Profile Picture

Michelle Pearce is a 17 year old girl with a life that is out of the ordinary. She has a "loving" mother and an okay paying job. Her grades are (from her point of view) alright, but her counselor says different. Everything in Michelle's life is average until a tall, poor (but handsome) man walks through the door of her job. From that day on Michelle's life goes on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Things may turn out for the better, but then again, they may not.

 

Profile Picture

This book was very good.  It is a love story between two opposites. Michele has no friends until Nathaniel comes along.  He was too nice and she was too mean. They were perfect together.  Every puzzle piece fit together. It was a difficult love story.  Nathaniel affected Michele like no one else could. He turned Michelle into a girl who could love and who became very passionate about him.  He made her realize her faults and encouraged her good side. This love story is sad and funny.  

Profile Picture

I give it three stars, preferably 2 and a half. Why? Because I didn't really understand it. I only skimmed through it. It was not exactly 14 year old material, if you know what I mean. But, what I mean is the book had a lot of things that might've been for older people than I. But, from the pages I've read, I'd say it was an okay book.
