Goodreads Summary: Sixteen-year-old Pippa Greene never goes anywhere without her camera. She and her best friend/supermodel-in-training Dace long ago mapped out their life plan: Pippa will be the noted fashion photographer, and Dace the cover girl. But ever since last spring, things have changed for Pippa — and her junior year at Spalding High proves to have its own set of challenges. Not only is Vantage Point, the statewide photography competition, in three short weeks, but her mandatory volunteer placement lands her at St. Christopher’s Hospital, a place Pippa never wanted to set foot in again. With humour and pluck, she navigates her new role as a candy striper (watch out for Code Yellows), her changing relationship with her best friend (goodbye Honesty Pact), and — perhaps most stressful of all — her new love interests (yes, love interests plural).
Will Pippa make it to Vantage Point without having a panic attack? Will either one of the guys prove less sketchy than her last boyfriend? Can she and Dace figure out a way to dream big and be best friends? One thing is certain: real life is a lot more complicated than a photograph.
DNF @ 62 pages.
I didn't like this book. At 62 pages, I decided that it wasn't for me so I put it down. I mean, it could've been amazing, if I was in the mood and liked those sort of things. But this was just one of those below-average contemporaries that are boring and predictable. Why waste my time reading this?
This is probably the only 1 star review created. Well, I'm #sorrynotsorry to say that I don't even care! Haha! *giggles like a fool*
This was about a chick named Pippa (short form for Philadelphia) who likes photography. And that's basically it. There's a photography contest coming up and she needs to win. And yes, there's a bit of romance mixed in between.
I don't feel like ranting about this, so let's just make everything clear here.
- the plot sucked and bored me
- the idea made me go ?_? the whole time through
- the characters? Don't even get me started. I really didn't like Pippa because she was overly easy-going. You can take it to a certain level, but she made it all go extreme.
- romance? It was there, but nothing special and something I can live without.
Ta da! There you have my opinion in four points. MAGIC! Don't read this book if you trust my word.
