I wonder what it would be like to do high school things. To go out on the weekends. To kiss a guy. To have a normal life. A real one. Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar...and that's just how she likes it. Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants -- only what she wants may not be what she needs.... Once again, Elizabeth Scott has created a world so painfully funny and a cast of characters so heartbreakingly real that you'll love being a part of it from unexpected start to triumphant finish.
What I thoughtI'm a sucker for these kinds of books. I loved the story around the romance too. I really did feel bad for Hannah as she crushed on a guy who didn't really see her (at least at first) and to have the father that she has. I really do think it was the storyline behind her parents (mostly her father) that really reeled me in.
Hannah doesn't have a perfect father. Most of the time, it's like she doesn't have one at all, since she hasn't talked to him in 5 years or so. I liked the Hugh Hefner like story behind her dad. Well, not liked, because I felt bad for Hannah, but I thought it was compelling on Hannah's part as she tries to come to terms with who she is, not who her parents are.
This was sweet and charming. And I think Hannah ends up with just the right guy (even if she didn't know it at first). This is my second Elizabeth Scott book, but now I'm dying to get my hands on more of her stories. I highly recommend both author and book.
