I would give this book 4.75 for a review.
Cameron Bright’s reputation can be summed up in one word: b*tch. It’s no surprise she’s queen bee at her private L.A. high school–she’s beautiful, talented, and notorious for her brutal honesty. But when she slips up in front of her crush, Andrew, any affection he may have had for her quickly fades. To win him over, Cameron resolves to “tame” herself, much like Shakespeare’s infamous shrew, Katherine. If she makes amends with everyone she’s ever wronged, Andrew will have to take notice. Thus, Cameron begins her apology tour with Brendan, the guy whose social life she single-handedly destroyed. At first, Brendan isn’t so quick to forgive, but slowly he warms to her when they connect over a computer game he’s developing. To Cameron’s amazement, she actually enjoys hanging out with Brendan; he appreciates her honesty in a way Andrew never did, and she’s left wondering: maybe you shouldn’t have to compromise who you are for the kind of love you deserve.
I really loved this book so much. I found this book to such a joy to read. I really loved seeing the lead character and how this book transformed her. I also really loved how taming the shrew was represented in the book though her english class. I thought the self discovery of the path in this book was so strong and really focused on so many issues not only cameron behavior but also her future paths. I really loved the romance and found it is be so refreshing and I really enjoy the boy in this book. The elements of friendship I also found to be super compelling. I can’t not say enough motive things about this book. I also loved the always never yours cameo for those characters. This book was so much fun to read. I will be waiting for the third book!
