The author of A Little Something Different brings you the most adorkable romance ever.
Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She’s babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.
Teo doesn’t dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo’s pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he’ll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane’s house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she’s terrified of how her parents will react.
In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane’s Magic 8 ball can’t give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.
Jane is trying to make her mother see that she is capable of taking control of her life. So when her mother gets her an unpaid internship she decides to find herself a job so she can start saving up money. That job happens to be a babysitter for Teo's younger half-sisters. Having known each other for their whole life it's a wonder why Teo and Jane aren't closer - till Teo realizes his best friend's hatred for Jane. For the summer they have to work around Ravi's hatred and see if they could get back to being friends.
This book was absolutely adorable! Jane and Teo's relationship is one that would make any girl swoon. You root for them, you cheer for them, you are happy with the decisions they make. Because while it takes them a while to realize their feelings for each other, they also realize that there are certain parameters they'd like their relationship to be set-up under. Teo wants Jane to know that he likes her for her and not because she's helping him through his problems. And Jane wants Teo to know she isn't expecting payback for the help she's given.
I started this book and finished it only 5 or 6 hours later. It was such a quick and easy read, as well as enjoyable. I found that there were some plot points that were predictable, but it didn't bother me too much. The characters, themselves, were unique enough to make it a different experience although the story might've been shaped the same. I loved Jane. Honestly, she was a fangirl of everything I loved. She kept writing fanfic of the Eleventh Doctor. That's my Doctor, I will always and forever love him. So I loved all of her random musings on Eleven. There were many little nerd mentions throughout the book - whether it be Star Wars, Doctor Who, Veronica Mars or Harry Potter, and each one made me smile just as much as the last.
