This was the summer that would change my life.

No more being what everyone expected. No more doing what everyone else wanted.

So when Luke came into my life, I decided to keep him a secret. Maybe he as a dead-ringer for notorious Hollywood bad boy Trent Yves. And it was possible that everything he told me was a lie. And yes, I was probably asking for trouble. But all I saw was Luke--sweet, funny, caring--someone who would let me be the real me.

But which was the real him?

Our customer reviews

I don't read a lot of contemporary fiction,(as you can probably gather from all of my reviews) so I am far from being an expert. I have read some though, and out of all of them, this novel I'd have to say is the most memorable. With a really unique protagonist, and situation, I think that this book is definitely worth checking out. Reasons to Read: 1.Brigitta as a character: I think that we've all read about that girl who thinks that she's so socially awkward and weird, but she's actually really popular and everyone is just charmed by her. Brigitta is not that girl. She actually is just a painfully socially awkward girl, and while it can come off as cute sometimes, it is usually just embarrassing. She has little to no friends, just because of how weird she is. I found that this made her easier to relate to as a character, because she was very isolated people her age. She's been through a lot in her life, and after a point in this novel, you just want to give her a hug. While she did seem to get very swept away by Luke really quickly, I could kind of understand where she was coming from. I mean, a little attention from a boy after hardly having any friends? I would probably be swept away too. She's fascinated by religion, which I found to be really unique too. I tend to find that in most YA, the main characters are either all the way for it, or completely against it. Brigitta was trying to figure it all out, which religion seemed to fit her the best. 2.The Role of Religion: I really liked the way that the religion was handled in this novel. None of it was really preachy, or was forced upon the reader. While Christianity was the main religion that was pushed a bit more than the other beliefs, that was really only because Brigitta had a nostalgic, emotional tie to it because her grandparents had followed Christianity. There were so many other beliefs brought up too, other than the more mainstream religions. I found it really interesting to meet different side characters that came from different backgrounds. This book really handled religion well. 3.Luke: As soon as Luke enters the scene in this book, I was so fascinated by him. He's every other girls dream; tall, mysterious, incredibly good looking, smart. I really didn't judge Brigitta too much for getting so caught up in their relationship, because I loved Luke! I didn't mind the whole "Is-he-Trent-or-Luke" thing, either. It brought about some twists that left me guessing until the truth is finally revealed at the end. Even his character, I found to be really great, though he could be incredibly confusing at times. Overall though, Luke was amazing. I really, really liked this book. My only complaint was the whole situation with the cougar cubs. That was the only part that seemed a bit preachy to me, but it only came across that way a little bit. This book is fairly unique, is definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a good contemporary novel, or if you're just stuck on what to read next.
