This book has changed my life, it shows the meaning of being honset to yourself and making sure you're true to, not only yourself but to all those around you.
Honestly this book made me put my fist in the air and shout 'GIRL POWER!'.
Thankyou Abby Mcdonald, I never re-read ANY books but I cant seem to get enough of this special one.

This book is full of mortifying meltdowns and filled with laughter. It seemed as if it was something that would happen in the real world. I enjoyed reading this book a lot.

I absolutely loved this book! It's one of the best I've read this year. It was dramatic, hilarious, romantic, and is easy to relate to.

This book was a great light read. The author has done a great job of capturing teenage heart break and a journey to finding yourself. An enjoyable read!

I enjoyed this book. It was believable and I found that I really connected with a lot of the characters. It was a nice, light novel.

I found the book good. It was a bit long at parts but I like how it relates to the youth.

Sadie, 17, has been madly, obsessively in love with her best friend Garrett for two long years. She’s shared his taste for tragic Russian literature and campy art films, but he sees her as a buddy while he dates other girls. When he goes to a summer literary camp for six weeks, she decides it’s time to get over her obsession with him, and embarks on a project to reinvent herself. Boosted by an eclectic group of friends, old and new, and a job at the local coffee hangout, Sadie begins a comical but touching journey of finding herself – and hopefully, losing her crush on Garrett. Recommended for fans of Meg Cabot and Joan Bauer. Reviewed by DC

Amazing! I love the concept of getting over someone! It feels impossible in the beginning (trust me, I know) but with help form your friends, you'll get by.
