4 STARS: I Really Liked It

Cassidy knows everything about Chad–everything, that is, except how to get him to notice her. Someday, somehow, she vows, those deep blue eyes are going to look her way. In the meantime, she’s got plenty of other things to worry about.
Cassidy has always been happy to be the studious, reliable type–until Elise and her good-looking brother move into the neighborhood. Elise is determined to introduce Cassidy to the partying life. But will Elise’s Carpe Diem ways land Cassidy in more trouble than she’s prepared for? Can a girl be smart and have fun too? Cassidy is about to find out.

My Thoughts:
Janette Rallison wrote Deep Blue Eyes and Other Lies sixteen years ago, and she got the rights back to it a few years back. Deep Blue Eyes and Other Lies was written with characters that were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as Mormons. The book was one of my favorites as a teenager, but it was written for a Christian audience. She rewrote some parts, changed some names, and added some modern stuff like cell phones, and now it’s for any audience.

I loved this book all over again! Janette Rallison cannot go wrong in my mind. Her books are always enjoyable and so funny with cute romances. It was fun to read a familiar book with some new twists. The characters are funny and easy to relate to.

One of my favorite scenes was when Cassidy took her driver’s test, hilarious! The old man that administered her test reminded me of a guy I had to drive with during driver’s ed. He was totally paranoid. He would grab the steering wheel from me and slam on his brake all the time. I promise I’m not a bad driver; the poor man was just terrified.

A fun and enjoyable read! It’s on sale for $.99! Amazon and Barnes and Noble
