Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Natalie saw Aiden, the new boy from Texas, first. But that did not stop Brooke from putting the moves on him, and their friendship’s fate was sealed. Or was it? They are the most unlikely of BFFs: introverted Natalie prefers to stay home nights and cook, while for Brooke, push-up bras and random hookups at wild parties are standard fare. The plot thickens when Natalie and Aiden are assigned as senior project partners. Natalie’s sympathetic dad adds a sweet subplot, and little varies off the path of the age-old struggle of falling for the best friend’s love interest. But Harbison exposes the potential life-changing results of giving in to peer pressure, giving up control of one’s behavior and sense of self, and wrestling with the consequences. While the first-person voice alternates between the friends within the five parts of the book, the epilogue, set two years hence and narrated by Brooke, demonstrates that maturation can indeed come with age. Grades 9-12. --Gail Bush

Ok first of all I committed a cardinal no-no and looked at the ratings on Goodreads right before I started this book. It didn't look promising. I decided that I would read anyways.
I'm happy to report that I'm a little confused about all the negative reviews.
For the most part people seemed to be upset about how teen bahvior was portrayed in the story. Honestly, it may have a been a little over the top but I wouldn't say that things were grossly over exaggerated.
I actually really enjoyed the story. I loved Aiden and Natalie. Probably because I saw a lot of myself in Natalie. She's a homebody that doesn't really care for the parties and nonsense that her best friend Brooke seems to thrive on. I felt sorry for Aiden when Brooke talks about their relationship and makes it pretty clear that she's only in it for convenience.
I didn't care for Brooke. I'm not sure if her POV was supposed to make me understand her a little bit more but it didn't. It actually had the opposite effect on me. Later she talks about how she feels hurt that Natalie put her own happiness above her friendship but isn't that exactly what she did in Junior year to Natalie?
This was a really great book about friendship, love, and growing up. I actually think it reminds me a lot of Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin only with high schoolers instead of adults.
I would totally recommend this book to people and suggest that you don't let some of the early Goodreads reviews stop you from reading it.

*I received an ARC from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

There was a lot that I loved about this book, but there were also a few things that didn't work for me. The writing in Anything To Have You is incredible. I totally connected with Paige Harbison's writing style, and I think that is why I loved Aiden and Natalie as much as I did. The book is told in dual narrative, split between the two best friends- Natalie and Brooke. Brooke is a wild child and Natalie is is more of a "homebody." But with some coaxing, Brooke manages to get Natalie to agree to come out more for their senior year and then the you-know-what hits the fan.

I really liked Natalie. I thought she was funny, and smart and sensible. I couldn't stand Brooke. I thought she was too jealous. but I pushed that aside, because I really did like the friendship that her and Natlaie shared for the most part. You could tell that they truly did cherish their friendship. But Brooke just let her emotions and jealousy for Natalie control her. Natalie is a very genuine girl. She made friends effortlessly and she always stayed true to herself and I think that her "effortlessness" is what upset Brooke the most. Natalie just breezed into parties (that Brooke dragged her too) and people flocked to her. I feel like Brooke just should have let Natalie stay home and then none of this would have happened, but that is neither here nor there.

Anything to Have You was a fairly predictable book. The writing was on the wall the whole time for most of the plot twists. One thing in particular really upset me. I'm not going to say what it was, but I really didn't want it to happen, even though I saw all the clues. And then once it did, the whole book kind of shifted for me.

Two friends. One guy. One night. Changes everything.

I have said it probably a 1,000 times; anytime an author can bring infinite amounts of emotion from you, they are doing something right. Whether it be sadness, despair, giddiness or in this case, anger. And it’s hard sometimes, to separate your emotions from a critical standpoint when it comes to rating and reviewing book. (or really, life in general). Of course, a book is going to affect you, regardless, but sometimes emotions get the better of us and we can’t see beyond that. This is why this book is so difficult for me to review.

Let’s break it down a little, shall we? Also, spoilers below.

From a critical standpoint– I loved that Paige braved it and wrote about something that you just don’t see that much in YA. I can’t count on both hands how many times I witnessed a situation like this in High School. It’s realistic, it happens.

With the drinking, drugs and blackouts, I really do think this was handled honestly and accurately. If you honestly think teenagers don’t go to parties, hook up and possibly blackout, you are wrong. If you don’t think some parents turn a blind eye to these events? You’re wrong. As much as Natalie’s indifference to her situation was, it’s realistic. No one wants to admit to blacking out and possible having sex with someone. She confided in Brooke, so at least she told someone. Should she had seen a Doctor? Hell yes. But you can’t honestly say, 100%, everyone would.

I really enjoyed how everything was going until about 40%-ish, when we have the pleasure (sarcasm) of getting Brooke’s side of things. I understand the reasoning's for it and I applaud the attempt but it didn’t work.
