I've enjoyed some other titles by the author, so I decided to pick this one up. I found the whole idea of "face it down day" to be kind of laughable and unrealistic, but I also went to high school more than 15 years ago, so what do I know? Things I did enjoy: realistically fraught and unresolved relationships with parents. Nobody came to grand realizations and big understandings about their parents, there was just acknowledgement on both sides that their fathers/their relationships with their parents was messed up and that it was affecting their current romantic relationships. I liked the author's take on female teen friendships and "girl drama." Sometimes I love the Sarah Dessen message about female friendship being super-empowering and awesome, but sometimes I remember what high school friendships were really like. Ha. I liked the main relationship; Kelsey was especially well-drawn, though Isaac was less defined. They were cute but their problems about their honesty or lack thereof seemed inorganic and manufactured. Maybe I just felt that way because the whole idea of Face it Down Day seemed so fake.
