Athletic Jamie isn't sure about spending the summer in the city with her romance–novel–writing mum. But when she meets irresistible Josh, Jamie realizes she could probably use all the romance advice she can get!

Lacrosse camp 9 a.m.–noon (can't be late! "Coach" Josh will freak out)

Basketball camp 1:00–4:00 (so many screaming kids. . . )

Shopping with Mona 4:30 (finally a break)

Date with Andrew 7:30 (he's so perfect. . . isn't he?)

Elizabeth Chandler has written picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, and young adult romances (including the popular Kissed By an Angel trilogy) under a variety of names. As Mary Claire Helldorfer, she lives in Baltimore, MD, and loves stories, cats, baseball, and Bob—not necessarily in that order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from surprisingly good. I didn't think I'd like this book as much as I did. It was really good, although I admit I skipped some of the parts about sports. The love story was very very cute :) it was an enjoyable read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutley Great!!! I absolutley loved this book! I have read it like a million times! I love these type of stories where to people say they hate each other, but really they like one another. I definitley recommend this book for anyone that wants a good teen romance novel. This book is about a girl named Jamie who goes to live with her mother and she starts lacrosse and her coach Josh and her dont agree on much. She meets this guy Andrew who lives beside her and she goes out with him and later in the book Josh gets jealous and......thats all Im telling cause I dont wanna spoil it.I would tell you more, but I dont want to give anything more away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some Summer Fun This book is one of the better books that I have read this summer! You get so into it, that you do not want to put it down! From the romance between Jamie's mom and her trainer to new friendships that Jamie makes over the summer, the books continues to draw you in. I learnt a lot from reading about Jamie, like you have to practice at something to be good at it e.g. lacrosse. Also I enjoyed reading how Jamie and her mom got closer through out the book, and that they cared for eachother and was there for one another, when that person needed them. Overall this is a great book! I would recommended it to all teenage girls!
