A little dare never hurt anybody…
My whole life’s been about following in my parents’ footsteps: ace school and then get into med school. And that means that my dream to become a world-famous artist isn’t part of the plan. Neither is the game of spin-the-bottle that leads me to the second most humiliating moment of my life with Mason Finnick.
The brooding, obviously heartbroken, and ridiculously talented point guard of the Rock Valley High basketball team.
And better yet – thanks to my parents and their plan, we’re stuck in the same class together.
But I’ve got one mission for the rest of senior year that will make everyone happy: ace this class and convince Mason to be the guinea pig for Project Happiness. He’ll win his ex back and I’ll get to go to art camp this summer.
Should be easy!
But Mason has a way of getting under my skin.
And the smoldering way he looks at me makes me want to ditch the plan.
If I can’t pull myself together, I might just ruin everything.
Or, I might just find that letting go can be the best part of life.
Trina loves art. Her parents want her to go to med school. When they change her class schedule she is now stuck in an independent study class with Mason. Mason is new at the school for his senior year and starting point guard on the basketball team. Mason’s cheerleading girlfriend broke up with him before winter break. Trina decides to help Mason get his girlfriend back in a project to ace a class so she can go to art camp.
I am not a big fan of the heroine. I feel like she butted into Mason’s business just so she could be his friend. And this was before Project Happiness. Another thing that bothered me about the book is the dictator parents trope. Also, the heroine kind of seemed… dense I guess could be the word.
I didn’t truly buy the parents at the end. It seems like one of the wrap everything up and make it happy. It didn’t feel real. And Mrs. Drew needs a refresher on how to talk to students.
