On her very first day, Brooklyn meets Will, a gorgeous and flirty boy on campus to help with move in. But is he who she thinks he is? And what about Brady, the cute stable boy? Or Jared, the former child actor with his grown-up good looks who can always make her laugh? As Brooklyn settles in at Rosewood, she’s faced with new friends, new challenges and new opportunities to make herself into the girl she always wanted to be. Whoever that might be.

This book was a little hard to get into but once you keep on reading on - you're hooked. It really describes the challenges of a teenager's life with a relatable and entertaining character. The plot is quirky and fun. This is a definite recommend to people who are facing struggles with school and people. Keep up the good work - I'm saving up to buy the series!!
