This has a total Gossip Girls/Gilmore Girls prep school hierarchy thing. The “popular, rich, trust fund kids” verse everyone else.
The story is told from the POV mainly from Hannah, but we do get some little parts from Cody and Harrison.
Hannah is sheltered. Ever since her mother left, she has only had her nerdy father as a friend and confidant. She realizes that going to college and having to talk about her high school experiences isn’t that easy, when she really didn’t have any. She was all around the best student and kept her head down. She didn’t wanted to be noticed and now at the end of her senior year, that is all she wants. Her goal is to go to the biggest end of the year party, with the elite of the schools social hierarchy. Problem, she doesn’t know how to infiltrate the social circles. She decides to blackmail one student (a former member of the popular clicks) to aid her in getting into the party.
Hannah is sweet, and smart. She is pretty, but doesn’t know it. When she speak, she talks more as if she is in a meeting or giving a presentation, instead as a regular teenager. She uses big words, and doesn’t think people understand her. She is athletic, because she plays tennis. The best tennis player in the state. However, her overall perceptive in life is, "if I am going to do it, I am going to be the best at it"; and, that is exactly what she does.
Cody’s struggles with the loss of his mother and a horrific experience associated with her. He doesn’t talk about it to anyone and keeps himself closed off, because he doesn’t want people to know the truth. The accident that caused his girlfriend to die is something that is held over his head by everyone. No one knows the true story, well some do, but no one is willing to come forward and confess what really happened.
Cody’s relationship with Hannah is fragile. They have a strong physical connection towards one another, but they don’t completely trust each other. Hannah’s overall goal is to get Harrison and the other popular kids to recognize her. She is determined to fit all of the “so called” high school experiences one would have, into 1 month. She does this so she can write her speech from an honest high school perspective. Cody helps her with achieving some of the stepping-stones of adolescence, but because of the social class differences, and the trust issues he has, Hannah ends up pulling away.
Hannah also becomes deceived. Here is my two cents. GIRLS if your gut tells you something is off, PLEASE LISTEN TO IT! There is a natural instinct all mammals have for life preservation. That gut instinct is to tell you to fight or flight and many times you should flight. Why Hannah doesn’t listen to that, well because she obviously didn’t watch enough scary movies knowing you don’t go into the scare house that seems haunted knowing there is an axe murder lose in the town. (Not at all happens in the story, just pointing out a typical scary movie scenario.
We are left with a Happy Ending.
I was disappointed with the fact that the Climax and the resolution all happen so fast.
I wish there was more. Longer Epilogue, or maybe a second book to it.
I overall rate the story at a 3.5.
It wasn’t horrible, but there was some parts I just all together skipped over and there were other ones, that I wish we had more of.
The story twists at the end totally change the dynamic of relationships in the story.
I am a big fan of this author and how she writes. You always embrace her characters and hope for their happiness. This was a good easy read, entertaining, engaging and left a good feeling when it was over.
