When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?

I liked it but not as much as The Truth About Forever which is one of my favorites from the author. The book of course has the usual elements of Sarah Dessen's novels -  girl with some issues about her family or friends, then she meets the boy who she will fell in love with, or will help her get over those issues. Same, same. But what I liked about this one is that it's an interesting read and it actually helped me cope with some things.

When I started reading this, I was having some issues with things (school, lovelife, etc.). So when I get to know Remy it's like I want to be like her. Just carefree, mean, has control over her feelings. But then, it's not easy being like her. When you have too much control over your feelings, you tend to ignore other people's feelings and you become selfish and insensitive. Sometimes you have to open up with the possibility that when you care and love someone, you will get hurt. It's better than feeling nothing at all and losing that someone. 

The romance part of this book is lacking. I liked Dexter's challenges, although sometimes I can't figure out his personality. Overall, this was an easy read and just like other Dessen books, you get to learn something about love and life. :)
