Amy Wyse has everything—except love. She doesn’t want a boyfriend to get in the way of her dreams of college and a swimming scholarship, goals toward which she’s worked hard. But then she’s swept off her feet by Chris Shepherd, an irresistible senior from the swim team. Suddenly Amy has romance and a promising future. Or does she? As she spends more and more time with Chris, her grades plummet and her swimming deteriorates. Amy thought she could have it all—but will she be left with nothing instead?

This is a super cheesy, super classy book of love. I LOVED it! What had me was the cheesiness of love that was going on it It was all thinking about each other, putting everything off for each other. I love first love books so if anything the cheesiness made it better. You first love you will always remember. Amy meets a boy on her swim team and falls in love quickly. Leaving everything and anything behind. She soon realizes that homework won't finish itself and has to put her foot down when it comes to Chris. She always has to decide where there future stands. What I like most about this book was the choice Amy had to make. Her mother, after a bad relationship always told her to be practical. Don't think about boys think about your future. Amy has to fight with her mom constantly over this issue. I felt for Amy. I knew she loved him but her mother always made her choose. It aggravated me. She made is difficult on her. Amy listen to heart and made the right choice. The book was really short. But the way the story flowed and ended I love it.

Amy Wyse lives with her busy mom and her busy schedule. It is her junior year of school and she is studying for the SATs, getting involved in tons of extra-curricular activities, and working hard to keep her grades as high as possible. There is no room for boyfriends in her life. But all that changes when in a moment when her long time friend unexpectedly kisses her. To add to this unknown territory, Amy realizes she is not attracted to her friend, but rather to Chris Shepherd from swim team. As luck would have it, he is interested in her too, and a relationship soon blossoms. However, spending time with Chris means Amy is spending less time on her school work, and her grades start to slip. Amy needs to quickly figure out how to balance these new feelings with her already full life if she wants to continue to succeed! This novel is short in length, and I read it in one sitting. The first thing I did when I finished was close my eyes and revel in the romance. SO ROMANTIC! It only took a few pages for me to fully dive into the plot. Chris is completely dreamy. The perfect balance of bad boy and total gentleman. Amy is very easy to identify with. Callie West writes a raw teen voice complete with confusion and hope. The details in her mom being both a comfort to her and a burden on her existence will ring true for many readers. It may even help teens cope with the stress of wanting it all in high school - the great boyfriend, the sports super-star, and the college career. Though readers may be disappointed with the sudden ending, this is a tender-hearted book sure to speak to every girl out there who's ever been in love before.

This is a good and realistic book about a girl struggling to make sure she gets into a good college, and to deal with a first love too. It's a great book and realistic for many people worry about college and love daily.
