My Recommendation: For lovers of Elizabeth Scott and other writers like Sarah Dessen. It's a really good coming of age - drama for teens.
My Thoughts:
The first thing i must say is that this book is so much better than "perfect you". It's more my style and not so kissy with no emotion. It actually had substance of growing ad some unusual not typical event is in a teenage girls life. It was real and Hannah was real and her feelings were relatable to a degree. Elizabeth Scott did a great job on this book and i am really satisfied and more after reading this story. For me it was addicting and i just wanted to know what would happen next.
The characters were really good and understandable. Great mystery's behind them and you want to know their story.
The story is heartbreaking in terms of sad but not sad sad depressing. (if you read it you'll understand.) It also glows with some light as the book goes on. It's my kind of YA story that is a young adult story of a girl with romance in it (or what ever you'd like to call it), but it doesn't make the book sill or unnecessary (like "perfect you" was sometimes to silly and not really real.) It's both fun and emotional. I think it is a better book of Elizabeth Scott and it gives her more diversity.

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photo's of pretty girls and his "party" lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar . . . . . and that's just how she likes it. Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, confident Josh is her soul mate, but between trying to get him to notice her, wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about her coworker Finn, and dealing with her parents, Hannah feels like she's going crazy. But she's determined to make things work out the way she wants - only what she wants may not be what she needs . . .
