GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Just when Ally and Jake think they’ve finally got it together, things fall completely apart in this drama-filled conclusion to the He’s So/She’s So trilogy. After their long summer apart, Ally and Jake were hoping for a drama-free senior year. Instead they are faced with a turn of events that threaten to tear them apart…for good.
It turns out that Chloe is pregnant and says that Jake is the father. Hammond is pissed at his best friend, and he cannot believe that Ally would stay with Jake. But Ally’s willingness to make it work is tested when Jake starts blowing her off to go to doctor’s appointments with Chloe, and Ally joins the school play—and meets a cute guy.
As graduation approaches, new secrets come out and Ally realizes maybe Jake isn’t the guy she thought he was. After everything they’ve been through, can Ally and Jake get out of Orchard Hill with their relationship intact?
REVIEW: This is my favorite book in the whole series! This book had the most emotion out of all the three. It was filled with love, heartache, jealousy…just…every emotion you can think of!
Ally→ Ally was a great girlfriend in this book. She stood by Jake’s side even when he was being a jackbutt. Ally was so strong-willed and open-minded with her family and Jake. She made me mad with the little sympathy she had for Chloe and the way she handled it. But that was before she knew what Chloe was going through, so I could understand some of her decision-making a little.
Jake→ Jake is going to be a great dad when he’s older! 😀 He handled the baby situation so nicely. He couldn’t balance out his relationship with Ally and Chloe well, but he tried. But getting more into the book…oh man, he was making me mad. He was filled with hatred and had such an attitude with everyone. His character did get better towards the end though.
I think Jally learned a lot in this book—helped them develop more as individuals and strengthen their relationship as well.
Lesson Learned? love can conquer all if you try. Through any problems with family or friends. Whether its forgiving someone or accepting a problem. It takes effort on the individual’s behalf.

**For Spoiler Content…
I knew it wasn’t Jake’s baby! omg! i was so frustrated and waiting for him to find out! I was hoping he would figure it out when she told him the birthdate! Or at least tell Ally the birthdate and let her figure it out!
Awww, and when Ally asked him what he would do if she was the one pregnant and he thought,
“I’d marry you…I would take care of her. I would do whatever it took to protect her. But what was I, insane? I was seventeen. I couldn’t say that out loud.”
That was sooo sweet. He really does love her with all his heart. He just has a funny way of showing it throughout the book. Oh, but when he acted out her favorite seen from Sixteen Candles? And her surprise birthday party? omg! the cutest thing ever! My heart swelled up.
