Blurb (from Goodreads):
Audrey Anderson has one chance to escape poverty—excel academically and get into a good school. She’ll let nothing stand between her and her goal: not dating and certainly not snotty Scarlett West. The girls can’t stand each other, so why is Scarlett hanging around Audrey and getting under Audrey’s skin—in more ways than one?
Scarlett needs a tutor, and Audrey doesn’t want the job. She still resents Scarlett offering to pay Audrey to do her homework, but her compassionate best friend talks Audrey into giving Scarlett a second chance. The more time they spend together, the harder it becomes for Audrey to fight her growing attraction to the other young woman.
At the same time, Audrey’s interest in her new neighbor’s bizarre behavior gnaws at her, and she can’t leave the mystery alone. Her relentless curiosity might cost her everything.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“She gay or whatever too?”
This was a YA GBLT contemporary romance story, and I liked the drama at the end!
Audrey was quite disadvantaged, her family had little money, and she didn’t even eat properly most days, so I felt quite sorry for her. She could be quite rude at times though, but this could have just been a defense mechanism.
The storyline in this was partly about Audrey’s life in general, and partly about the blossoming romance between Audrey and Scarlet. The romance developed quite slowly, but we did get a little bit of a love triangle in there. I liked the romance overall though.
The ending to this had a bit of action and drama which was quite exciting! I liked that things ended well for Audrey though.
