My initial thoughts of this book would be a cute, “girl who hangs with boys and ends up liking one of them” kind of vibe, which I love about YA books, they’re fun, cheeky, hilarious and reflect my own memories as a young adult. Sadly this book didn’t quite hit the nail on the head for me…
For me it seemed to portray a tomboyish girl Toni who basically uses her guy friends in order to run a dating business for her own benefit of earning money. Not the best way to go about earning a bit of pocket money!
I didn’t really connect with Toni, I don’t consider myself a “girly girl” or a tomboy but I felt her character was exaggerated a great deal with the whole burping thing- I’m certain everyone burps once in a while! She didn’t seem like a nice friend to have around and everything seems to centre around her even though her friends weren’t really what I would call friends, they seemed offish at times which didn’t really help the characters build solid relationships.
I felt that nothing really grabbed me, I wanted this book to have more bite and sass to it! More so, it felt like I was more or less reading about their lives and not feeling part of them.
A promising plot but for me nothing that made me want to not put it down unfortunately.
