My Rating:

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 another 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. . . .

Once again, Elizabeth Scott has created a world so painfully funny and a cast of characters so heartbreakingly real that you'll love being a part of it from unexpected start to triumphant finish.

Hannah is the teenage daughter of semi-famous parents. She lives with her mother while her father only knows her when he needs her for his reality shows’ slipping ratings.

Hannah is your typical teenage girl when it comes to crushing on Josh, the popular boy in school. She does all she can to get him to notice her. And just when she thinks she has accomplished this, he’s truly just trying to get next to her famous mother.

All the while the true guy for her has been under her nose all along. The relationship she had with Finn was cute and endearing. It was sweet the way her seemed to fumble over himself when it came to Hannah. It was obvious from the start to the reader that Finn, not Josh, was the guy for her.

I would have liked to see their relationship progress a little more, but I enjoyed it all the same.

The narrator did a nice job of catching the teen voices of genders. It wasn’t to over the top, but not that memorable either.
