This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a book that all teenage girls, including myself, could relate too. Though my mother is not dead, and my father is not running for office, I am too 16, have a group of close friends like Kerri, Jessica, and Erin, and also am starting to date. What made the book so great was Luke. Luke seemed like such a great guy for Maya and a great guy in general. I want a Luke. This book is great, I just wish there was a continuation to this book. I would love to read about how Maya and Luke's relationship works out and if her father wins. You have to read this book, I know you will love it.
