Also, if you would read it again, why only three lightning bolts?

  2. Okay, as sad as this sounds, I LOVE this kinds of books. It looks really cheesy and kind of dumb, and yet, I still want to read it.

  3. That cover is what caught my attention. And the summery was actually pretty interesting.(: I love these silly teen romance books, they're the best.(: The review seemed sort of rushed but it was still good. I think i might actually read this one.(:

  4. I agree with Katana, the cover is deffinatly an eye catcher. A couple embracing or something is what you see all the time, but with him holding hands with another girl is absolutely eye catching. I would love to read this book if i could find a copy. Also why did you only give it 3 stars if it was that good?? Were the slow and jumpy parts really that bad??
