This book is about a girl named April. She fell in love with a boy named Matt. She has some hard decisions to make about friends, family, and Matt. She is not sure what to do this summer. Does she go to camp, stay home, or hang out with Matt? She is headover heels for Matt but he is confusing April. She is not sure how he feels. He acts as if he has mixed emotions. She feels like he is not that into her at times but at other times  she feels like he is crazy about her. What is a girl to do?


I liked this book. At times it was exciting and a page turner but at other times, like when she was trying to choose what to do over summer, it was slow-paced. I would recommend this book to someone who likes light romance but not for anyone who likes a fast-paced book. The plot was occasionally vague. My favorite character was Matt. He was hard to understand and I like that in a character. My favorite part was in the beginning when Matt first started to like April because it was romantic.
