I have been eyeing this book ever since it came out in hardcover, and I finally had the opportunity to read it. I'm so glad that I did - it was REALLY good.
Ruby's quiet - but when she meets a wild guy on a motorcycle that wants to take her for a spin, she follows her heart and goes for it. Suddenly, she finds herself caught up in a whilwind relationship with Travis, who steals, lies, and puts her in danger. When he asks her to steal money from her own boss, she ... well, I won't tell you what she does, but I will tell you it leads her to helping her mom "borrow" an senior from a nursing home for a road trip...
Readers will be interested in watching the way that Ruby's relationship with Travis matches her mom's relationship with Ruby's dad.
I was really pleased with it, and I think I'll be reccomending it to anyone who will listen!
Sloppy Firsts by Megan Mccafferty
Yay! I get first review!
OKay, Sloppy Firsts is about a girl named Jessica Darling, or as her dad likes to call her, Jess Notso Darling.
After her best friend moves away, Jess is forced to abide the Clueless Crew and their hopeless escapades. She's in love with the uberhot senior Paul, but he doesn't even know she's alive. There's another guy on the scene, however.
Marcus, aka Krispy Kreme, is PHS's resident stoner. After Jess helps him out in a tight spot, the two start to spen more time together, especially after he makes a surprising return to town after the summer.
This book is really good. Its a kind of feel-good book, mixed with a healthy dose of angst. It's a good read for a rainy day, and i would highly reccomend it. Current Mood: mellow
