Both lead characters remind me of a combination of Goonies characters. I’ll explain a bit later…Read More »

<— This is how I feel about this book.¬†I have been holding this review in, waiting for pub day and I am EXPLODING with excitement that its finally out in the world!

Has a book ever made you laugh and cry at the same time? Well this book will make you “craugh” and craugh hard.

The story unfolded over a series of emails, texts and blog posts. I had never read a book entirely in that format and it totally worked here. It was expertly done! I read a majority of this book in one sitting because I needed to keep turning the page. Read More »

This book is super cute and I loved the author’s love of classic rom-com’s and pop culture; it came through multiple times amongst the characters dialogue. She created likeable characters that flowed well within the story. I felt like they would be really fun friends: I want to be their roommate too!Read More »
