Summary: First love, broken friendships, and heartache all play a part in this evocative, voice-driven novel about Alex, a girl whose world is ripped apart when her father’s affair splits her family in two.


Alex moves with her mess of a mother to a new town, where she is befriended by hot, enigmatic Fred—and alternately flirted with and cold-shouldered by Fred’s twin sister, Adina. Others warn Alex to steer clear of the twins, whose sibling relationship is considered abnormal at best, but there’s just something about Fred—and something about Adina—that draws Alex to them and makes her want to be part of their crazy world…no matter the consequences.


My Thoughts: I really wanted to love this as I really enjoyed Nothing Like You but this one was just ok to me. We meet Alex who is new to town and her friends Fred and Adina who are twins. I know there was just something not right about them, or more about Adina. I could tell right away that Alex and Fred were a good match but throw in Adina and I know nothing good could come out of it. She was just in the way the whole time! I wanted to tell her to get her own life. Some would say she wanted to protect her brother but others would say she was just bonkers! For a long time I wasn't sure if she liked Fred or she liked Alex. I also wasn't sure if there was more to the Fred/Adina story. The book is short, the chapters are short so its easy to get sucked in and know you want to finish the book in one sitting. I liked this book, I liked the loops it throws you for, I really liked Alex and Fred, I just couldn't stand Adina and maybe thats why I didn't flat out love this one. Alex was warned to stay away from Adina and Fred so I heard someone else whose read the book, say she was warned, haha. My favorite character was probably Fred and I would have liked to see even more of him.


Overall: I liked it. It was alright. Its a short book so its worth a read.


Cover: I love the cover! Its so beautiful! I mean, it makes me want to get out my unbrella and walk down this street!
