Convince us to read book: It shows the true hardships and struggles of relationships in high school and how it works. Yes it may have been a bit over-exaggerated, but it really showed the pressure of high school socially.
Was there a compelling aspect of the book: How someone's life can depend on being in varsity soccer or not and be ruined. Really? I mean yeah it is high school but come on?!? That got me a bit of how much Parker caredabout being on varsity soccer or not. She was going to be captain the next year anyways, what was the big deal? I don't know, Parker just got to me sometimes about the whole situation. She made a big deal about nothing.
Did the cover tempt you and did it reflect the contents of the book: The cover does not tempt me to pick up the book, it looks like one of those books about a teen girl that just rants on and on. The cover does reflect the contents but it makes it look more like a self-help book on kissing then an actual novel.
