Summary: Beatrix Adams knows exactly how she’s spending the summer before her senior year. Determined to follow in Da Vinci’s footsteps, she’s ready to tackle the one thing that will give her an advantage in a museum-sponsored scholarship contest: drawing actual cadavers. But when she tries to sneak her way into the hospital’s Willed Body program and misses the last metro train home, she meets a boy who turns her summer plans upside down.
Jack is charming, wildly attractive, and possibly one of San Francisco’s most notorious graffiti artists. On midnight buses and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who Jack really is—and tries to uncover what he’s hiding that leaves him so wounded. But will these secrets come back to haunt him? Or will the skeletons in her family’s closet tear them apart?
My first initial reaction after reading this book was ‘AHDHASHHABCNADVHDVSB THE FEEEEELSSSS‘ and then smiling like an idiot for the rest of the day. This book is such an easy read. Jenn Bennett’s writing pulled me right into the story the moment i read the first paragraph. I finished it in one day and I have no regrets. I got attached with the characters. I feel what they are feeling and you just can’t help but rooting for them. I love Bex and Jack. BEX.AND.JACK.
The story might sounds cliche to you but Bennett’s done such a great work. My favorite part was when Jack draws something for Bex’s birthday. That’s just straight up cupcake sweet moment. Or when Bex’s Mom gave her boxes of almost-expired condom. LMAO.
I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to read something quick, sweet, cute, and little bit hints of angst.
