The book started out as something that had the feeling of a boring wattpad book, but after awhile I couldn’t put it down and became entranced by the storyline. The characters grow on you.
Kelsey, a 16 year old girl living in Mariner’s Cove, gets a job as a busgirl to get closer to her longtime crush, Blaine. But mixed feelings occur as the summer is filled with mishaps and mistakes and a certain blue-haired boy that begins to steal her heart.
I disliked how much of an average idea it retained – one girl, two guys sort of situation. But the plot twists added a unique feel to the book; Luke and Blaine being cousins, Luke’s father, etc. I didn’t really like Kelsey’s personality, but I liked her dedication towards her brother. I liked how the whole book was written, a good balance with an appropriate passing of time stretched throughout the novel. Ending was pleasant and positive.
The plot was pretty well written, stretched out consistently throughout the book. The characters were lovable and thought-provoking, although their appearance could’ve been explained more in-depth (height, color of hair, age, what did Kelsey look like?). Humour wasn’t a main focus of the story, but some moments were included (Kelsey screaming at Frank). There was a lot of irony throughout the plot, with Luke’s accident, father, cousin, Kelsey’s feelings, her family, etc.
This book would be good for young-to-mid teen girls (age 12 – 16) who like wattpad-style books.
