Synopsis:
"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, messy, affectionate. And every day from her rooftop perch, Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs up next to her and changes everything.

As the two fall fiercely for each other, stumbling through the awkwardness and awesomeness of first love, Jase's family embraces Samantha - even as she keeps him a secret from her own. Then something unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha's world. She's suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A transporting debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another.
Rating: 5/5

My Review:

I adored this book!! I thought it was really cute and fluffy which is what I love to read in the summer. This is my second Huntley Fitzpatrick book, and I just really love her books and her writing style. The characters are so well written and relatable. I think this is my new favourite of hers. I really did love What I Thought Was True, but I just liked this one a little bit more!

I really loved Samantha as the narrative character. I thought she was sweet and smart, and just an overall good person.Jase Garrett is one of those male characters that are too good to be true which is why you can't help but love him! I want a Jase Garrett in my life! I also love the whole Garrett family. They were all so unique and fun to read. I can't wait to read The Boy Most Likely to so that I can get more of a glimpse into the Garrett family life.

The love story between Sam and Jase was the best, of course. It was sweet and real! They had an instant connection which became first love. I also loved the storyline throughout the whole book, it was cute and sweet for the first half and then some drama happens that gets you hooked to find out what happens.

Very good book! Would highly recommend for a good summer read.
