Rose Zarelli has big plans for sophomore year—everything is going to be different. This year, she’s going to be the talented singer with the killer voice, the fabulous girl with the fashionista best friend, the brainiac who refuses to let Jamie Forta jerk her around...

 ...but if she’s not careful, she’s also going to be the sister who misses the signals, the daughter who can only think about her own pain, the “good girl” who finds herself in mid-scandal again (because no good deed goes unpunished) and possibly worst of all...the almost-girlfriend.

When all else fails, stop looking for love and go find yourself.

This book picks up a few months after where we left off in the first book. It is now the beginning of sophomore year. Rose and Tracy are friends again. Rose and her mother are having problems because of the memorial site for her father. They are in weekly therapy session. Rose and Jamie haven’t spoken to each other since the end of the last book.

There are definitely emotions in this book. Lots of things happen between Jaime, Peter (Rose’s brother), Regina, and Tracy, and Rose’s mom. I have never been the biggest fan of her mom and this book just propels that feeling. She is a therapist and sometimes acts like that toward Rose and that drives me nuts. This is not your common romance novel. This definitely has some raw emotions

Rose has a ton of character development in this book. She discovers so many things about herself and finally finds where she should be and what makes her comfortable. As it says in the synopsis, Rose has learned some things and is determined to make a new Rose. She learns that instead of creating a new Rose, she needs to just be herself.
We are also introduced to some new characters in this book. Holly, Robert's new LA girlfriend that is way to beautiful to be with him, and Conrad, Regina's gay brother. Just to name a couple. So many things happen to propel the story with those two new characters. I really enjoyed both of them although Conrad could be sort of an ass.

I loved this book just as much as the first novel in the series. I was so excited when I realized I was getting the chance to review this just as I did for the first one. The only thing that worries me is that it looks like the third book isn’t a final thing yet. I must know what happens!

On a side note.. I always feel like my reviews for books that continue on a series are so short because I'm afraid of spoiling anything.

 My Rating:
