I love this book! I was so excited to read this and it did not disappoint!
the plot is pretty simple but how the story maneuvers is pretty addicting. i even saw myself reading the first half of the book in one sitting. and if i wasn't supposed to sleep, i would have read the whole thing. it's a very engaging read!
the romance game is definitely up! this is quite light and fluffy in the most amazing way! we have this word in Tagalog/Filipino, 'kilig.' it doesn't have a direct translation in english, and it means the feeling of those butterflies in your stomach, the feeling of your heart soaring, the feeling of romantic elation, and so much more i cannot explain in english. the closest is 'swooning' but you won't pass out! lol! and i swear, i had major 'kilig' feels while reading this. (btw, this word is now part of the Oxford English dictionary)
i also love the fact that this is not just about romance. it tackles family relationships, the difficulty of growing up, friendship, and just having problems that a teen shouldn't have. and the thing that made me want to read this bad is the education part of the story. this is YA, a contemporary young adult book to be exact. and school seems to be a very minor part or even nothing to the books i've been reading lately. school is more of a place in most books, and the learning part is either very small or none. so this book tackles more education, but not a lot. but i still appreciate it. and don't get me wrong, meeting a guy through studying is not a bad thing either! lol!
if there are anything i didn't like, one is the very perfect love interest. he might be nerdy (nerd, i think is derogatory but even the author thinks so too which is a plus!), but i think he has no flaws. two, is the lack of aesthetic in friendship. i know it is not really the main point of the story, but i did love that it was quite unconventional and true. and three, it has a tendency to be very cliche and predictable. but it definitely compensates with how the character's reactions and feelings were written.
speaking of writing, i like the author's writing style. it was not overly explained, it was simple yet it made you feel with the character which is the most important thing.
i wish there was more to this story. it's the type you want to last forever! it's really good, great writing style, amazing characters, and very engaging plot.

Ah! So many feels! Again this is one of those books that make me question why I ever avoided contemporary/romance books! I mean really, where were all the guys like Jonah when I was in school? 😍 While I loved this book, I felt the beginning and ending kind of lost my attention. (But that's why I don't often read this genre) I wasn't instantly drawn to Natalie, and while I loved Jonah from the start, I feel it's important to like the narrator as well. The same with the end, I knew it was a HEA type story, but with all the problems and tension building up, I felt the end was slightly rushed and simplified. I wish there was some added struggle with (view spoiler) and that it shouldn't have all just...happened with out a hitch. Maybe I just thrive on drama in stories, but I like books that keep me on the edge of my seat until the last line, or at least leave me feeling something. But still I loved the overall story, and I definitely had feels for this book, so I'm giving it a solid 4/5 star!
Natalie is about to graduate high school. . .maybe. Her grades stink, she's always ditching class, and her and her mother's store is sinking faster that a submarine made of pure concrete. When the school forces her to tutor sessions and extra credit work, she's anything but thrilled. But if she doesn't take the chance, she's saying goodbye to every dream she might have had.
There's a lot to love in this book, and it isn't just the guy Natalie falls for. The author weaves in several things, which the young adult audience can easily identify with and take Natalie in as if she were one of their own best friends. Natalie's life is messed up, but it's not really her fault. Not completely. She's trying her best to protect something that is important to her and her mother--their dreams. Natalie is simply in over her head and needs a life-line to pull her out. This love for family and trying to fight despite the bad odds makes Natalie a true heroine despite her mistakes. She's a nice girl, and one worth cheering for until the very end.
The romance works parallel to Natalie's family struggles, letting both sides of the story weave together without one over powering the other. The romance is not love at first sight and needs to be worked for and discovered. The opposite side--an seemingly easy relationship--is dropped in as a harsh comparison. Between both this romance struggle and Natalie's family one, a message comes through clear - things worth having require effort, patience and determination.
There are other messages as well, but these flow along with the heart-touching plot. The read is easy, comes across smooth, and never has a boring moment. Fans of YA high school romance are going to enjoy this one.
I received a complimentary copy and found it so cute that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.

Natalie and her mom are down on their luck. Their store, the Magpie (cute!), is not doing well and is in danger of foreclosure.Read more
