The Promise of Amazing, by Robin Constantine
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Chick-lit
Rating: 3/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.
Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.
One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love."
- This was your average typical chick-lit love story. I wanted more from it, but it never came. I've read many stories like this before, where you think something big is going to happen, but it never does. I got frustrated with this. :/
- If you're new to reading chick-lit teen books, give this a try. But, if you've read as many as I have, then don't give it a try. That's basically all I can say.
- Wren wasn't as quiet as her family told her as, she was more loud than Grayson. I didn't find the chemistry very interesting, but you know, you can see something in there.
