Shelves: can-read-a-thousand-times This is another of the books that I can turn to when I cannot find anything new to read. Plus this is one of the few books I have read about theatre people in high school, so I kind of also get some insight. Ok lets talk about Hannah first. Hannah was just really cool though sometimes I just wanted to punch her face because of the This is another of the books that I can turn to when I cannot find anything new to read.
Hannah was just really cool though sometimes I just wanted to punch her face because of the way she acted towards Josh. And to add insult to injury she was doing all that for the douche-bag Kyle. I am not some expert or anything but from the first scene I knew he was a jerk. But, I think Hannah was really innocent and I felt sorry for what that stupid guy did to her and what she had to suffer because of that. I especially envy her relationship with Hayley and like how they support each other through their problems.
Now to Josh. Josh was a great hero. He was so tentative and cute! Even though both of them tiptoeing around telling each other true feeling made for a painful read, it also endeared Josh to me. And he was such a good guy too. One Hannah could rely on after what that idiot Kyle did. So sweet and such a darling Geez, I sound so maternal. But truly, Josh made the whole book worth reading by possessing such great traits and by having an awesomely crackling chemistry with Hannah. Those two belong together.
On to the supporting characters, we have established that Kyle is a jerk-head that need not be mentioned again in this review. Another person to add to the jerk list is Harlow.
This girl was way worse than Kyle. Of course, such a journey is fraught with drama - which Hannah should be well equipped to handle since she is a "drama kid".
I loved that this novel had a definite "teenage vibe" going. It read and felt like a teenage romance. I think that sometimes adults read YA expecting the kids to act like adults do, when teenage romance is a completely different beast.
Teens are easily blinded by love and are often fickle in love too. I felt that the plot was solid and that there was decent character development. Drama and general family craziness kept it light and fun. I did appreciate how Hannah and her mom were able to have a conversation around Harlow and her influence on the younger girls and how their parents interacted with them.
That interaction is one example that helped to give a bit of depth to the story. First, Grandma and Duke. Not exactly something I would expect in YA clean fiction. My second beef is with the party scene. Hannah is a junior in high school. Her older sister Harlow is a junior in college. This book is labeled as "clean", but this is not appropriate content for clean YA.
Finally, the end. Specifically the fact that a freshman girl, her upperclassman boyfriend, and then a junior along with her boyfriend all fly out to Las Vegas together.
Once again, not what I would expect from clean YA.
