Cover Rating: 4/5
This one time, at band camp... Oh man. If you like drama, semi-romance, reading about cruises and some good, old fashioned, rivalry, then you will probably like this book. I finished it in less than a day. It was very light, fluffy and cute. There was a lot of shenanigans, both good and bad.
Liza is our protagonist. The first few pages she is this no nonsense, drum major who has everything planned out and scheduled and all it took was five seconds to turn her around entirely. And what caused the five second turn around you might ask? A boy. More specifically....
Lenny. This assbag... He seemed like he could have been such a good guy but he was entirely self absorbed and played games with peoples heads and hearts. A cute face isn't everything. Plus, why would you want a cute face that is attached to an assbag when you can have a cute face attached to a football player who has been nothing but nice to you?
Russ was sweet, kind, funny and overall just everything you normally don't find in a quarterback. Well, genuinely find. Most guys can fake anything. But Russ was actually a nice guy. He spends this entire cruise getting shat on by Liza, helping her out of stupid situations and all for what? NOTHING.
The entire book was basically about trying to win this contest so the band could be saved and Liza acting like a total buttwipe. Chasing the wrong guy, being horrible to her friends and losing focus of everything that was important to her. The she magically comes to her senses after being humiliated. Why did it have to come to that? You were chasing after some cute guy that you bonded with when you were twelve over that fact that your parents were both divorced. Yup, Liza, sounds like GREAT boyfriend material.
The ending was perfect. And by perfect I mean unrealistic. It was nice and cute for the book to end so great but that just isnt how reality is. I still enjoyed the book but the ending made it even more of a fluffy read.
Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.
