This is usually the type of summer themed coming of age contemporary that I love. And in some ways I can understand where Sarah, the main character, is coming from.
She's fifteen about to turn sixteen, and just been dumped by her best friend turned boyfriend because she hides behind her love of science and doesn't get involved in the world unless she has to. During the annual summer trip to their aunt's house at the beach Sarah decides she will try and act more like her pretty popular older sister Scarlett who has loads of friends and boyfriends. Whilst starting this experiment, Sarah meets Andrew, a handsome local boy. They hit it off in an awkward but cute way. Should be fun enough and fairly easy to see where it's going right?(show spoiler)
Based on that alone and what I read of the end of the book, I'm too annoyed to really to want to know how they got there. Especially since this was a book I was really looking forward to. I'm now marking it as DNF.
