Imagine being a teenage girl and going to live on an Island with your best friends for the summer. It sounds like paradise to me! Until you factor in the responsibility of a budget, dealing with four people living in a small space, and trying to rein in the occasional wild party.

I'm not sure many teenagers could handle it, just like Jen. She was looking forward to a relaxing holiday with her friends before they went their separate ways to college, and, not surprisingly, she had to deal with the unexpected. To be honest, Jen bothered me a little, and she wasn't a character that I had anything in common with.

These types of books, the beach reads that you don't really mind if you get wet, or accidentally spatter with sunscreen, are meant to be a quick and relaxing. That being said, they are not exactly known for in-depth revelations, and don't require much brain power. This book was a cute, fast read, but not something I would read for a second time, and so I give this book a score of 2.5 masks out of 5.
