In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary.
But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?
I super liked the first third of this book, but lost interest after it didn’t really pick up. It’s about a bookish girl who knits, does archery, and is in love with fictional guys. So, yeah, basically me… and every other book blogger.
But as much as I could relate to her and her rants, the plot just didn’t keep my attention. She starts to act like her book characters to get a guy’s attention and the first 30% is adorable. I might finish it eventually, who knows. The writing is by no means bad, but it just didn’t seem like there was a full story in there.
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy!
