From The Back: Amy (a.k.a. Bird) seems to have the perfect life: loving parents, a hot boyfriend, the best friend ever. She even writes an online advice column, full of Top Tips, to help other teens take control of their lives. But after a new guy shows up at school, Bird can’t seem to follow her own wisdom.
Pete is the consummate bad boy. He’s everything Bird is not: wild, unambitious and more than a little dangerous. Although she knows he’s trouble, Bird can’t stay away. And the more drawn she is to Pete, the more cracks are revealed in her relationship with Griffin, her doting boyfriend. Meanwhile, her parents’ marriage is also fracturing, possibly for good.
Bird is way out of her comfort zone. All it takes is one mistake, one momentary loss of control, for her entire future to be blown away . . . (From Good Reads)
My Review: I was lucky enough to win this book during a chat with the author, she's fabulous by the way. And so is this book. I was pulled in immediately, and couldn't put the book down. There are parts in this book that I believe every girl is able to relate to, mainly the advice column that Bird writes, the little bites of questions and advice are things that even in the past I've found myself looking for help on. The book also touches on how one thing can make your world spin out of control, but also that you can no control everything even if you try to. I loved this book, right down to the very last page and it made me feel things as I read. Truly it is a good book, and I highly recommend it.
