GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: A summer on the Jersey Shore comes with complications aplenty in this second installment of the He’s So/She’s So trilogy.As Ally Ryan learned in She’s So Dead to Us, hoping for the best doesn’t always work out. Her old “friends” in Orchard Hill still hated her, and falling hard for Jake Graydon didn’t help, since he managed to let her down more than anyone.
So when Ally has to choose where to spend the summer, she opts to put up with her mom’s new boyfriend and hang out at the Jersey Shore instead of sticking around Orchard Hill, where Jake has decided to stay. Summer at the beach isn’t all bad, especially when Ally gets involved with a local bad boy. But back in Orchard Hill, Jake is spending more and more time with Chloe, and his interest in Ally may be put to the ultimate test….
REVIEW: okay, this book frustrated me from the beginning to the end. I love the book…but it frustrated me…There was so much miscommunication at the beginning, that Jake and Ally weren’t thinking rationally. Just like the first book, this book was playing with my emotions and i loved it. 🙂 I felt for all the characters. Now, lets talk about Jally 😛
Ally→ this girl was stupid. She made so many great decisions in the first book, but seeing her fall down the hill in this one? Man, talk about annoying! I understand why she was acting out, but she still could have made better choices. Ally disappointed me in this book.
Jake→ ooooh jake…jake, jake, jake. He wasn’t too bad in this book. Its almost like him and Ally switched roles. He improved in this book…until the end (smh). Oh, but like I said, there was so much miscommunication in this book. Jake, like always, never said what was on his mind. He can never explain himself..
The characters in this book were so realistic. Going through real life problems, from boys, to SATS, to parents! It was a good read. The ending was shocking though and kinda funny…when you read it, your goin’ be like WTF
Lesson Learned? Nothing is as bad as it seems. If an individual keeps an open mind about a troubling situation that is bothering them, then the individual will be able to accept the problem eventually.
