What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones

From Goodreads:
My name is Sophie.
This book is about me.
It tells
the heart-stoppingly riveting story
of my first love.
And also of my second.
And, okay, my third love too.

It's not that I'm boy crazy.
It's just that even though
I'm almost fifteen
it's like
my mind
and my body
and my heart
just don't seem to be able to agree
on anything

This was a fun read.  When we first meed Sophie she is dating Dylan, a really good looking and popular boy from her school.  Things are great to begin with but then Sophie starts to feel differently...

I enjoyed taking Sophie's journey through her first experiences with love - discovering that it's not what someone looks like but who they are that matters. I absolutely loved her for her decision at the end (you will need to read it to understand what I mean) and it set's up the next book perfectly.  The story also explores Sophie's home life and her relationship with her mother and I really enjoyed that aspect of the story.

I love how Sonya Sones manages to really capture life as a teen and to infuse it with humour.  She really captures relationships well too and reading her books are always great fun.  I really enjoyed it and as soon as I finished it I grabbed the sequel (which is awesome!).

Sounds cute.

Side note: Doesn't the cover chick look like Jennifer Love Hewitt or Lacey Chabert?

I'm definitely seeing Lacey Chabert!
*sighs* I loved Party of Five...
