This book was a very cute, teen novel.
Jan is your typical high school student, with an IT girl bestfriend., tiffany, who seeems to prefer older men.
At first, when Jan meets Josh, she didnt think it was a big deal, up until a few days after she suddenly began to get excited around him, as they would semi flirt (:
And the best part is, Jan gets to babysit his little sister, meaning she gets to see him even when theyre not in school.
As she faces a few misunderstandings, she ends up letting them take over her mind and not giving Josh an explanation to explain.
This book is realistic, funny, and very cute. I certainly enjoyed it, so i hope you consider giving this one a shot!

This book was laid out like the classic movie love story. Girl like guy, guy likes girl, complications happen, happily ever after. I thought this was a really cute book. I like that in the end she finally got the guy she wanted because to me they sounded like the would be cute together. This book was entertaining and funny. It was the classic love story for high schoolers. I have to say that while reading this book I felt bad for Jan because she had to see Josh with a girl that he had feelings for for a while and I was almost relieved for her in the end when they finally got together. Its was a bit corny, but adorable nonetheless. I give this book kudos for humor and wit and for pulling together the classic teen love story.

Ending made me scream in pain! My parents came rushing into the room because they thought I was dying then were pissed off because I was just finished my book. Melissa Kantor is THAT good of an author that she made me cry at the end of this book. I lent it to my friend too and she said she cried at the end. I so highly reccommend this book because it is SO good! You will love it! I guarentee! The whole book makes you keep reading, but I advise to get it from a library if you can becuase you will be reading it for a day and a half, its way worth the money but save the planet. =D

I don't know why, because I usually don't prefer books such as these, but this book just intrigued me. I loved the plot line, however cliched it sounded, and one wonderful thing about it was that Jan, the protagonist, wasn't afraid to admit that she had a fault: that she was crazy jealous of her best friend. That part captivated me, and held me in, and got me through the whole book. Just Jan's discoveries about self-worth and life were amazing, and the romance was completely cute.

I'd say go for it, when reading this book. I found it a little hard to read at first, but I forced myself to and never regretted it :)

Jan Miller is a senior in high school who's convinced she is destined to lead the world's least fabulous life. From her best friend, who is an official New York It Girl, to her parents (who always seem to be in the right place at the wrong time), Jan never feels that she's got it. Her college application deadlines are looming and her French homework is taunting her. And when it comes to love, Jan's destiny appears to be as tragic as a Greek play. When a romantic Shakespeare scene-reading with her crush turns humiliating, Jan feels more star-crossed than Juliet. She never seems to say the right thing around guys. Unlike her best It Girl friend, who knows the moves and the lines to catch an older, adorable, sophisticated boyfriend. If only Jan could write and star in her own reality...
But in spite of feeling that the forces of the universe have it in for her, Jan's about to learn that in life and romance, being a Not It Girl has some major rewards."

I thought that this book was really amazing. Jan was an great lead character... full of witty one-liners and sarcasm that was very entertaining. Jan's It Girl best friend was amusing and a good foil to Jan... highlighting all her qualities (good and bad). I identified with Jan because we are the same age (about 17) and I am going through a lot of what she was going through in her life.

omg, how to sum this book up. it was so cute and real seeming i almost felt like it was me in the story. i loved the plot, of a girl who wasnt a cool as everyone else. and doubted herself in to thinking that she couldn't get the guy. i feel like that all the time. i thinkevery teenage girl should read this becuase it gives you confidence that you can get the guy you want and that it's not impossible. this is a wonderful book.

I have to admit, this book has crossed my sight for more than 6 months, and finally when I cannot find anything else to read at my library, I pick this one up. It's different I admit (because I really don't go for the Confessions of a . . . kind of books, but it surprised me) From the hilarious takes from Jan's POV to the descriptions, I have to admit, this book has it all, the insecurity, the drama, but most of all, the realizations. That's the best part.

Jan (pronounced Yahn) Miller is having a rough senior year. Besides the fact that she's named after a (male) Renaissance painter that no one has ever heard of, her butt is the size of Texas (and that's an understatement), she has a crush on the new boy, and she's best friends with Manhattan's It Girl, whom everyone loves. It will take more than reassurance from Rebecca, her best friend, and some Ben & Jerry's to realize her own inner It Girl, and readers will be cheering her on the whole way. This book is candidly funny, and you'll be able to identify with a lot of Jan's feelings.
