I'll bottom-line this review: I loved this book!
Being a fan of paranormal and fantasy, I haven't read a ton of contemporary YA, so I wasn't sure what to expect when beginning TA TA FOR NOW. I met the author, Bethany Lopez, through Twitter, and I picked up this book as well as its sequel, xoxoxo, with an interest in checking out her writing. I'm so glad that I did!
Melissa is a fourteen-year-old girl just starting high school. The story is told in the form of a journal, helping add authenticity to Melissa's voice throughout the book. The reader follows Melissa as she truly enters young adulthood, experiencing everything from that nerve-wracking first day of high school to snagging the boy she's crushed on for more than a year...and learning that not everything she wants is something she can--or should--have.
I found myself at turns laughing loudly and tearing up, and those are both signs of excellent storytelling. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a fast-paced, engaging read with real characters who leave you eager to move on to the sequel to see what happens next.
