Synopsis: Avery James has her life planned out: this summer she'll work with a humanitarian program in Costa Rica, next year she'll graduate at the top of her class, and after that, college and medical school. Perfect, planned, total order.
The only problem: getting the rest of the money she needs for the trip before the deadline. Hannah Cohen, her biggest competition for the valedictorian title, makes an unexpected offer: If Avery can win over Zac Greeley and make him break up with Hannah before the end of the school year, a check for five hundred dollars is all hers. Faced with the prospect of spending yet another summer working as a giant hot dog, it's an offer Avery can't refuse.
Zac is nothing like Avery expected. Within his chaotic world of midnight slushie runs and spontaneous dance parties, her total order is quickly falling apart while Hannah seems poised to get everything she wants. But just how much is Avery willing to give up for the perfect, planned life?
This book was a fun read, very entertaining and cute. I liked how things turned out in the end very much and I thought it had a sort of different taste and twist there near the end.
Zac is an easy-going, quirky, fun guy, but everyone treats him like he's an idiot. He's actually smart and kind and I loved that, especially how he managed to surprise Avery a few times.
Avery had me a little tired with all of her mistrust with pretty much everyone. I do understand how she was betrayed and that makes her mistrustful towards people, but come on!
Her mother abandoned Avery a few years ago ans she is, of course, affected by this and I loved how she put on her big girl panties and took care of her family, especially her brother. I thought it was sweet but that she should have been a bit looser. Not so uptight. That pissed me a little, but whatever.
In conclusion, really it was fun and great, cute and funny.
