First Impression: Cute
Synopsis: When River auditions for a part in an interschool performance of Romeo and Juliet, she finds herself smitten by Flynn, the boy playing Romeo. But Flynn comes from a damaged family—is he even capable of giving River what she wants? The path of true love never did run smooth.
This is real life, not a rehearsal…
200 words (or less) review: This is the first book I’ve read by Sophie McKenzie and I wish I had started with Girl, Missing instead. The book is well written, short and a nice way to spend a few hours on a Sunday but that’s about all.
Flynn’s character is hard to like at times but with the progression of the story you get to understand the reasons more and I was willing to forgive some of his quirks. I still struggled with River’s crush for him and her understanding nature. Then again maybe that’s just me – I cheered when she finally stood up to Flynn.
My friends have been raving about Sophie McKenzie and I will definitely be reading Girl, & Sister, Missing some time in the future.
