For Keeps by Natasha Friend
This Book was really not all that great to me, but it was okay. It just wasn't what I was expecting. Josie's dad shows up way too late in the book for it too really make an impact, because you have to read about 200 pages before he shows up! I thought that was what the story was about! Josie was okay, but her character didn't really speak to me. I thought she was underdeveloped and just plain boring, to tell you the truth. I also thought this book was going to be a cute, fluffy romance(See cover.), but it just wasn't. Josie and Matt got absolutely no development time, and no real back story. Their romance was like this: Meet, Talk, Make out, End of Story. No back story whatsoever. No heartbreaking feelings. Nothing. Maybe it just wasn't for me, but I sure wasn't feeling it.
