Reviews for Not That Kind of Girl
Not bad, although maybe tries alittle too hard
This was probably better than I thought it would be, although I found the main character Natalie to be more annoying and stuck up that I had hoped. Connor was so sweet and it wasn't entirely clear why he liked her so much. In any case, a light enjoyable read, come and check out my full review at www.ourbookclub.net.au by Natalie Ward

Natalie Sterling is not that kind of girl. No, she's the good one. She studies hard. She's done SAT preparation to ensure she gets into a good college. She's the president of student council and has the encouragement of her amazing teacher, Ms. Bee. And she's defended her best friend, Autumn, when the rest of the school was calling her names.
But now, Natalie's life is a mess. She's had a major blow-up fight with her best friend. The girl she used to babysit is now a freshman and getting into sticky situations. She's in full-out war mode with Mike Domski. And there's something going on with Connor Hughes.
Natalie can't afford to get off course now. And when she starts connecting with Connor in the middle of the night, she tells him that it's just for fun, and no one can ever know. Natalie is distracted and everything in her life is starting to suffer. She barely makes it to her SAT test. Her student council responsibilities are suffering.
Natalie has to come to terms with what kind of girl she really is. She has to decide if she's one type of girl or many small parts rolled into one body.
I really enjoyed NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL far more than I expected to. It read quickly and pulled me right into the heart of the action. I have to admit that Natalie was my least favorite character, though the story revolved around her. I found Connor the most realistic and lovable of all the characters. I wanted to just hug him and make him come right out and tell Natalie his true feelings. by TeensReadToo
