Blurb (from Goodreads):
When life gives you a blank canvas, make art.
Sloane Whitaker hates everything about moving to Texas. She hates leaving behind her friends and half her family in New York, starting over senior year at Austin’s NextGen Academy, and having to say she lives in Texas. Most of all, she hates that it’s all her fault. If she wants to earn her way back to the Big Apple, she has to prove she can still be the perfect daughter.
Which means no vandalism art, no trouble at school, and absolutely no Tru Dorsey, her serial screw-up neighbor, who loves nothing more than pushing her buttons.
But from the moment he vaults onto the roof outside her bedroom, there is something about him that makes her want to break every rule. Suddenly it’ s not the ten things she hates about Tru that are at the top of her list. It’s the ten reasons she doesn’t want to be without him.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Admit it,” he whispers. “You like me.”
This was a YA contemporary romance, about a girl who thought that having to leave New York was the worst thing that could possibly happen to her.
I was a little confused by Sloane at points in this story; she’d obviously done something pretty bad to cause her mom to move her out of New York because of it, but it was all a mystery what she had actually done, and she didn’t leave any hints!
The storyline in this was about Sloane having to move to Austin, and start her senior year at a different school. She claimed to hate Austin, and Tru (their neighbour), when it really seemed like she didn’t hate him at all, and maybe even actually liked him!
There was a bit of romance in this, and a couple of sweet scenes between Sloane and Tru, but the whole book wasn’t about the romance really.
The ending to this was okay, although it was fairly predictable.
