-Synopsis from Goodreads


Okay, okay, I know you’re thinking, why? Why are you reading a book by Hilary Duff and how is it worthy enough to put on this blog? Well, first of all I know this a mess because the picture is of the second two books and the synopsis is for the first book.

So let’s dive right in,shall we?

I read the first book awhile ago on Christmas break and I read it in a day. I don’t remember all that much about it, I just know it was good.

Anyway, so I started the second book last Tuesday night and read a page or so before going to bed.  The next day, I devoured it, finishing 350 pages in a day. I was emotional all day long; going from angry, sad, happy, and back to angry. During rehearsals, I was sitting next to Tay (of course) and I was literally smacking her, squeezing her legs, and looking at her when something happened.  She had to remind me quite a few times that I couldn’t yell out because people were in a scene. It was that bad. So needless to say it was good.

So as soon as I got home, I wanted to dive into the next book, but I couldn’t because of homework. So again before I went to bed, I read the first page and then went to bed. I finished the book in school the following day going through the same emotions, just not as strongly. It was very good.

Overall I give this series 9 out of 10 approval because it captivated me. It was an easy read so I recommend this book to eighth grade. It had some language in it, but overall it was very clean. This book gave me all the feels and people looked at me like I was crazy, but that’s normal.

Is there a book that has ever made you feel all the feels?
