Summary from Goodreads

Her father has quit his job to sell vitamins at the mall, and Kate is forced to work with him. Her best friend has become popular, and now she acts like Kate's invisible.

And then there's Will. Gorgeous, unattainable Will, whom Kate acts like she can't stand even though she can't stop thinking about him. When Will starts acting interested, Kate hates herself for wanting him when she's sure she's just his latest conquest.

Kate figures that the only way things will ever stop hurting so much is if she keeps to herself and stops caring about anyone or anything. What she doesn't realize is that while life may not always be perfect, good things can happen -- but only if she lets them...

My Review

As you can read from the summary from Goodreads, that's exactly how the story went. Nothing more nothing less.  I was quite disappointed in this story. At first, I was enjoying it. I can relate with Kate. Yeah, I felt that way before, but when I'm already reaching the end and all I could read is Kate's paranoia, I am starting to get annoyed. "oh... Will is only having fun of me," "oh, my I have no more friends," "oh, i hate everyone," "I have the worst life ever," Ooookkkk.... I'm expecting a very nice change of attitude from Kate after this, and a very happy ending... this book has given me so much negativity with Kate's attitude that I feel like it sticked on me the whole day. So I better have my happy ending! And guess what??!!! this book totally disappointed me! Yes, Kate did have her happy ending (thanks a lot!) but that's just it!!! From being the negative girl, she just had a sudden epiphany in one page and all of a sudden, everything change in the epilogue. Just like that!!! The author didn't even let me enjoy the feeling of Kate's changes, it was so sudden that I feel like MS. Scott suddenly just got bored during writing this and decided to end it just to end it.
