I received this book as an ARC.

This is a young adult book about a high school freshman. It is written in diary format, and I times feels a little like you are invading someone's privacy. However, I have always had that issue with reading books that are diaries. Due to the format, everything has been written after the fact and there is very little dialogue taking place. My biggest complaint is that there are no dates. I know that is silly especially since when Melissa writes the entries she does try to tell you how much time has passed. I just think that dates would have helped me to follow along a little better.

With that said, the story is all about Melissa and the hardships she faces in the first couple months of her freshman year. Her body has gone through a lot of changes during the summer between middle school and high school, and in typical girl fashion, she is ready to show it off. She is finally feeling confident in her own skin and is eager to enter the world of dating. In particular, she wants to date Brian, a football player and swimmer. She is rather preppy even though she isn't a cheerleader and loves to make herself look good via cute clothes and makeup. What she is not prepared for is for her best friend from forever to decide that she doesn't want to be friends with her, an ok friend to decide to be her best friend, and the boy she likes to actually really like her.

The actual climax comes when her newest friend tries to steal her boyfriend as well as Brian trying to move their relationship to a much more adult level than she's willing to accept. Her ex-best friend from forever returns to her to rekindle their friendship and essentially life returns to the way it was in middle school. It is like reading a high school soap opera. Bethany Lopez captured the essence of a freshman girl perfectly.

Written in diary form, I was a little worried about the potential of this book. None needed.

I chose to read this book as I agreed to review for tour the third book in this series. I figured I should get caught up before reading the third book. Short books and quick reads I'm glad I decided to read them.

This was a quick read without a lot of complexity. I liked how the author titled each entry with a number and title, not a date. There was reference to days of the week, but that was it as far as a date. The title gave a slight hint to the content of the entry.

My favorite part was the portrayal of the family in this book. Melissa has an amazing and real family. Her parents and strong and supportive, but obviously still set boundaries for her as she is a 14 year old girl. The interaction among siblings was fun and real. They didn't always get along, but they didn't hate or fight all the time either.

Great story and quick read. As a young adult read, I would agree younger teenagers as well as older readers would enjoy this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a very accurate portrayal of what life is like for the average fourteen year old girl starting high school- such a transitional year, with changing friends, boyfriends, alternately hating your family and realizing they are the best thing that could happen to you. And the main character, Melissa, has a rough freshman year, having to go through it all. Bullies, friends who aren't really your friends, peer pressure- she is indoctrinated pretty quickly to the world of high school. She manages to keep it together with the help of good friends and her family, who support her and love her, although she did find herself hitting some low points in between, such as fighting in school and with her sister. Her feelings about certain things were dead on to how a younger teenage girl would feel.

All in all, I think this is a great first book! I think this book is definitely one kids are going to pick up, read and enjoy, and I can't wait for it to be on the shelves of our library this year!!

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It was a cute, quick, easy read.

I enjoyed the journal format of this book. It made me feel more connected to Melissa. The language and actions all fit a 14 year old girl as well. She wasn't too grown up or too young.

Melissa is your typical 14 year old girl who cares about boys, clothes, hair, friends, social events. Melissa also loves her family very much. She enjoys her time with them even though she sometimes wishes there weren't so many of them!

Two characters that I didn't really like were Layla and Brian. Layla, from the beginning, I thought was fake and not a true friend. And Brian, there were warning flags all over him from the beginning. They fit the story...we all knew these people when we started high school. I just didn't care for them that much.

Would I recommend it: If you like YA books that are quick reads, then, yes, read this book!

Will I read it again: I will not.

I'm really disappointed right now. I'd seen a lot of good reviews for this book. I thought it was going to be a short but awesome read to fill my time. Wrong.

Melissa was a believable character. Sadly, she's annoying and shallow and childish. But believeable. She's also 14 so it was a little hard to connect with her because she's so young. And she acts like child too. And she's stupid. And cares about shallow, stupid things.

I thought it was pretty cool that Lopez wrote this story like a diary. Lopez was able to skip over the slow parts and really only talk about the good parts. Sadly, even the good parts were a little boring.

Lopez could have written a better main character and added some really cool and exciting things to this story. I'm still left feeling disappointed that this book didn't pan out the way I thought it would.

Plus, I didn't think this was Young Adult. It was more Middle Grade.
