One Lonely Degree

Title: One Lonely Degree

Author: C.K. Kelly Martin

Pages: 256

Rating: ***1/2

Summary (from Goodreads): Anything is possible.... Finn has always felt out of place, but suddenly her world is unraveling. It started with The Party. And Adam Porter. And the night in September that changed everything. The only person who knows about that night is Audrey—Finn’s best friend, her witness to everything, and the one person Finn trusts implicitly. So when Finn’s childhood friend Jersy moves back to town—reckless, beautiful Jersy, all lips and eyes and hair so soft you’d want to dip your fingers into it if you weren’t careful—Finn gives her blessing for Audrey to date him. How could she possibly say no to Audrey? With Audrey gone for the summer, though, Finn finds herself spending more and more time with Jersy, and for the first time in her life, something feels right. But Finn can’t be the girl who does this to her best friend...can she?

Review: This book was a quick read. I enjoyed the plot and Finn as a character. I thought it was fairly realistic for a romance novel--I really liked the ending. Audrey is the perfect best friend, the type of friend I would love to have. Jersy is the best guy friend you could hope for. Finn, despite having them by her side, is still struggling because of what happened with Adam Porter. That part of the story wasn't drawn out--I liked that the author explains it early on so you can connect it to Finn's current actions. It also wasn't the cliche you might expect it to be. Overall, a pretty good read. I recommend it as a summer beach read, because it isn't too complex and it reads easily.

Recommended for: Romance lovers, older teens (mature party scene)

Sorry for the short reviews--any suggestions? Is there anything you'd like to hear about the book that I don't include?
