I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am excited that it was selected as a 2012 Whitney finalist. It is clean, quirky, and funny enough that I made a fool of myself laughing in public, when I was by myself.
I'm always happy when a book that is truly entertaining also has a character who learns and grows and that's the case here. I worried I wouldn't like Mattie, but what came across as selfish and immature at first was really just her insecurities. She was brutally honest with herself and others and sometimes that honesty is uncomfortable but funny.
Sariah Wilson has created a great YA story with characters you won't soon forget.
