Summary: Ally Ryan would rather be in Maryland. She would rather be anywhere, in fact, than Orchard Hill, site of her downfall. Well, not hers exactly—but when your father’s hedge fund goes south and all your friends lose their trust funds, things don’t look so sunny for you. Her mother moved her to Maryland to flee the shame, but now they’re moving back. Back to the country-club, new-car-every-year, my-family-came-over-on-the-Mayflower lifestyle that Ally has outgrown. One bright spot, however, is gorgeous, intense Jake Graydon. But it won’t be easy for the two of them to be together—not if his friends (her former friends) have anything to say about it. Is Ally ready to get thrown back into the drama of the life she left behind?
Review: I know what your thinking, this is another stupid, cheesy, book. Well it honestly wasn't. When I read it at the time, I literally thought it was the best book ever. At the time it was. I only reread the book because I just now, like two days ago found out there were two other books that came out from the series. I thought it would never happen I used to check everyday waiting for it. Although it was like about two years since I read the book, so in order to read the next two, I'd have to recap on this book. I have to be to be honest it wasn't as good the second time around, probably because I've read more, therefore having more of an open mind to more genres and whatnot, but it was still good. It was really just an amazing book. You know what I said before about main characters having to be tolerable. Well the main characters were so close to being intolerable. Ally the female main character acted as if she were a saint, but in reality she was basically just as bad as her former friends, and Jake I guess he was a little better, was just a little annoying side. Although the plot was a little on the cheesy side, the book still managed to be pretty amazing. It was well-written, and well-thought out. It was not a short book, but I still managed to breeze through it as if I were watching a movie, it felt like a movie. This is a dramatic, but at the same time fun-loving book, that deserves to be read by the teenage population.
There were three book covers for this book, I read the one with the beads on it, and that's personally my favorite as well. Whats yours!
