Maurene Goo's later books have a bit more going for them, but this one was enjoyable enough. Approach it as a slice-of-life episodic romp and you'll have fun. Look for deep character growth or fast-moving plots, and you'll be left disappointed.

Hand to people who are desperate for more Maurene Goo, but maybe not as an introduction to her as an author. (I suggest I Believe In A Thing Called Love for a better example!)

When I had recently shared some of my Young Adult reads an IG friend mentioned she was a school librarian who also enjoyed herself some YA books. She mentioned this author and suggested I check out some of her books. I brought this one along as one of my Hawaii trip reads. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. It was pretty surface-y. It was definitely a quick read (flew through it on the beach one afternoon), but I don’t think I’d recommend it to others. Again, it’s not terrible, just not too engaging and didn’t have a ton of drama or action going on. The first chapter drew me in (when a high school "nobody" was joking around while editing an article and it accidentally got published in the school newspaper), but from there it didn't really keep me interested or invested in the characters. I would give it a 6 out of 10.

Although not in the recommended age group, perhaps several years older, I still found this to be a most entertaining read!

I LOVE THIS BOOK. I finished reading it in 2 days (it's a pretty short book), and I was genuinely crestfallen when I found out that Maurene Goo has not written any other books! I can't wait for the next book (which I hope there will be).
YAY!!
