I was sent a digital copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
Synopsis: Life is full of choices: good, bad, and ones you can’t control.
Raegan strives to be perfect in every way. Varsity cheerleader, honor student, and proud granddaughter of Dover Lowery. By day, Raegan is an over-achieving high school student, but at three o’clock, her real work begins.
What happens when appearances are not what they seem? Will Raegan be able to hold on to her life as she knows it, or will she be left all alone?
All of these questions are answered with one night, one song, one story, and one boy.
Well, it was okay.
That’s about all I have to say about this book. It was cute and all, but nothing really happened. I think this book would be a lot better for someone who is younger than I am and still in high school. Yes, I grew up in a similar upbringing as Raegan (though I live in the North), but I’ve grown up and no longer attend field parties and football games. I thought that I would still be able to relate to these things, but it turns out I can’t. On top of that, the romance was just ridiculous and juvenile. I know that they’re teenagers, but they act like a couple of thirteen year olds, and then swear that their love is “forever”. I don’t know, I think I was just a bad match for this book.
Like I said, it wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t good. Three out of five stars.
