Josh – “I have to be logical about it to find someone compatible.”
Cassidy – “What about chemistry?”
“Yeah, right. What I need is someone who understands why Cheerios are ground into the seats of my car.”
Cassidy knows everything about Chad–everything, that is, except how to get him to notice her. Someday, somehow, she vows, those deep blue eyes are going to look her way. In the meantime, she’s got plenty of other things to worry about.
Cassidy has always been happy to be the studious, reliable type–until Elise and her good-looking brother move into the neighborhood. Elise is determined to introduce Cassidy to the partying life. But will Elise’s Carpe Diem ways land Cassidy in more trouble than she’s prepared for? Can a girl be smart and have fun too? Cassidy is about to find out.
3 of 5 stars to Blue Eyes and Other Teenage Hazards by Janette Rallison
Reading the title, you’d think this book will be full of cute teenage flirtation and whatnot. It also doesn’t help that the cover art is so mushy and sweet but I was surprised to find that it’s focused more on friendship and family problems. What a cool book. There is very little romance and plentiful teenage melodramas. It’s a cute filler-book. I read this stuff in between heavy books to “cleanse” my “palette”. It’s a very light read and extremely short, only 330 pages.
