Book Review: Every Girl Does It by Rachel Van Dyken

Amanda turned down Preston's prom invitation in front of her entire high school, but that was eight years ago.

Somehow, her past mistakes always have a way of catching up with her, and making her pay. Amanda's sarcastic wit mixed with Preston's insufferable ego make sparks fly in more than one way.

Preston, against his better judgment can't fight the desire to get under Amanda's skin and mercilessly tease her, but when that teasing becomes flirting, and flirting becomes something dangerously more, neither of them are prepared for the adventure that follows.

I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. Amanda was asked to prom in front of the whole school by a nerd. She turned him down. Fast forward ten years. Amanda runs into Preston again, only now he's a buff, cute (hot) fireman and she's definitely feeling some remorse for the high school rejection. Maybe it's not too late to change her mind...

I love how flustered and crazy Amanda gets. Sometimes she's pretty much outright mean, but Preston leaves her so confused and she just doesn't know how to handle it. I love how Preston immediately knows how to set Amanda off. He knows when to be gentle and caring and when to kick the teasing mode up a notch. There were some pretty crazy and funny situations (Brad and Angelina).

I probably read way too into things sometimes, but it made me think that you should be kind and nice to everyone because contrary to popular belief (ha ha), high school doesn't last forever and people change. Looks and popularity aren't everything.

Content: some kissing, but clean!!

*****--5 stars.
