This book is my first Meg Cabot read. I know, i know! I am so late reading a Meg Cabot chic-lit, but spare me the blame of lost time and fun read. I was just always been running away from pink covers and fashion-related story line. Well.. now I gave this a shot. The email-styled story-telling will make some people raise their eyebrows, but i have to give a quick advice that it's all worth it in the end. The hilarious characters were all over the top! Gossip and dialogues were funny that will make you snort and choke. Though the ending was abrupt(i am reading the kindle so i can't cheat and peep the pages), it's still a very sweet and simple one. You'll love the minor characters too and the funny banters. It's a quick, no-sleep-if-you-haven't-finish read.
Very hilarious! Try reading it! >.>
“IN THE SECOND GRADE, WHEN YOU ARE A BOY WHO LIKES A GIRL, YOU GIVE HER YOUR BEST POKEMON CARD. OR YOU PULL HER HAIR. NOT HARD ENOUGH TO MAKE HER CRY, THOUGH. OR YOU CAN ASK HER TO ROLLER SKATE BACKWARDS WITH YOU, AND THEN HOLD HER HAND SO SHE DOESN'T FALL DOWN.”
