Summary: Seventeen-year-old Annika tries to cheer up her little brother Jeremy before his surgery to remove a cancerous tumor by bringing home his favorite television actor, Steve Raleigh, the star of “Teen Robin Hood.”
This was a very fun book. Though it’s plot can be silly at times, the characters always shine through. The twist ending was very surprising. This book is a romantic comedy and it succeed in being both romantic and comedic. I think this book could honour.
this book was very good and i thought it would be set in the past but i liked it being set in the present. i laughed out loud at all the wacky things she did in this book. i also thought it had a little romance in it and that part was very sweet.i defiantly think this could win at least an honor award.
In my opinion, the ending was one of the best things about this book. It doesn’t portary a happy, sugar-coated reality, but a realistic one. In life, there isn’t always a happy ending – you have to make your own. Despite everything, the main character and her brother manage to do that.
I thought that this was an amazing and especially a thought-provoking book. It’s one of my very favorites this year, and I know that I won’t forget it for a long time to come.
