Summary: Ally Ryan, come on down to the Jersey Shore and forget your troubles!
Have you recently been humiliated in front of your friends and family at your former best friend's birthday party? Was your almost boyfriend partly responsible for that humiliation by withholding some vital information about where your estranged father is? Did you come home to find said estranged father sitting on your stoop?
If so, then it sounds like you could use a vacation! The Jersey Shore is the place to be. Your mother may be living with her boyfriend of only a few months, but at least the stunt Shannen pulled has put some of your friends back in your court. Even so, you're still angry and what better way to get over Jake than to blow off some steam with local guy, Cooper? People will hardly recognize your new attitude, but the old one wasn't getting you anywhere, so who cares!
Jake Graydon, an exciting opportunity is waiting for you in the service industry!
Are your grades so low your parents have grounded you for the summer? Did you the girl you really like unceremoniously leave you behind? Would you rather eat dirt than see your friends again? Then a job at the local coffee shop is just the ticket! Surprisingly, Ally's father is the new manager so you get to be reminded of her nearly every day. Maybe it's time to start flirting with your best friend's ex or even taking school a bit more seriously. Especially when you finally see Ally and she's hanging around with some loser and it's couldn't be more clear that she is over you.
Have a great summer!
Review: What an amazing sequel! I'm pretty sure this one was even better than She's So Dead to Us!
Ally and Jake are currently estranged. And it isn't good because they have this crazy love/hate relationship going on. A few times I just want to slap both of them, and scream at them to just to make up and just kiss! But my cries seemed to go unheard.
I'm pretty sure Ally was even more special to me during this one. She was going through an even tougher time. She felt so real and just like she should have. Scott really knows how to write dimensional, amazing characters. Ally was no exception and neither was Jake. Swoon.
That boy was just radiating hotness. (I really hope that didn't sound crazy, but he was!) He and Ally are perfect for each other. But who knows how that's going to work out.
I loved following both Ally and Jake. Their alternating perspectives are so believable! Both of their stories were so special and fun. And quite drama filled.
And that ENDING! Wow! Talk about a cliffhanger. And all us sorry readers are going to have to wait another year!? That's so unfair. But I'm sure it will be just as amazing as this one was! So it'll be worth the wait.
Another great book by Scott.
