Kate Brown's life has gone downhill fast. Her father has quit his job to sell vitamins at the mall, and Kate is forced to work with him. Her best friend has become popular, and now she acts like Kate's invisible. And then there's Will. Gorgeous, unattainable Will, whom Kate acts like she can't stand even though she can't stop thinking about him. When Will starts acting interested, Kate hates herself for wanting him when she's sure she's just his latest conquest. Kate figures that the only way things will ever stop hurting so much is if she keeps to herself and stops caring about anyone or anything. What she doesn't realize is that while life may not always be perfect, good things can happen -- but only if she lets them....
What I thoughtElizabeth Scott is becoming a favorite author fast. I have yet to pick up a book from her that I haven't devoured and loved. This, of course, was no exception. I melted into the story pretty fast and latched onto Kate right away. I felt so bad for her, seeing how things slowly tailspin for her and her family.
I loved Will. Completely! He was just so perfect for Kate that I couldn't help but root for them both. I'm a sucker when it comes to the heroine being a little insecure and having their doubts proved wrong. Kate isn't so sure about what is going on with Will and it made my heart ache for her as she tried to figure out just what she wanted and how to keep moving forward.
I was pretty sad when Kate's best friend ditched her for the popular crowd. Every time Kate saw her, she just wanted so much to have her best friend back. The popular girls don't see the real Anna like Kate does and it was sad to watch Kate pine for her friend.
This was just an excellent read. Everything pulled me in and kept me hanging on every word. I highly recommend this author and this book. It's just a well written and captivating story.
