GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Ally Ryan would rather be in Maryland. She would rather be anywhere, in fact, than Orchard Hill, site of her downfall. Well, not hers exactly—but when your father’s hedge fund goes south and all your friends lose their trust funds, things don’t look so sunny for you. Her mother moved her to Maryland to flee the shame, but now they’re moving back. Back to the country-club, new-car-every-year, my-family-came-over-on-the-Mayflower lifestyle that Ally has outgrown. One bright spot, however, is gorgeous, intense Jake Graydon. But it won’t be easy for the two of them to be together—not if his friends (her former friends) have anything to say about it. Is Ally ready to get thrown back into the drama of the life she left behind?
REVIEW: I love this series! The story is told through the eyes of Ally and Jake’s which is awesome! With the way it was written, you could tell the difference between both characters completely, and being in Jake’s head was pretty funny at times.
Ally–> I like the attitude Ally had throughout the whole book. She was mature for her age. With the rejection of her old friends and everyone else in the school, she handled it pretty well, and I’m proud of her. Her old friends put her through all kind of craziness and she still forgives them. Her relationship with Jake is cute as well. She shows him that he is going to have to earn her friendship.
Jake–> Oh Jake…this boy has problems *shakes head*. I love Jake, but he has such a big-ego. Sometimes he got on my nerves, especially when he didn’t say what was on his mind. But that is why I love him…his imperfection. His character grows a little in this book, which is good. Jake is torn between his friends (Ally’s old friends) and Ally, and sometimes he handles it well, and other times…ugh. He was really sweet and thoughtful. Sometimes—-when he was thinking-—he would actually put himself in other people’s shoes to see how they felt.
The characters in this book were all different in their own way and Kieran Scott has written the story in a unique and beautiful way-—It was very unique
The ending? Talk about a shocker! I had a feeling this series was going to be awesome…that is why I brought all three books in advance! (woo…*pretends to wipe sweat off forehead*)
This book definitely played with all of my emotions and when a book does that it’s…
Lesson Learned? Don’t let anything get you down. Stand up to others and don’t follow the crowd; be yourself and do what you feel is right.
