Barbie is a damaged girl from a broken home. Not damaged in the way everyone thinks; she wears a tough skin, flirts and teases to get what she needs, and doesn't let anyone give her any crap for it. Everyone thinks she is nothing more than drugged out crazy slut. Though she doesn't argue with them, she is none of those things. What she really is, is a poor girl with a drugged out crazy mother and an autistic little brother who relies on Barbie for care. Barbie will do anything to graduate and get Everett away from Alabama and their mother. Graduating means passing Algebra, which she currently is not doing. Hoping Dylan can tutor her into graduation, she bites the bullet and asks for his help. Something she does not often do and especially not from Dylan.
I liked Barbie, quite a lot actually. She's a rare beast in the teen world. The skirts she wears would put me in an early grave if I was her mother, but she's a good girl at heart. Always there to take care of everyone else with no thought to herself.
Dylan has all the makings of a good guy, if he could just get out of his own head and the perfect imaginary world he's designed there. He wants to do the right thing but he's so far out of the loop that he doesn't always realize what that is. Dylan aggravated me, often, but to no fault of his own. It's more through circumstance than choice and I could empathize with him, for the most part.
Acosta created some very intriguing characters. Not only with Barbie and Dylan but also their families and friends. Third, Dylan's best friend, is amazing.Read more ›
Yes, this YA story has the troubled teen going on; Barbie is literally from the wrong side of the tracks. She's got the neglected little brother, the falling-down house, the negligent, drug-addicted mother, and she's got a bad-girl rep at school. But even with all that, stuff that's been done before, I still cared about Barbie and even came to love her. I cried at a couple points in the story. Poor Barbie trying to be something, longing for a better life, longing for something good, something like Dylan, but that's one problem I have with this romance: I don't think he's good enough for HER.
I kind of liked him at first. He's got the nerd thing working for him, and I do love a cute nerd hero. But he is so hung up on little freaking perfect Katie. Katie is the mean girl, the fake girl, and when Dylan looks at her, she is a slow-motion reel of beauty and grace. I hated her. And I began to hate him for being fake like her. Yes, it is high school with all the requisite drama, but I was so angry at him for saying he loved Barbie but would still find himself wrapped up in Katie. There is some angst there, seeing Dylan with his arm around Katie, kissing Katie, but he is upset with Barbie and his best friend, Third.Read more ›
Deep down she's damaged, hurting and has no one other than her brother. No father, alcoholic mother, the usual broken home. All she wants is to graduate and to take her autistic brother far away. Only problem is, she's failing. She seeks the help of Dylan as a tutor, and in return get him his "dream girl".
Dylan has always had a thing for Katie for as long as he can remember. To him, she is perfect. But after seeing her under the bleachers with a football player, he begins to have doubts. That and the fact that the more time he spends with Barbie, the more she gets under his skin.
Slowly, these two teens realize they have feelings for each other. Unfortunately for them, being typical teens, they worry about what others think. Well, Dylan does anyway. Barbie just feels that she is not good enough for Dylan.
The budding friendship between Barbie and Third is not to be forgotten, it's sweet and I love it. Third is Dylan's best friend, and he's more than willing to befriend Barbie, even though Dylan isn't. This causes a misunderstanding of course, between the 3 and Dylan briefly loses two friends.
I was not expecting the ending, and I will definitely be reading the next book, to see what happens. I love the POV in this book, it went back and forth between the 2 characters, and I love that!
There were a few errors, typos, punctuation, grammar, etc. But none of that deterred me from reading this book. If those were fixed, I'd love to give it 5 stars!
