[Pdf] (Island Girls and Boys) BY Rachel Hawthorne
Not the romance book I had xpected I always thought of these YA s romance to be just like an pisode of One Tree Hill but this was nothing like it I love it it was such a touching storyJennifer and her two BFF s in the whole ntire world decide to spend a summer together before they go their separate ways to college You can think of it as a sort of good bye party The girls borrow Jen s grandparent s island house where they are completely independent and have to pay for Date Me everything themselves including food and bills They work at a camp resort part time where Jennifer meets this dark handsome biker named Dylan who is about tonter the army at the Comfort And Joy end of the summer She falls I pretty much had to force myself to finish this book and when I was reading I was hoping that someone would slap these girls for being so preoccupied with random guys Yeah they re cute whatever Kind of sad if the only way you can have fun with your girlfriends is to have guys along Every now and then I decide to take a break from all the dense textbooks I have to read for school and read something light hearted and cheesy I d read another book by this author a couple years back and rememberednjoying it Based on the title and synopsis I figured this novel wasn t going to blow my socks off but I still thought it d be fun I honestly don t know what I was xpecting but y all it s a hot mess None of the characters in this are likable plus the writing is terrible and repetitive I lost count of how many times this narrator was whining because her perfect last summer wasn t going as planned It supposed to be about three best friends but they re all self centered jerks to ach other the whole time The only bonding scene is when after two characters both get dumped they head out to party and then home to cry around a bucket of chocolate ice cream The three girls have a huge beach house to themselves for three months and none of them genuinely appreciate it That is so frustrating to me because I would kill to spend a summer at the beach with my friends and you better believe I would not be complaining the whole time As I was reading I was ual parts perplexed and disgusted This book literally set feminism back 50 years I was incredulous at some of the lines that were in here Like I know it s just a silly YA romance novel but for some reason it made me so angry They re really aren t that many things that make me angry but this book pushed all of my buttons To better illustrate why this book drove me insane I m going to list a few uotes below Right now according to my horoscope I have a guy to hook up with Usually I didn t mind guys watching me All right I m a normal girl I like guys watching me It s why I spend time making my hair look stylishly messy and putting on makeup It
"s why i "why I wear clothes that leave my pierced belly button visible I was tired of this of this GREAT SUMMER I D PLANNED NOT BEING ANYTHING AT summer I d planned not being anything at like I d planned Well a girl can t forget about boys completely ven when she s trying The first thing we did was deck ourselves out to kill Short skirts sexy tops jewelry makeup the whole nine yards We were going out on the town and we were going out big time This was supposed to be my summer of girls Flings One nighters I don t know And then I met you and I wasn t thinking about my fantasies any You were my fantasy Dylan was so hot Not dressed up of course His black t shirt stretching across his shoulders was tucked into his snug jeans I was in low cut jeans My striped top stopped just above my waist The area at the shoulders was cut away so my shoulders and a small portion of my arms were bared It made me feel sexy But not as sexy as he was You gonna order or what I looked down at the lobster faced of the kid He was probably about ight At the moment I hated the male species I m gonna WHAT People asked where Noah was Chelsea said he d moved to China They d asked me about Dylan and I said he d move to Antarctica No one seemed to uestion than thatHe grabbed a peanut from a metal bucket and went about cracking it open A lot of peanuts had been opened around hereI d adopted the new attitude that nothing was my problem unless it really was my problemHonestly if you re just looking for a summer romance novel you can do better than this This book is not the bar We can do so much better than this added Oct 22 20111 I really regret that I ven had to give this thing one star If I could have chosen a 0 I definitely would haveI really don t know why I keep wasting my money on these little romantic comedies There is nothing romantic about it and there sure as heck isn t anything comedic I thought it was going to be a nice summer read but it was pure torture from the very beginning The characters are unlikable and highly annoying I m just trying to decide which characters were worse the main character or her ridiculous friendsWe got this character that can t stand up for herself and who is all about rules and regulations very xciting by the way and she lets her friends walk all over her like she s a doormat Her friends have the audacity to demand that.
