Publisher's Summary

In this charming debut about first love and second chances, a young girl gets caught between the boy next door and a playboy. Perfect for fans of To All the Boys I've Loved Before.

Mansfield, Massachusetts, is the last place 17-year-old Edie Price wants to spend her final summer before college. It's the home of wealthy suburban mothers and prima donnas like Edie's cousins, who are determined to distract her from her mother's death with cute boys and Cinderella-style makeovers. She's got her own plans, and they don't include any prince charming.

But as she dives into schoolwork and getting a scholarship for college, Edie finds herself drawn to two Mansfield boys strumming for her attention: First, there's Sebastian, Edie's childhood friend and first love, who's sweet and smart and...already has a girlfriend. Then, there's Henry, the local bad boy and all-around player who's totally off limits - even if his kisses are chemically addictive.

Both boys are trouble. Edie can't help herself from being caught between them. Now, she just has to make sure it isn't her heart that breaks in the process.

Glorifying Cheating !!

For the life of me I couldn't get into this book, specially the part where it's trying to glorify cheating as "true love" .. this book was a total mess and I didn't like any character ( except for Henry because he was the most honest one )
The story is about Edie and her life when she moves to her Aunt's house and facing her childhood crush and the bad boy of the town .. she is torn in this love triangle and she have to choose which one is better for her
oh and did I mention she already kissed her friend's BOYFRIEND ?? yeah .. that happened .. Edie could rot and die for all I care she is the reason why girls don't trust each other .. GOODD so glad I finished this

The narrator was nice and I liked her performance but the story sucked bad
