About the Author
Charity Tahmaseb has slung corn on the cob for Green Giant and jumped out of airplanes (but not at the same time). She spent twelve years as a Girl Scout and six in the Army; that she wore a green uniform for both may not be a coincidence. These days, she writes fiction (long and short) and works as a technical writer for a software company in St. Paul.

It was pretty much your typical Girl has a crush on the most popular boy. The characters Bethany and Jack were so cute together! They didn't go exchanging I love you's with each other- which i really liked. Nor did she became popular just because she made the cheerleading squad. It made the book more real.
I thought the ring Jack gave Bethany was a nice touch to it . It seemed more real by giving that to her instead of just saying words l love you to each other in few weeks they known each other like most books do. I'm more an action kind of girl.To me actions speak loader then words ever do.
Overall it was an entertaining book!
I had few problem with The best friend who ditched Bethany for a guy but everything worked out in the end. This book will always be in my favorite pile.
The characters were real and I could see how early teenagers could relate.
The language was authentic teen and flowed nicely.
I liked that the female heroin wad strong yet displayed a welcome vulnerability that allowed girls to see that it's okay to be yourself.
Buy the book and you won't be disappointed.

I think we all grew up with the stereotypes and clicks in school , there was always something that separated a group of people from another and no matter how many could have had the same thing in common there was always something or someone that kept them all separated singled out and with their own "herd" as one of my teachers use to call it. When they would rant rave and wander down the hallway trying to get around all of us as we stood about talking or just walking and taking up most of the hall. It comes a time when we all question and wonder what it would be like to be in a separate group. Would our friends be different or the same would there be more trust in one and not in the other. And then we questioned ourselves. Where did we fit? Who were we most like or not like? What was it like to be so and so?
This book was a perfect fit for that we go through seeing two best friends facing family turmoil and things that most would say were not them and trying to step outside that box. Two "geek " girls join the cheerleading squad together they actually try and end up going separate ways for a little while before they realize that they were the perfect set up and match of best friends there should be both have their flaws and both have to work for their friend ship they are tried and tested but it's surprising to see where they come out in the end but then again maybe it's not so surprising. It's a very good book that shows that just cause you think your one way doesn't mean you can't step outside your box and try something new who knows you might even like it and make some really good friends at the same time too.
