There’s a not whole lot I can say about this book…

besides that IT. WAS. FANTASTIC.

I adore everything single little thing about this book. The pro-tag, the premise, the plot, characters, pace, everything everything everything. There is not ONE thing I can critique. Every female in her teens and up should read this, it’s wonderful.

I picked this book up as a “if I get to it” read. It was discounted on Amazon and I really need a break from my typical YA dystopia/fantasy/sci-fi stuff because I’ve been really getting burnt out with the same story over and over and over again. But this little beauty was so perfect. It was exactly what I needed and everything I wanted.

Ivy does an amazing job of creating our main character, Juliet. She’s sassy but not a bitch, playful but not crazy, smart but not a nerd. I just adored every little thing about her. I really liked how it wasn’t the same ole tale of nerd girl losing her V card, or beauty queen getting a smack down; there was no ugly duckling transformation here. It was a normal, good looking female, who has had sex entering the great wide world of college. She’s dealing with boys and romance and sex. Its not uncomfortable, its relatable. Its the perfect coming of age novel without it being a TYPICAL coming of age novel. I really can’t gush enough about how much I enjoyed it… umm I read it in THREE hours.

SO yeah, it’s by far one of my new favs. And the BEST introduction into the New Age genre evers.
