Ultra-high-achiever Viviana Rabinovich-Lowe has always had a plan—and no room to be anything less than perfect. But her quest for perfection comes to a screeching halt when her boyfriend leaks racy pictures of her to the entire school. Making matters worse, her parents are getting divorced and now her perfect family is falling apart. For the first time, Viv feels like a complete and utter failure.
Then she gets a job working at the community pool, where she meets a new group of friends who know nothing about her past. That includes Evan, a gorgeous guy who makes her want to do something she never thought she’d do again: trust. For the first time in her life, Viv realizes she can finally be whoever she wants. But who is that? While she tries to figure it out, she learns something they never covered in her AP courses: that it’s okay to be less than perfect, because it’s our imperfections that make us who we are.
This book was absolutely PERFECT & AMAZING.
It was so real, funny, lovely and heartbreaking, all at the same time, making it the perfect kind of read.
I heard about this book a while ago, and I absolutely loved the synopsis, I just knew that I had to read it, plus it has a lovely cover <3<3<3<3<3 and I´m glad I read it, it was absolutely worth it; I read it in a day can you believe it?!?! It was just THAT GOOD.
The way Katherine wrote this story makes it impossible to put the book down.
The MC of the story, Viviana, went through a lot.
Everything seemed to be falling apart in her life. But with the help of her best friend and the new friends she made in the summer, she starts to realize that she can start over and not let one mistake define the rest of her life and must importantly, that she can trust in others again.
This book it´s about real life issues, about how one must overcome them in order to keep going in their lives and I was happy with how Viviana managed everything in her life.
If you like books about friendship, love and second chances, I think you should totally read this one <3
