This was such a relaxing, fun read! The characters are crazy. The story is hilarious. This book is insane!

So, April had the opportunity to live with her friend Vi because her parents will move to Cleveland. She requested that she should not go with them because it's in the middle of the school year. Well, request granted. It was not because her parents are not strict but because April and Vi lied, bigtime. So what do these girls did when they have no parents' supervision? I tell you what, CRAZY THINGS.

April as the main character is great. Sometimes, she just go with the flow but other times, she stood up for herself. I liked it when she saved their cat from dying. I kind of hate her when she played blind and dumb when it was so obvious that her boyfriend cheated on her. I actually pity her somehow. She prepared so much for the night she and Noah (her boyfriend) will going to have sex for the first time! And then she would know later that she have STD. STD!

I like Vi. She might be obnoxious and stubborn but she was really a great friend. I did not agree about their lying but everything was just so much fun that I forget the lying part. Vi's commitment issues were quite understandable so I didn't really blame her for being afraid.

Argh. I knew it! I knew there's a reason why I didn't like Noah that much at the first place. I just want to punch guys like that. It was so infuriating. He's such a jerk telling April those things when in fact, he's the one who cheated. I hate cheaters. I mean, who doesn't?

I also liked the other characters in the book simply because they made the story more fun to read. They have interesting characteristics that certainly make readers like them.

If you guys want to laugh so hard until you feel like you might die, then this book is for you! This is not for those who want deep, meaningful plot. This book is just so good to relieve stress. Okay, that is all. ( )

This book is really good. It's a different kind of book. It was a quick read and had me interested the whole time. This is one of the few books I read where I actually love the end. I love Hudson and I'm so glad April is with him at the end of the book. Hudson is such a good guy. I didn't really like Noah. I felt he got jealous too much and I can't believe he cheated on April. I also loved the main character. I recommend this book. I give it five stars! ( )

I was really looking forward to reading this book, but it was definitely a disappointment. It was a very quick read, but only because it lacked any substance.

The main character was not believable at all. She was definitely not relatable. Not only would I never have done ANYTHING she did, but I don't even know anyone who would do anything she did.

The plot was shallow and disjointed, many things made no sense, and the character motivations were convenient to the plot, but weren't anything realistic.
