Synopsis (via Goodreads):
Tia and Will’s lives get flipped upside down when they’re voted Yearbook’s Biggest Flirts in this sassy novel from the author of Endless Summer and The One That I Want.
Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laidback swagger.
As the sparks start to fly, Will wants to get serious. Tia’s seen how caring too much has left her sisters heartbroken, and she isn’t interested in commitment. But pushing Will away drives him into the arms of another girl. Tia tells herself it’s no big deal…until the yearbook elections are announced. Getting voted Biggest Flirts with Will is, well, awkward. They may just be friends, but their chemistry is beginning to jeopardize Will’s new relationship—and causing Tia to reconsider her true feelings. What started as a lighthearted fling is about to get very complicated…
You see, there were parts that I absolutely LOVEDDD. But then most of the time I wanted to claw Tia's eyes out and bash her head into the wall! *hisses* She was just so fixated and scared that she did practically everything wrong :/
This book is sooo wrong! XD Tia sobs when she accidentally does well in sumfin *facepalm* And she wants Will all to herself but refuses to date him! And Will is an introverted cosmic flirter.......but only with her? o.O The flirter part, obvs :P And so he half-dates the straight-A dibby dobber Angelica, who I feel obliged to hate because I'm reading in Tia's POV xD but still flirts with Tia, and then gets mad at her everytime someone comments on their flirting *rolls eyes* #riddonkculous
But it was a seriously hilariousssss read XPP
I couldn't help becoming attached to the characters in the book because they were so flawed in their own ways that I wanted, needed, to see them truly recognise their mistakes and finally succeed. I really hope that Tia learns from and retains the life lessons she gained in the book.
There was also a serious tone to the novel. The underlying themes were quite relevant to youths in problematic circumstances and showed that mind sets cemented at a young age are quite hard to break, but you can get there and it is always possible if you put the effort in. Yesssss I'm talking about Tia XD *snorts*
So yeaaaahhh. Half the time I wanted to throw the book at the wall and yet as the story concluded, I couldn't help smiling broadly, because the characters had grown so much from the beginning, and it was such a privilege to read.......even if they're technically just charries written up on paper, in fact, especially that they're written up on paper; there's just something so magical about it and the thoughts of the author really emanate through.
I was a teensy bit peeved that we don't know for certain what happened with Twill........yeessssss my ship name ;P But I suppose the open ending was more fitting of the book *pouts* I just wish we'd been given concrete proof *sad sigh* Tho good newsss! There are more books in the series (even though they're not centred on Tia and Will *sadface*) so in any luck we'll still hear more of them xD
I wasn't sure how many stars to give Biggest Flirts, but in the end I decided to go with 3 stars :P
P.s. Aaand, leaving you with a parting gift *winks*
“Ms. Nakamoto called through the microphone, “Mr. Matthews, get off Ms. Cruz. I’m starting to sound like a broken record.”
Down the line of snare drums, Jimmy tapped his watch and said, “Seven minutes.”
*busts out laughing* I just loved that xDD
