    "Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn't think she's the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her "the Duff," she throws her Coke in his face. But things aren't so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him. Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn't such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone. And eventually, through this realization, Bianca begins to see how harmful her unhealthy way of dealing with her problems has been, and finds a way to confront them head on. "

    "I like romantic comedy books so I decided to read Oh. My. Gods. It's not very good. Honestly it's really cheesy and really doesn't keep my attention. There's nothing in it that surprises me when reading it. It doesn't even feel very well written. It reads more like something written by a junior high kid. I hate it."

    My Fair Godmother

    Finding your one true love can be a Grimm experience!

    After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah's gum-chewing, cell phone–carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she's only Fair―because she's not a very good fairy student―Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah's class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight. Laughs abound in this clever fairy tale twist from a master of romantic comedy.

    "Tenn Idol is a fun book, especially for teenage girls. While the premise is a little fantastical, it is rooted in the dreams all of us have to be seen and recognized for our talent. The protagonist is super relatable and there's a lot of humor stemming from her ideas, the situation, and others' responses. A welcoming and accessible coming of age tale with a skewed and silly perspective!"

The struggle Mim has with being a good friend and upholding the family traditions is so real. I also appreciated that almost all of the main characters are strong women. Just awesome."
