Lexi Middleton has been socially invisible to her classmates, but starting her junior year, that’s going to change. First, she’s determined to hook a boyfriend, ensuring dates with flowers and possible kisses on the doorstep. Second, she wants to be a writer for the school paper, even though it freaks her out to think of everyone judging her by her punctuation and metaphors.
High school is difficult enough—keeping up her grades, dealing with increasing sibling rivalry, and trying to stay out of the way of her personal nemesis, Amberlee—but when Lexi catches the eye of her long-time crush, she also becomes the focus of mean-girl tactics.
Caught between who she was and who she wants to be, Lexi must decide how to confront a bully, and choose who to let into her heart.
High school can be so hard! This story follows Lexi with her ups and downs with her sister, her friends and her love life. This is such a cute story and so funny. I loved reading about Lexi and finding out if her love life was really as pathetic as she probably thought it was. PS, Gabe is my favorite character by far... Such a cute high school boy. - Goodreads
