Don't be fooled by this corny or superficial title. This book has depth and meaning. It deals with the very real struggle of a girl trying to lead her life the way she wants to after recovering from an abusive relationship with an ex boyfriend.

My daughter asked me to buy it for her and she says "awesome book"! She wants to know if there will be another in the series!

Caitlin McCourt knew what she wanted and she intended to get it – even if her mom didn’t agree to it. Caitlin loved singing, especially the Opera and she would do everything to enter Miami High School of the Arts.

She actually used to be fat – really fat – but she went on a fat camp and shed at least 35 pounds. Then she became a pretty blond girl and eventually got a boyfriend. Too late when she realized, his boyfriend was from Hell.

Nick may have been wickedly hot, has nice car, brought flowers occasionally and even wrote poetry. But beneath that façade, Nick actually hit Caitlin, he critiqued her singing and reiterated that no one ever wanted to be friends with her except him.

Caitlin met new friends, Sean & Gigi and they were supportive of her. But her mom didn’t think she’s good enough. Her mom was a little oddball – she chose to dress like a teen-ager, way slicker and shorter than Caitlin’s clothes, much to her daughter’s dismay. Next thing she knew, her mom started dating another man, who was not only balding, but was also married to another woman. Caitlin didn’t know anymore how to deal with her life.

I admired Caitlin for her perseverance to go for that something that she aspires to be. True, a lot of girls prefer to call themselves Diva but they do not know the extent of the word. As much as possible, Caitlin, a product of broken family – doesn’t want to ask for anyone’s help if she can manage herself.

With her father refusing to give alimony or child support, and her mom trying to get hitched with every man with lots of penny, and with an ex-boyfriend who used to beat her up, Caitlin’s dream of being an opera singer is the one that burns the flame in her heart.

I also liked Sean’s character – helpful and down-to-earth, but I was surprised when I learned about his true preference. I thought Caitlin & Sean look good together, but then, I’m wrong. And her best friend Gigi, was the wind beneath her wings, however eccentric she seemed to be.

Overall, I give props to Alex Flinn for this fine work of art, venturing to something more mature than in her usual fantasy books. I am yet to read Breathing Underwater, the story of how Caitlin’s ex – Nick became angst-ridden and girl friend beater. Looking forward to reading it one day!

This book is a realistic high school coming of age story. I love seeing how the main character Caitlin grows through the novel. There are touchy subjects, abuse and adultery but they are pretty brief overviews and not too detailed. No language. She really obsesses about her weight for a large portion in the beginning and thankfully she lets it go toward the end, part of the growing. There's a lot of musical and operatic references. Her online journal sections use letters and text abbreviations, (2day, U, No thx) which kind of made her more realistic for me as a high schooler, but I know some people have serious issues with that. The romance ended up not being a romance and focused more on her growing by herself. I had a really hard time liking her mom, even toward the end. It was a smooth, easy read and I got through it quickly. There's another one by Alex Finn, Breathing Underwater, about Caitlin during her time with Nick during the abuse. I'm considering reading that one, once my TO-READ list is much smaller

The main character is just so shallow. All the characters are petty and shallow, obsessed with looks, weight, and external achievements. I don't think this sends a good message to girls--or to any readers. Teenagers deserve more substantial, meaningful books. I doubt Ms Finn is capable of writing one.
This is one of the best young adult books I've read! Narrated by sixteen-year-old Caitlin, there is a ton of excellent dialogue to break up any pretentious adhesion to a stream of consciousness monologue. We are privy to Caitlin's online journal, as well as her thoughts in italics. This grrrl is real and funny--she thinks like I do. Aside from growing up, becoming one's own person, and `getting along with your mother', other issues brought to light include battering, dead-beat dads, and peer pressure bullying. Characters are realistic and well-developed, situations are believable everyday occurrences (if not often desirable), and although resolutions to the situations are somewhat too neat and tidy, it makes for a quick and very satisfying read. On the strength of this book, even on the first few pages, I would read anything that Alex Flinn has to offer.
