This was my first book that I've read by Meg Cabot. I was open minded about the book and was actually blown away! I was laughing and enjoying the book all the way to the end. I was skeptical at first about reading it because of the way that it was laid out; but after reading the emails, I was enjoying every minute. Worth the read. It will keep you wanting more.
