When life gives you a blank canvas, make art.
Sloane Whitaker hates everything about moving to Texas. She hates leaving behind her friends and half her family in New York, starting over senior year at Austin's NextGen Academy, and having to say she lives in Texas. Most of all, she hates that it's all her fault. If she wants to earn her way back to the Big Apple, she has to prove she can still be the perfect daughter.
Which means no vandalism art, no trouble at school, and absolutely no Tru Dorsey, her serial screw-up neighbor, who loves nothing more than pushing her buttons.
But from the moment he vaults onto the roof outside her bedroom, there is something about him that makes her want to break every rule. Suddenly it's not the ten things she hates about Tru that are at the top of her list. It's the ten reasons she doesn't want to be without him.
It was so fantastic to read this book! I've loved Tera Lynn Childs books, and this was was just so great! It was the first contemporary book of hers that I know of, but otherwise has all the other elements in a Tera Lynn Childs book, great romance, and a good sense of humour and fun!
I enjoyed Sloane and Tru a lot! They both had their issues, Sloane with the event that took her and her mom to Austin, Tru with the way that his dad was. Tru was a harder to read, but Sloane knew that she didn't want to hang out with Tru because he was trouble.
I really enjoyed the school, while I don't get art, this seems like it'd be a great school to go to if you were someone that did, and that created art. And the idea that this series is going to focus on this school, these students, is really fascinating!
There was a really great mystery in this book. Well, two-what Sloane did to cause the move, and then whomever was setting her up at NextGen. The way that they caught her was pretty ingenious plan, and yeah that the truth came out!
This was such a fantastic book, and I can't wait to read more about this school of characters in the series to come!
