I hate you, Fuller James.
I hate your floppy hair and your lopsided grin and those laughing blue eyes that always seem to be laughing at me.
I hate that you’re the most popular guy in school and I’m still the girl who sneezed and spit out her retainer on someone at a middle school dance. It’s just such a cliché.
I hate that I’m being forced to tutor you in English and keep it a secret from everyone. Because otherwise it might put our basketball team’s chances at winning State in jeopardy, and even though I hate you, I love basketball.
I hate that it seems like you’re keeping a secret from me…and that the more time we spend together, the less I feel like I’m on solid ground. Because I’m starting to realize there’s so much more to you than meets the eye. Underneath it all, you’re real.
But what I hate most is that I really don’t hate you at all.
Cute and fun!
I really liked Fuller and Wren’s story. The change in him from his first scene to the last was a bit extreme, but at the same time it was what readers were hoping for and we saw reasons for it, so it didn’t seem too out of the realm of possibility (and honestly, shouldn’t we all hope to change from 7th grade to 12th? I mean really…)
And his grand gesture? Fan-freaking-tastic…
The “bet” that Fuller makes in the beginning was painfully horrible, though it helped (a little) that even he knew if was wrong as he made it and yes, he did the right thing calling it off in the end. He doesn’t make the right choice right after that, of course (and you knew from the start that this would somehow contribute to the relationship black moment) and that was why he needed to pull out all of the stops for the grandest of all grand gestures to make things right.
Hudson (Fuller’s little brother) and Wren’s grandfather were really solid secondary characters and helped to make this book so much fun to read. This was my first book from this author, but probably not my last!
