It did have some bad things, I mean it starts out with a senior sending her hunting through a huge school building for a room that doesn’t exist.
It might remind you of some of the bad crap from your high school days (if you are past that already). If you are still in high school, it could give you horrors of what “might” happen. Unless you have already had worse things happen to you of course.
Either way I think you will like the book. I liked the characters. Except for the dance partner she ends up with temporarily. But even he wasn’t all bad. Just very self centered.
And it is about Freshman year so you know things are gonna get better.
Highly recommend this one. Especially to anyone who likes clean YA fiction.
About the Book:
When Avery Thornton needs to escape a first day of school disaster, she ducks into an equipment room to hide and meets someone else who’s also having a really bad day. Eli Fields just got demoted to third string on the football team, a sport he doesn’t even really want to play. On the hunt for a dance partner before her competition season begins, Avery discovers Eli’s secret, non-football life outside of school. She thinks he could be the dance partner she’s dreamed about. But Eli wants no part of dancing with Avery. When someone else steps in as Avery’s partner for competitions, she and Eli begin practicing steps “just for fun.”
But, is that really all that Eli wants? And although Avery has found a perfect partner, she’s learning that perfection doesn’t necessarily equal happiness.
