This is a very sweet, girl positive book. Several things about it bugged me like the whole Lucas/Landon thing, and the guy's horrific past not being dealt with until the very end. But both of those things can really be blamed on the first person perspective.
But even when this book annoyed me, I kept coming back to it because it had heart and something to say. It wasn't just a march towards a happily ever after. Both people had some serious stuff they had to deal with first, and the book wasn't afraid to go there, which I appreciated. And the ending rocks, so there's that too.
