Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott


Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar... and that's just how she likes it.

Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about the other guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants- only what she wants may not be what she needs...

Okay, I apologize for using the description off the back of the book, but my creative juices just aren't flowing. Anyways, I had heard raving reviews about Elizabeth Scott, but for some reason this book just didn't amaze me. If I had a word for it, it'd be "Meh." I'm hoping Elizabeth Scott will surprise me when I read another one of her books. So, overall the plot was pretty great, the idea was there. There were lots of unexpected twists and turns like *SPOILER ALERT* The guy she was crushing on having the hots for her mom.*END SPOILER* But the delivery just wasn't right, there was nothing "special" about her writing. And I could have loved her characters more, especially Finn, if she wasn't lacking in the delivery. Because Finn was like a cute puppy dog, and I really liked him. Also, the book was very short, 215 pages, so I think it was just difficult for her to pack everything in to that small amount of pages, everything just went so fast. In conclusion, the book had the potential to be great, but it just didn't amaze me.

Better luck next time,
