I won this in the member giveaways and was sorely disappointed. I felt that the main character was whiny and a caricature of a high school girl. She complained bitterly about very minor things that her parents did. The book over all was very predictable and could use editing. Read full review

About the author (2010)

Linda Nelson published her first YA romance in 2013. She is a self-published author who began her writing career in 2010 as just a Fantasy & YA Writer. Now it is all about the romance, a huge career change that took place in the past couple of years when she discovered RWA. Fantasy is her favorite genre to read and write, and her favorite way to escape the day to day life. When she writes YA contemporary she loves to infuse them with conflict, the more, the better. Linda works a full time job by day and writes at night and on the weekends. When she took the plunge into publishing, she jumped into the stream of self-publishing, learning everything the hard way. She is a native of Massachusetts but migrated to Southern New Hampshire later on in life.
