What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)

Sixteen-year-old Virginia Shreves’ life is finally back on course: she’s accepted who she is inside and out and is rebuilding her relationship with brother Byron, whose date-rape charge shattered everything.

But just as she adjusts to her new normal, her world turns upside down again. Sparks with boyfriend Froggy fade, her best friend bombshells bad news, and then the police arrest Byron. As Virginia struggles to cope, she meets Nate, an artist with his own baggage. The pair vow not to share personal drama. But secrets have a way of coming out, and theirs could ruin everything.

What I thought:

I was so surprised by this book! I absolutely loved it! I have not yet read the earth, my butt, and other big round things (book 1), and I’m really excited to read that one!

I listened to the first 70% and read the remaining part on my e-reader. The narrator of the audiobook is so good! I need to listen to more books that she narrates! Maybe it was just because of the writing style, because the book also reads really easily which was really nice for this book!

I loved the characters and their development, the story, and the writing style.

The only reason I took one star is because it was quite simple.

This review feels really short, but I do not know what to say more haha. It was just really good and you should read it!
