I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book. It was a very sweet gentle book (for the mind to read). I laughed, I cried and yelled. I love the Characters they are relatable to your self. This book almost went into the Cliche route, but then changed it self.

This teen romance features a leading man instead of a leading lady. Brooks is competing against all of the pressures and deadlines that supposedly determine one's fate in high school. Brooks' is stressed by his determination to get into Columbia. He's arguing with his father and growing apart from his best friend. And yet he's also dancing the night away, with so many different young women he has been hired to escort. The desperation of wealthy parents who dream of their daughters experiencing the defining moments of high school is well balanced with the reality of actual daughters. Brooks' perspective and voice make this story unique among others set against the backdrop of senior-year events, SAT scores and college applications.

This book is worth a read for fans of YA - of all ages!
