Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott

July 7th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars

Description: I wonder what it would be like to do high school things. To go out on the weekends. To kiss a guy. To have a normal life. A real one.

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she’s got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad’s girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar…and that’s just how she likes it.

Of course, that doesn’t help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah’s sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can’t stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she’s going crazy. Yet she’s determined to make things work out the way she wants — only what she wants may not be what she needs….

I kept hearing about Elizabeth Scott’s books and when I saw Something, Maybe sitting on the library self I had to pick it up.  The story was cute but pretty predictable.  I loved Finn and thought he was the sweetest guy despite Hannah’s obliviousness towards his feelings.  I mean come on, was she really that blinded by her infatuation with Josh?  Despite that it was an enjoyable story and I think a lot of readers would be able to relate to her aversion to taking the risk of putting her feelings out there.   While not one of my favorite YA romance books it was nonetheless a quick, fun read.
