The View From The Top by Hillary Frank

Summary: Tobin won't miss anything about life in Normal, Maine when he leaves for conservatory... except his dream girl.

Jonah would give up his player ways- and his best friend- for a chance with his best friend's girlfriend.

Lexi desperately hopes that her crush will see her in a new light, but fears that her love will remain unrequited.

Matt is anxiously clinging to the past, afraid that he won't be a part of his girlfriend's brighter future.

Mary-Tyler wishes people would look past her weight and wealth and accept her for who she it.

And then there's Anabelle, the one who ties them all together. As she sorts out her love life and tries to make sense of her increasingly complicated friendships Anabelle begins to question how well she knows herself.

With wry observations and quirky humor, critically acclaimed novelist Hillary Frank gives life to six unique teens whose voices intertwine to tell the story of a shared summer of love, family and friendship.

My Thoughts: Wow! I did not expect this book to be sooo good and to enjoy it as much as I did. I loved the alternating chapters as well. I liked knowing what each character thought. We meet Annabelle who connects all the other characters in this book. She is dating Matt, but she has feelings for Jonah but Tobin has feelings for her. Than there's Mary Tyler who has secrets all of her own and the same with Lexi. This book was really good. Who does she end up with? Matt? Tobin? Jonah? Or someone else entirely? We get to go through each characters feelings and discover how they think. My favorite scene was either the sand scene between Annabelle and Mary Tyler or the Ferris wheel scene towards the end of the book. This book was a favorite of mine!

Overall: This book was a definite good one! Fans of Susane Colasanti will probably like this. It had the same vibe. I enjoyed it A LOT!

Cover: Love It. At first, I didn't think it related to the story but there is a Ferris wheel scene in the book. The cover is really pretty!
