Week 32 Review: The Last Best Kiss

From Goodreads:
Anna Eliot is tired of worrying about what other people think. After all, that was how she lost the only guy she ever really liked, Finn Westbrook.

Now, three years after she broke his heart, the one who got away is back in her life.

All Anna wants is a chance to relive their last kiss again (and again and again). But Finn obviously hasn't forgotten how she treated him, and he's made it clear he has no interest in having anything to do with her.

Anna keeps trying to persuade herself that she doesn't care about Finn either, but even though they've both changed since they first met, deep down she knows he's the guy for her. Now if only she can get him to believe that, too....

With her signature wit and expertly authentic teen voice, Claire LaZebnik (the author of fan favorites Epic Fail and The Trouble with Flirting) once again breathes new life into a perennially popular love story. Fans of Polly Shulman, Maureen Johnson, and, of course, Jane Austen will love this irresistibly funny and romantic tale of first loves and second chances. 

My Review:
This was a really great and fun book! It didn't quite make the level that Epic Fail did for me, but it would be really hard to do that since it went to the rare very top level, and this book made the next level.

The friends in this book, they were really awesome to read about surrounded by everything that was going on! That she and Finn had been dating and she kept it secret from her friends-and rebuffed him for them, and then he came back? Yeah.

This was for me, a book about family and friends, loved ones. There was the whole situation with Finn, and then there were her friends, and also running along that, were her family's stories-her dad's relationship with her sister's friend, and her other sister's romantic relationship and how that was going. Really, stuff that happens in real life, just so great!

I really enjoyed watching these characters grow up, learning from their experiences, like getting high and diving into the shallow end of the pool, and having to go to the hospital. But I also enjoyed the happy endings, having the people be together who should, like Anna and Finn! So awesome!

This was just a really fun and light book, and just makes me want to reread Epic Fail now!
