Seventeen, fashion-obsessed, and gay, Abby Ives has always been content playing the sidekick in other people's lives. While her friends and sister have plunged into the world of dating and romances, Abby's been happy to focus on her plus-size style blog and her dreams of taking the fashion industry by storm. When she lands an internship at her favorite boutique, she's thrilled to take a step toward her dream career. Then she falls for her fellow intern, Jordi Perez. Hard. And now she's competing against the girl she's kissing to win the coveted paid job at the end of the internship.

I read this book a few weeks ago and loved it, so was thrilled to see an audiobook version as that is my favorite way to re-read books. I had such a specific voice for Abbie in my head, though, I was a little worried about how the narrator would match up. Cassandra was PERFECTION. She caught all the little nuances of tone that made the book so funny, and so sweet, and the character voices were different enough they were recognizable, without distracting with vocal gymnastics some books have. This definitely goes onto my list of comfort audiobooks.
