Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. She just deviated from the character I loved at the beginning of the book. But days before her sweet sixteen, her boyfriend Jacob uttered four horrible words that killed Brie on the spot: Fans of Leila Sales will eat this one up, with its charming characters and funny plot.


It’s so relateable, since I’m 15, too, and I would hate it if my bestfriend steals my boyfriend. Sometimes you have to get to know people better, to understand them, and sometimes you histtory to give people including yourself time to evolve and struggle with things before they can be resolved.

Aug 27, Sasha rated it liked it Shelves: Yes, Darling is his surname! Sadie is the only one that gets a lot of character development, but all of them got enough for me to want to hang out with them. I’ve ordered this book, but I’m too impatient and a sucker for spoilers weird, I know.
