But beneath all the fun - the nonestop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom - is a nagging sense that some thing's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops.

Boy Crazy

Title: Boy Crazy
Author: Hailey Abbott
Pages: 228

Basic Rating: 2/5
Story: 2/5
Characters: 3/5
Cover: 3/5
My Recommendation: For those who like light reads and a book full of boy craziness

My Thoughts: My rating for Boy Crazy is a 2/5. It was good, the characters were cool, made sense, and were created well, and for the most part i liked reading the book. The dialogue language was up to date and i loved how Hailey Abbott really described and really knew the city she wrote about. Her words to describe things was wonderful and made me feel like i was there too. It was a good summer beach swim read, lighter, but still with some dilemmas that the characters had. Though for myself personally it wasn't really my sort of book. Their wasn't enough conflict and friction with the lead guy and lead girl for my taste, but it wasn't a bad read. It didn't make me want to read more or sad to leave the characters like i normally feel after a book ends. I thought it needed something more to make me extremely happy with it, though i really liked the ending, i thought it was perfect.

Plot: LA girl Cassie is having fun and enjoying her summer back home, working at her perfect job at Catalina and hanging out with her two best friends for the first time in a long time. Before things always prevented them to spend very much time with each other, and she really missed their time together. Though both Cassie and one of her best friends Keagan have failed in the business of love and both have gotten there hearts broken. So in order to leave all past heartbreaks behind the three girls make a pact. A special promise to all kiss 10 different guys over the summer. Their plan is to date like a guy and to just have a fun- commitment- less summer. But things turn to be more and more complicated, starting when Cassie's number one turns out to be the perfect guy for her.

Its not easy to fall for the enemy. . .
