This story tells the tale of a typical red-blooded American young teenage girl. Calixte, like most teenagers, goes through many highs and lows until she finally accepts and "finds" herself. Unfortunately, she doesn’t always make the best choices when it comes to boys. Calixte is oblivious that while she was busy fratenising with her ex-boyfriend, her "true" love was undergoing serious mental distraught, and that their love was capable of changing his playboy ways.

Opinion: 

The setting was vividly decribed and allowed the reader to totally immerse themselves into the world of Calixte. The voice of the book gave a very authentic feel to the narration of the story and felt typical to modern teenagers. However, the characters in the book are at times unrealistic and dislikeable. While this may have been deliberate characterisation, it seems as if the characters needed more depth and more relateability. However, this book is a good start for author's first novel.
