Working with her best friend’s brother at Betty’s Burgers, free-spirited Delia starts to see Jack in a new light. Not only has Jack-the-Jerk turned into a hottie, he’s even acting like a nice guy, who rescues dogs and knows how she likes her coffee. But if Jack is into her, then why is he keeping her a secret? Of course, if her best friend doesn’t approve, Delia could lose the only family she’s ever known.Seeing Delia in her retro waitress uniform throws Jack’s world out of whack. She’s always been just another pain in the butt little sister…not a datable female. But she’s rockin’ the Pie Princess tiara, and even her hot-pink striped hair is sexy. What’s that about? He needs to get his head on straight, because artsy, funky Delia and her nonconformist ways don’t fit in his safe and ordered world.

This book reminded me of two things…how angsty and drama-filled a teenager’s life can be and how sometimes life catches you by surprise.  Delia realizes, much to her chagrin, that her best friend’s brother, who she considered to be a jerk for many years, all of a sudden isn’t.  And, although at first she doesn’t know what to do with this, things change as they’re thrown together at school and at work and he too begins to see her in a different way.  This is a story about realizing that others change and you do too…it’s a story about growing up and making decisions you never thought you would.

Delia was a smart girl who spoke her mind and needed to be more mature than her years due to absent parents.  She has a strong relationship with Zoe, her best friend, and Zoe’s family.  Because of her parent’s jobs taking them away often, she’s grown up at Zoe’s house and they’re her surrogate family.  She sees Jack almost as a sibling…and an annoying one at that.  But, as sometimes happens as we mature, we develop a different outlook on life and, in this case, she begins to see Jack in a different light.  As you can imagine, this poses some potential issues and neither of them is eager to turn their relationship into something more.  The drama unfolds as they decide that it’s worth taking a chance on what could be.  I enjoyed their development and growth, and their willingness to give a relationship a try.  These two were young and, at times, behaved a bit younger than I expected, but overall, they managed to overcome the obstacles that were in front of them.

If you enjoy contemporary young adult, this may be a good book for you.  This was a quick read with some fun characters that I think young adults will really enjoy it.  So if YA is your thing, I think that you should definitely give this author a go…check out this series for fun and romantic reads!
