Gemma can't believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma's heartbroken.
Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max's friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can't help thinking that Max likes her back--it's just too bad he's already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend's boyfriend?
Review : LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. You see out now alot of YA books that have the girl who is in love with her best friends boyfriend right now but Jennifer Echols beats them all by a landslide! She is an awesome author who makes you feel like you are in the book and her books seem real to me. Her books stand out because they are the same but different. You can relate to her characters so much more awesome and real!!!
Gemma is who every girl can relate to. She is overweight and has it reminded to hr everyday by her "best friend" which in my book is not a friend at all. Throughout the book she is losing the weight but she still feels she doesn't add up, but she is someone who you ask for advice because she is just herself. When she meets Max I was like wooo mama. When things start to get a little weird because she is feeling this connection with him and dating her "friend". I use the friend term loosely throughout the whole book I am thinking she is a sneaky witch I would LOOOOOVE to punch right in the face!!! As some true revelations come out, Gemma stays whole and strong and does not do what I would do! Throughout this book you see her struggling with her "friendship", making new friends, learning to love and when to open up to someone :)
This book is a must read! I know you will love it and if you love this then you can check out my all time favorite YA book Going Too Far also by Jennifer Echols!
