Thank goodness for Bug, Josh and Dani, or else i'll be trashing this book completely. Hudson has no balls, so to speak. and what an awful, awful friend! Bittersweet started out good for me (esp her first meeting with Josh). Then lets-make-out-with-Will episodes came in. followed by i-like-Josh-but-Will's-here-so-let's-make-out-some-more scenes. And after all she's been through to get back to skating, she realized it was not her dream in the end. Screw you, Hudson Avery! Grrr.
I like Ockler's writing. It was so easy to get into. But the story was unbearable! Let's see: Hudson wants to get back to skating. In the process, she disses her best friend (dissing friends is her hobby), disappoints her mom, and completely abandons her brother (just to sneak into a New Year's Eve party!). All this, while baking to-die-for cupcakes, flirting with Josh, and... oh! tonsil-hockeying with Will. and yeah, a little skating practice here and there. Yet, when skating stares at her head-on, she bails. Again. WTF.
If Hudson making a fool out of herself was not enough, her Mom and friends at the diner gives her crap when she finally decides to pursue her so-called dream, skating. Great way to appreciate Hudson, Mom.
I believe this is my first book that i would like to be rewritten. Major overhaul on the plot, please. Gah.
There are swoon moments, yes, and Josh is... let's just say i'll give him my kidneys too if he wants it. :)
Bittersweet. Three parts bitter, two parts sweet. Man, i was ready to fall in love! Sigh. Hudson ruined it for me.
C'mon, Bug, how about you and I play with Mr. Napkins, instead?
