Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist meets Easy A in this hilariously realistic story of sneaking out, making out, and playing in a band.
After catching their bandmates in a compromising position, 16-year-old Los Angelenos Riley and Reid become painfully aware of the romance missing from their own lives. And so a pact is formed: They'll both try to make something happen with their respective crushes and document the experiences in a shared notebook.
While Reid struggles with the moral dilemma of adopting a dog to win over someone's heart, Riley tries to make progress with Ted Callahan, who she's been obsessed with forever - his floppy hair! His undeniable intelligence! But suddenly cute guys are popping up everywhere. How did she never notice them before? With their love lives going from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, Riley and Reid realize the results of their pact may be more than they bargained for.
This was my first audiobook, but not my first Amy Spalding book. I didn't realize she narrated the book when I downloaded it - it was PERFECT! I loved the story: Riley and Reid's hilarious banter combined with their separate searches for love perfectly. I laughed the entire time at the turns of phrase and turns of plot. I listened while driving to and from work and was incredibly annoyed that I had to get out of the car (and sometimes I didn't.) There's also an insider's view of Los Angeles, awesome music references (is there an online playlist??) and lots of kissing, of course!! And the kissing scenes are hot! Highly recommend! Spalding is one of my favorite YA writers, and I can wait for her next audiobook!
