What I liked most about this book is the great plot line. Getting over a breakup/cheating significant others is hard. And it even harder when you have to watch them on a school trip! How messed up is that?? I like that through out the plot line the main character, Jessa, grows so much and learns so much. I like how she saw things differently. Some of the things she said made sense. I adored that she stood strong and got some revenge. Though she learn some of those thing did not make her feel better.
The characters of this book are very well develop. I adored the Jessa's friends who help her along the way. There were some other nasty secrets that were revealed that made me gasp so much. I am not sure how Jessa is able to handle everything but really this girl got her some back bone. I think I would have had a break down if that were me.
The love interest in this book isn't all developed but I like it like that. It left hope for the reader and hope for Jessa that their could be another love. Not all is lost, but that Jessa gain knowledge and experience. I can say that the ending of this book did leave me smiling. I adore that Jessa grew up. She never thought she see the light at the end of the tunnel but she made it.
This is a great book a love that is once had but lost. A love that she thought would stand the test of times and didn't. A great coming of age story about love and it's experiences. What is true love anyway? As Jessa begins her new life, she answers many questions she never thought she get.

I do not recommend this book. I thought it would be something fun and cute, but it was just boring and dumb. If the best friend could have actually had some creative instructions, it might have been worth it. But the instructions were in no way helpful or innovative, just the usual "list the reasons he doesn't deserve you" cliche stuff. The characters were boring and unrealistic- all of their emotions and actions were so exagerated. The girl was so pathetic, I mean I understand she was sad about her boyfriend cheating, but why would that lead you to extremes like kissing your teacher? or keep letting the whole class know how you're feeling? And the best friend really wasn't much of a friend, how could she have kissed her boyfriend and never have let her know? Basically, it was all a bunch of exagerated silliness. Nothing like Sarah Dessen whose characters are so real and believable.
