What a great story this is, full of all the teenage peer pressure, problems with parents, trying to control hormonal reactions – it has the lot!
Lex is cajoled into shoplifting a lipstick by a “friend”. It wasn’t even in a shade she would ever use! Needless to say, she was caught and her Mum worked out her punishment with the store manager – Lex would work at the store for the summer, rather than have a criminal record. How she copes with her job, her desire to play softball and relationships form the backbone of this story. Her supervisor is Noah, he is hot and attends her school but he is also ostracised by her friends. How will Lex cope with her attraction to Noah, the job, her family and life in general now her summer plans are so changed?
This is a well written, believable story with strong characters all trying to cope with life’s problems in their own way.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
