Even though I haven't gotten this book from the library, I own the book and I must say it is one of my all time favs. I totally recommend this book to anyone, especially teens, who love a mixture of romance and comedy. This book is way better then the movie!

Not sure if this is exactly fair or not but I watched the movie on Netflix and at first I found it so bad that I turned it off. But then I decided to give it another try. If you can get past the gross parts (you'll see what I mean), it's an okay movie. Reminded me a tiny bit of Clueless (which is a thousand times better) probably due to the main character narrating it. I can't speak for the book as far as how accurately it's portrayed, but the movie actually held my interest and had some really cute parts. Not a lot of humor, but overall I enjoyed it.

Cute book, though the fact that the author is a teenager is rather painfully obvious. Quick, forgettable but still enjoyable read.

A lengthy book, the plot was repetitive and the characters often got into meaningless fights which didn't make sense to me... the book was just childish for a high school junior to read. But the author wrote this book when she was fifteen I believe? Which explains a lot. The movie was better.

This movie had the worst storyline it was sloppy all over the place the setting was off and all around not the best directed. The acting was not very strong and it just didn’t make sense. It was about two best friends Lee and Elle, and Elle likes Lee’s brother Noah but can’t date him because they have a rule that you can’t date each other’s siblings i thinks that's not a very good rule in all honesty and doesn't actually make any sense. I didn’t enjoy this movie at all and I don’t recommend it to anyone unless you want to spend 2 hours watching something that is boring. I rate this movie 1 out of 5. @movieslayer123 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Such a good love story, also gives you almost a life lesson sort of feel with Elles mistakes.

“Some people say you’ll fall in love, and that’s the person you’ll spend forever with; the person who’ll know your deepest and darkest secrets and still love you even then, the person who’ll know exactly the right thing to say to make you laugh or smile or feel better. They’ll be the person who, no matter what, you can’t live without.”
