I love this book, it's very funny and at the same time is very sad. It's really nice the way that the writer builds the relationship between the extroverted Jen and the shy Trevor. Jen has a lot troubles in her life for that reason she is very insensible at the beginning with her adopted family and with Trevor, but then she started to closing her scars and feeling good emotions for the others, about all for Trevor. I recommend this book. :)show moreby Vanessa López
I really liked this book, you quickly get under the main charachter's skin and start to understand why she makes the decision's she makes. Growing up the way I grew up, I have expierenced both issue's. My life wasn't the easiest so I started to gather toughness around me like a shield, alot like Jen did. Granted mine didn't end happily with someone piercing that shield, or multiple person's in the story, and bringing down that wall but the story has a great message of hope. That when you love someone, you love them for them, not because of how they look, or who their friends are. Being different can only be exciting. I was so proud of Jen's foster family for pushing through and never giving up. I wanted to stand up and applaud when I saw that they had kept all the money they recieved for caring for her and gave it to her. To many times I know of families that just have kids or take kids in for the money and the emotional impact can be devistating. I like how they never gave up on her dispite how nasty she was, they recognized that she had, had a rough life and that sometimes it takes a while for someone's gaurd to let down. I also expierienced Trevor's dilema, and I know how much it can hurt to have someone date you as a joke, or a bet. This book gave me an insider's look at how the other person might have been hurting. For once I was glad of the happy ending. It was done in just the right way, that towards the finale I was smiling in anticipation of what I hoped would come.show moreby Rainy Days and Pajamas
