Review by Karina
This book is about a girl named Irene. She has dreams of opening her own beauty salon one day but for right now she is stuck working at her mom’s salon, that is, until she is suddenly fired. From there Irene takes a job babysitting for her mom’s friend Judith, which proves to be quite difficult. Summers should be great, but this one is not turning out that way. Then Irene meets a girl named Starla. They become friends and Irene even features her in her book of hairstyles. Starla unintentionally introduces Irene to her ex-boyfriend Drew; Irene and Drew hit it off and they have their own little romance.
This book was pretty good. It is a great book to take with you on summer vacation at the beach, though I wish the story was a little longer. This is obviously a girl’s book. It will appeal to the reader who likes a bit of romance but doesn’t like to be overwhelmed by it. There are also a few plot twists here and there to keep it interesting. I recommend that you make a bit of time to read it this summer.
