Favorite Quotes:

“Stop it. You are trusting. You love your fans. You’re cool and funny and chill. You are Jennifer Lawerence.”- Darian (pg.37)


“It’s like Taylor Swift insuring her legs. Ridiculous.”- Darien (pg.284)

Overall Opinion:
There are several scenes that are relatable for both Darien and Elle.

I love the sass that Elle gives when she encounters Darien at Miss May’s office. It was hilarious.

My favorite character is Sage. 100%

This book is ridiculous, hilarious, and the best thing ever.

I would rate this book four stars out of five mainly because of the cursing in it.
