    Okay so far, but...

    This book is okay. I have not finished it yet, but that's because I got pretty bored maybe ten pages into it. Maybe it's just that I expected more from it. Less about tea and more about romance. I don't mean to offend all the girls who like this book, but it's a little slow, and it never really explains why Zach kisses Annie in the first place. I didn't think the person making bad comments on The Steeping Leaf was who it was. I was expecting more grom this book. It seems like Annie's life revolves around the contest. I just wish that the book went a little faster and that there were more answers. Plus it really leaves you hanging at the end. It doesn't say what happens when Annie goes into highschool, or how her trip went. If you would like a book about a girl who obsesses over her scones, a girl who is suddenly in love with the boy she used to hate, and a girl trying to work out friend problems while hoping to win a contest, then this is for you. But even if you do, I think you'd be wasting your money. His book is okay, but I know there's better out there. Sorry.
