Like the colorful strokes of her brush, love changes the canvas of their lives.
Lucas is just a small town writer starting a summer internship at the local paper when Julie blows into town like a cyclone. Legs a mile long, ginger hair that curls delicately to the small of her back and a smile that can generate energy to power Carltonville for months on end, she is easily a knockout. Unlike the other girls at Carlton High School, though, she simply is what she is—beautiful, smart, confident and an artist to her core—all facts that cause the girls to hate her and the guys to want her.
By some stroke of luck—or so he feels—she is choosing to give Lucas, the quiet writer guy, a chance. It doesn’t add up, but Lucas won’t dispute it. He just prays to the great God in Heaven he doesn’t screw it up.
I am a 13 year old and I am having a hard time writing this review because I want to tell you about what happened in the book.
I really like the book. The thing I loved the most is the characters, they felt like my friends. Lucas is my favorite character because he feels like he is a real person. He reminded me of some of my friends from school with the way he thought and acted.
The story was easy for a teenager to read. I felt like the book was written in a way that didn’t make me feel I was dumb because I didn’t understand some words or situations.
My favorite part was when Krista and Mike worked together to be match makers. I would tell my friends to read this book because it was easy to get interested in and like the characters. I even took my kindle with me to camp so I could read this book at night.
The only thing I didn’t like was the details of what people looked like and things like that. I wanted more story and not that much information. I wanted to know what was going to happen with Lucas, not what someone looked like and the details came right at the time I was wanting more story. I know details are good but I felt there were too many at times.
