"Girlfriend Material" is a great read. This book has the right amount of romance and drama. Katie gets a change of plans for summer vacation. Instead of going to Salt Lake to visit her dad, Katie now has to go across the U.S. to Cape Cod with her mom so that her mother can visit an old friend and her family. When Katie arrives things didn't go as planned. Her mom's friend's daughter, Sarah who was her friend at a young age now seems like she wants nothing to do with her. As days pass on Katie is starting to figure out that being in Cape Cod isn't as bad. Katie even thinks that maybe Sarah isn't such an annoying New Yorker. Also things start to heat up between Adam and Katie after the game of golf with his friends. Also maybe giving Natasha, a 13 year old girl tennis lessons isn't the worst thing in the world but for 20 dollars an hour, Katie hasn't even considered backing down. As you get into the novel it will make you wonder, and as you read more you won't be able to put this book down. This book is a very decent book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good dramatic book. I am less than half way done and already I don't want to put it down.

Book talk:Family conflicts meet summer romance in this funny but realistic story. For just a moment, put yourself in the role of Kate, the main character in Girlfriend Material. Pretend you are 16 and just starting what you hope is a summer vacation that includes your favorite things. (If you really were Kate, that would mean looking forward to a peaceful summer writing, reading, and playing tennis.) Now imagine your plans are jerked out from under you like an old rug. Not only do you not get to do anything YOU want to do, but you are also stuck riding across the country with your mother so she can spend time with some old friends at their summer house in Cape Cod. (You hardly speak to her through the entire 3000 mile drive.) What could make it worse? Actually, quite a few things can make it worse. The reason your mom wants to travel to the east coast is because she wants a separation from your dad. Then there's the daughter of your mom's friends who makes it very clear that she would rather YOU not interrupt HER summer. And what else could go wrong? Well, how about your mom flirting with an old friend who ALSO just happens to come visit the same summer house in Cape Cod? And have I mentioned that your best friend back home is super busy having fun with a new boyfriend and hardly has the time of day for you? What could possible save you from this horrible summer? Well, let's just say that there is a pretty cute guy named Adam who just might consider you as girlfriend material, even if you don't.

Best book that I have ever read in my 13 years of living. This author has taken teen novels to a whole new level with this book. I could actually picture what was going on in my head for a moment I thought I was watching a movie,thats how visual it was for me.

So after reading all the comments and hearing how wonderful this book was I thought why not. well ladies and i guess some gentlemen if your into that (i won't judge) this book is absolutely the cutest. I highly recommend this to any teenager who loves cute romances. (by the way I am 16 and a junior in high school -- but i still feel like any teenager could relate)

Cute, easy read. A little heavy on the classical references at times.
