I first want to start off by saying LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the cover of this novel! It always draws me to read the description after seeing just the cover. I feel like a cover has to be essence of what the novel is and the words are the soul of the novel. I might be dramatic as my daughter would say but that's just me!
Secondly, the characters and the storyline. Sienna and Lee a story that's told over and over again and never gets old. A boy and girl meet fall in love are some how pulled apart by some force that's been there all along but some how now it's a problem. Blah, blah, and blah! However, what sets this book apart from all others is the characters that you fall in love with, the storyline that intertwines them in which we often fall right in love with. We live with them in our story book like!
Lastly, this was such an adorable coming of age, high school novel about putting aside your happiness to make the world a little better.
I recommend this story for anyone whose a romantic at heart.
When new boy, Lee, moves in, there's an immediate attraction between the two, but there's also one huge complication--her very overprotective mother. Lee is such a great guy that shows characteristics of a true gentleman. His patience, strong will, and protectiveness are very appealing. As for Sienna's mom, I'm so glad she isn't my mom! A past mistake leads her to believe that Sienna needs to be shielded from everything and controlled, almost to the point of treating her like an inmate. I felt that she went over the top in her reactions and rules, even coming across as a hypocrite in a way, but as a mother myself, I can understand where she is coming from and I could feel her intense love through the mess.
The story unfolds in a very progressive way and I felt like I was back in high school again--almost. The feelings, rivalries, and drama are all there. I liked the bits of conflict and the way things were resolved, although not always completely. There are a few little mysteries to be solved. I really enjoyed the story and I'm eager to read the next book.
Content: mild romance (kissing, implied past relationship). Clean!

I loved Sienna, and the way she doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks about her. She's not afraid to be herself and she is not afraid to stand up to the popular kids to try to make people who are kind more popular than they started out.
I liked Lee too! He's a great guy, a gentleman really and I loved the way he's always watching out for Sienna, even though Sienna's mom won't allow her to really date anyone.
I remember girls just like Jordan Rubio who went to my high school, so it was kind of fun to see Sienna trying to bring them down a peg or two! I liked the way the supporting characters in this book were done. They were all just like kids that I knew and went to school with when I was in high school.
This is a cute, clean book that I will be passing on to my teenager to read! I'm excited to read the next one in the series!
