Cover image and synopsis from Goodreads:
In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary.
But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?
I picked this book up for a cute, contemporary read and was pleased that its protagonist was so bookish!
This was definitely a cute book, but I couldn’t really get into it. It was a pleasant enough read, but kind of forgettable for me overall I think. Contemporary YA fans may enjoy this more than I did, and I know people who loved this book, so perhaps I’m the odd one out here.
This was not a bad book or anything – it just wasn’t one that will stay with me.
