This was an interesting coming of age story because it doesn't go quite how you might expect. Sarah is an interesting character, and there are some interesting side stories that blend into the main one making it more readable than it might have been just as a love triangle story. Other novels have tackled the idea of a nose job or plastic surgery fixing things, but this one just seems a little more genuine, a little more down to earth than the others. Kristen as a supporting character is very good, she could have come across as completely shallow and self-centred, but she comes across as real and fragile. And Rock is just the right kind of perfect - good looking but not too good looking, and he has his flaws too. Enjoyable read that will leave you feeling satisfied.
