Colette Rodriguez hates rules. Just ask her perfect, older, gorgeous, rule-following sister, Jana.
But now that Jana’s away at college and Colette’s a sophomore in high school, things are going to change. She’s gotta find a way to get out from under her sister’s shadow.
The problem is, everyone, including the boys, remembers perfectly-hot-Jana and they constantly compare Colette to her.
With Jana finally out of the house, Colette decides that sophomore year is the best time to make her mark on the world. She vows to follow the rules, although rule-following has never been her strong point. When a teacher asks Colette to lead a STEM Mentoring project, working with middle school kids, Colette sees her chance to stand out, though she doubts her ability to take charge.
Enter Will Gamen, junior football star. Looking for a club to boost his chances of a college scholarship, Will signs up for STEM. From the first meeting, when Will inadvertently takes over, Colette wonders if he should really be the person to run the project. And, in an even more confusing turn of events, Will starts to drop by her house for unplanned study dates. After the two spend one fabulous Saturday night together, he suddenly backs off.
But Colette and Will started out as friends and she’s determined not to let one meaningless kiss come between them. Plus, keeping Will on her team is the best thing for the STEM project. And it also gives her more time to convince him that they work better as a couple.
This is a cute story.
I really liked the importance of STEM in this story. Collette demonstrates how it is important to teach younger kids about this possible career path. She also represents girls who are not necessarily leaders of STEM programs.
The romances and relationships in the story weren’t predictable, so I enjoyed the story.
I liked that the story was told by Collette. It gave her perspective of events, and developed her character further.
I haven’t read any other books in this series, but I was able to enjoy it. Some things were mentioned in passing that may have happened in past books, but I didn’t feel like I was left out of anything.
This is a great book if you want a light, YA read.
