It took  awhile for me to really enjoy what I was reading in this book.   But at about the halfway point, Pack drew the story together and I understood and enjoyed....the rest of the story, (to coin a phrase).  I rather enjoyed the chapters individually up to that halfway mark, but I questioned what the point was and if I would get it.    And then I did.    The story became cohesive, understandable, relatable and enjoyable. Pack's protagonist, Kayla, was good at art in many different venues.   She found her peace in art and in doing it well.    She was a teenager finding her way and in this story, she "cheated" in her photography.  She was also cheated out of a t-shirt design and sought revenge.   She learned from her boyfriend's band that her revenge plan wasn't going to work....everybody cheats or lies.   Her character developed beautifully in this story and when she finally yielded to the pressure and walked away from the project she was involved in..her friends came to her assistance and saved the day.   Well at least to the point, Kayla could continue on with the finishing touches needed to bring the project to fruition. It was indeed a charming story and it left me chuckling.   I  loved the ending and I loved the smile it put on my face.   If I had to use one word to describe this story, I would use---hopeful.
