I have been remiss on my reading. Sometimes life gets in the way, and as much as I love reading, am maybe too old to fit a lot of things in my life, and my reading suffers. It took me a week to finish Any Spalding’s ‘The New Guy (And Other Senior Year Distractions)’ because of personal distractions. But this book i sa good summer read. At first, I wasn’t really taken by the main character, Jules, because I felt she was just a bit obnoxious and feeling-entitled, but I liked that she was pegged down a couple of times. And I wish that there was more romance and less of the petty rivalry between the school newspaper team and their new media counterpart. But all in all, I liked this.
