Without a doubt this book deserves 5 stars. I think it’s one of if not my favorite book of the year so far. The female friendship in this book is fabulous and the romance is swoon worthy. I <heart> nerdy boys what can I say? The addition of the Uppercase Box reading experience sent this book over the edge. If you like contemporary romance stories and haven’t picked this one up yet I highly recommend it.
