The Promise of Amazing - Robin Constantine

My only real complaint for this book was that there was just too much language. Probably my upbringing and my group of friends growing up, but it just seemed unrealistic to me, and unlikable. 

 

I liked that the climax of this novel was not the classic couple breakup-get-back-together plot, but that Wren and Grayson actually worked through the thing that threatened to keep them apart. I mean, hallelujah! A YA couple who managed to be reasonable people! 

 

Yeah, maybe some of Grayson's stories were a little unbelievable. But all in all, this novel was exactly what I wanted it to be, minus the language. I'm definitely happy!
