Juli Baker devoutly believes in three things: the sanctity of trees (especially her beloved sycamore), the wholesomeness of the eggs she collects from her backyard flock of chickens, and that someday she will kiss Bryce Loski. Ever since she saw Bryce's baby blues back in second grade, Juli has been smitten. Unfortunately, Bryce has never felt the same. Frankly, he thinks Juli Baker is a little weird--after all, what kind of freak raises chickens and sits in trees for fun? Then, in eighth grade, everything changes. Bryce begins to see that Juli's unusual interests and pride in her family are, well, kind of cool. And Juli starts to think that maybe Bryce's brilliant blue eyes are as empty as the rest of Bryce seems to be. After all, what kind of jerk doesn't care about other people's feelings about chickens and trees? -Summary From Goodreads
This is such a CHARMING read! I loved it! Absolutely and truly loved it!The characters are so well developed that they seem real and the plot is hilarious! I want to thank Amanda for sending it to me...Thank you! Along with the great characters and plot, I loved how the author switched point of views. Now I know this isn't new and many authors do this but the difference is that this author re-does the same scene from the other point of view. And as the reader, you get to see how one scene looked two different ways and how each character felt and thought. I thought that was brilliant! So, I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a cute, hilarious, quick, beautifully done romance book! Has it come through how much I loved this book?
