this book had me blushing and giggling like a damn teenager lol. 

well it got me out of my reading slump finally! i really liked it. i thought i had read this years ago but honestly, i think it just sat on my shelves for so long that my mind thought i had read it. so ftr and i loved it!

i know this is a y/a novel and these books are obviously simpler that other books, but i wish there’s was more showing instead of telling. it seemed like every paragraph the narrator was “i did this. and then i did that. and then i said this. and then i saw that.” i feel like there was no descriptions, it was just someone talking. 

Also the entire book, America kept narrating on how smug and rotten Celeste is, and i agree ofc, but we didn’t really see that until the last 50 or so pages. so for the majority of the book it was just america complaining about a rude girl that wasn’t even important. 

but besides that and the fact that america is the biggest “i’m not like other girls” girl, i really loved this book
