Two dates—same night!Major oops. When Casey Cartwright’s brother begs her to be nerdy Dale Kettlewell’s date to the sure-to-be-boring Honors Engineering Awards, Casey says yes. Even though Dale is totally not her type… and might have a crush on her. Ugh. But it’s a nice thing to do, and Casey’s always been the “nice” girl.
But now, that night conflicts with the biggest event of the semester, the All-Greek formal. Casey already has a date lined up: hot transfer student Rob Howell. He’s her plan to get over her sexy-slacker ex, Cappie. And even nice girls get to be bad sometimes, right?
What to do? With a little help from BFF Ashleigh, unwanted advice from frenemy Rebecca Logan and even a push from Cappie, what Casey does may surprise even herself….

My Thoughts:

First of all this is a book that is based on the TV show.  And I’ve never watched the TV show.  So I didn’t have a picture of the characters in my head or anything.   And I enjoyed the book. 
I found it a little confusing at first because I’m not familiar with the characters and it was told from the perspective of different ones.  It was a little hard for me to keep track of them all at first.  Once the story took off and I got them all sorted out that wasn’t such an issue anymore. 
This isn’t a deep thinking book.  Just a light, fun, and easy read.  Something easy on the brain cells, which is a nice break sometimes. 
I enjoyed the characters and their personalities.  I had a clear picture in my head of them so if I watch the TV show sometime it’ll be interesting seeing how they really are. 
I did feel like I was watching a TV show through a book.  That’s not a good or a bad thing.  It just is.  It was different.   I think younger teens would certainly like it and some older ones as well.

I received this book free of charge for the purpose of a review.  I was not paid or influenced in any way and the review is my own and honest opinion.
