Week 1 Review: How My Summer Went Up in Flames

From Goodreads:
First she lost her heart. Then she lost her mind. And now she's on a road trip to win back her ex. This debut novel's packed with drama and romance!

Rosie's always been impulsive. She didn't intend to set her cheating ex-boyfriend's car on fire. And she never thought her attempts to make amends could be considered stalking. So when she's served with a temporary restraining order on the first day of summer vacation, she's heartbroken—and furious.

To put distance between Rosie and her ex, Rosie's parents send her on a cross-country road trip with responsible, reliable neighbor Matty and his two friends. Forget freedom of the road, Rosie wants to hitchhike home and win back her ex. But her determination starts to dwindle with each passing mile. Because Rosie’s spark of anger? It may have just ignited a romance with someone new…

My Review:
Oh, this was just such a great, funny, wonderful book! It was pretty hilarious, because Rosie, well, there's a reason why the title contains the word "flames" and who that relates to her ex, and then she goes on this road trip, with 3 pretty cute guys!

I really didn't like her ex, but I did enjoy Mattie, Spencer and Logan as they travelled from New Jersey to Arizona. I especially liked Logan's planned itinerary, both the places that he/they wanted to go, and his unwillingness to go off of it, it was really funny!

I enjoyed their visits to some really cool places, like the diving scene in midnight, or Rosie's trip to Dollyworld! They were just so different, most of them not on the beaten path, but those places that are hidden, that need a bit of time to coax out.

Then her idea at the end, for her court date, and how to serve? That was really awesome, and that she wanted to do it, and that she planned for it, even if when she was doing it, it was rather hot, that was just really cool of her!

Really enjoyed this book, it was just really great, and I can't wait to see what Jennifer writes next!
