This book was very different from what I expected...in a good way.
I thoroughly enjoyed the writing. It's been too long since I read something written so well. The emotions were completely on point, I felt everything...the frustration the female lead felt, her pain, her fears, her happiness, her love. It was ...wow.
I was a mess while reading this honestly. This book hit me harder than I thought. It had waaay more depth than I expected and considering it's a story based in high school it definitely didn't feel immature or boring.
Definitely pick this up if you're looking for a wholesome book on self discovery, loving yourself the way you are while finding new friends and a sweet heartfelt romance (which wasn't exactly the highlight of this book.. maybe?)
I'll be looking forward to reading other works by this author!
About the book:
High school senior Cameron Bright’s reputation can be summed up in one word: bitch. It’s no surprise she’s queen bee at her private L.A. high school—she’s beautiful, talented, and notorious for her cutting and brutal honesty. So when she puts her foot in her mouth in front of her crush, Andrew, she fears she may have lost him for good.
In an attempt to win him over, Cameron resolves to “tame” herself, much like Katherine in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. First, she’ll have to make amends with those she’s wronged, which leads her to Brendan, the guy she labelled with an unfortunate nickname back in the sixth grade. At first, Brendan isn’t all that receptive to Cameron’s ploy. But slowly, he warms up to her when they connect over the computer game he’s developing. Now if only Andrew would notice…
But the closer Cameron gets to Brendan, the more she sees he appreciates her personality—honesty and all—and wonders if she’s compromising who she is for the guy she doesn’t even want.
