Avery James has her life planned out: this summer she’ll work with a humanitarian program in Costa Rica, next year she’ll graduate at the top of her class, and after that, college and medical school. Perfect, planned, total order.
The only problem: getting the rest of the money she needs for the trip before the deadline. Hannah Cohen, her biggest competition for the valedictorian title, makes an unexpected offer: If Avery can win over Zac Greeley and make him break up with Hannah before the end of the school year, a check for five hundred dollars is all hers. Faced with the prospect of spending yet another summer working as a giant hot dog, it’s an offer Avery can’t refuse.
Zac is nothing like Avery expected. Within his chaotic world of midnight slushie runs and spontaneous dance parties, her total order is quickly falling apart while Hannah seems poised to get everything she wants. But just how much is Avery willing to give up for the perfect, planned life?
Such a sweet cute read. my favourite thing about this book was defiantly Zac he was a happy fun ball of energy… much better than the brooding, overprotective, controlling, “perfect” guys we see playing the love interests these days. but the story was not just about them and their relationship. Avery has other stuff happening in her life other than him she has family issues and a best friend she is worried about that all show how she has changed and grown throughout the story. the relationship between her and Zac though is refreshing two imperfect people who hurt each other, make mistakes and fall in love… both being better for it. While hardly a classic in the making (these are only books people praise but don’t read anyway) this will be one I read again.
“Don’t steal anymore hearts,” he told me. “You’ve already got mine.”
“You are perfect, Avery. Just like you are, flaws and everything.”
“Because you don’t just walk away from someone when things get tough,” Zac said. “You find a way to stick it out and figure out what’s gone wrong.”
