Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar...and that's just how she likes it.

Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants — only what she wants may not be what she needs...

After Living Dead Girl, I’m glad to see the romantic side of Scott’s writing shining once again! Not only that, but it had the humor and satire that makes a very satisfying read.

As soon as I started reading this book I was hooked. Hannah’s voice captivated me from the start, as well as the story line. I loved the unusual family dynamics that were displayed. It was a highly used theme– embarrassing parents– but it was crafted in a totally new angle. I loved it.

Not to mention the love triangle of Josh, Finn and Hannah. And even though it’s obvious to the reader who Hannah should be going after, it takes her a while to figure it out on her own. Despite having semi-famous parents, I loved the normalcy of Hannah’s character.

Just an overall, funny, quick and charming read! I will happily be adding this to my Elizabeth Scott collection!
