The girls in this book are pretentious, snarky snobs. Poor Ally just seems like the coolest, most down to earth girl, and all the Cresties hate her. Because of something her Dad did. Dumb, No? Jake can seem really cool one moment, then really awful the next. Cause he was totally awesome until he started getting all "My friends can't see me with you." Yeah, some friends they are buddy. But Ally was just cool throughout the entire book. So. The story was cute, and I'll probably read the next one.
Here's the Blurb:
Ally Ryan would rather be in Maryland. She would rather be anywhere, in fact, than Orchard Hill, site of her downfall. Well, not hers exactly—but when your father’s hedge fund goes south and all your friends lose their trust funds, things don’t look so sunny for you. Her mother moved her to Maryland to flee the shame, but now they’re moving back. Back to the country-club, new-car-every-year, my-family-came-over-on-the-Mayflower lifestyle that Ally has outgrown. One bright spot, however, is gorgeous, intense Jake Graydon. But it won’t be easy for the two of them to be together—not if his friends (her former friends) have anything to say about it. Is Ally ready to get thrown back into the drama of the life she left behind?
I give this Book Three Stars.
