Blurb (from Goodreads):
In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This started out okay, but I lost interest.
Phoebe was a person who obviously liked reading books, but thankfully she wasn’t irritating with it. I didn’t see the problem with her taking flirting advice from books either, especially as she was a fan romance novels.
The storyline in this was about Phoebe and her crush on her friend Dev, but it just seemed to go on forever. They’d flirt a bit, then they’d flirt a bit more, but nothing ever really seemed to move forward, and it just made the book drag really badly, especially when they went off to camp and carried on flirting there!
The ending to this was definitely a bookish ever after, but it just took so long to get there!
