Cute

A cute story.

The story:
Erin's life is seemingly perfect. She's popular, with great friends. She's dating a boy she's been friends with her entire life. But when she finds herself betrayed by one of her best friends and said boyfriend, everything falls off course.
Homecoming. Being queen is what she's always wanted. If she was honest with herself, it's the reason for a lot of things. Her sister was homecoming queen and her mother before her. It's expected. When she reconnects with an old friend, she discovers maybe her priorities were wrong all along. She doesn't need the spotlight after all. She only needs him.

What I loved:
The story really brings you back to high school when the social ladder seemed the most important thing. When who you ate lunch with could determine your social worth and having a boyfriend was a life or death thing. It paints the perfect picture of a time in life most loved, but would never go back to. The friendships are the true star of the book. They can survive anything - from boyfriend stealing to other betrayals.
And of course, Peter. He's too perfect.

What was just okay:
Erin is obnoxious. She cares more about being homecoming queen than anything else. Everything is about her and it got a little old. If I were a teenager, I'd never want to be friends with her.

Final Verdict:
A cute and entertaining read that depicts an extremely accurate view of high school. The good. The bad. The ugly. But in the end, we're left with a heartwarming feeling.
