I would describe this book as like reality, but funnier. It’s like a humorous, slightly snarky friend telling you about her day. And it’s awesome. I really liked the the characters seemed believable, both our heroine Waverly and her best friends, because of both their reactions and the things that happen to them. Waverly deals with everything from guy trouble to a distant father to career decisions, and all in a way I could relate to. Initially, I found Waverly a little bit annoying, because she’s not very self-confident. But she really grows throughout the novel and I like that in a character. This is also where the instant love interest happens, but in this book it was really just an instant crush, which isn’t so unbelievable after all. Overall, a solid opening to the series which got me firmly in like with Waverly.This review first published on Doing Dewey.
