One Lonely Degree by C. K. Kelly Martin

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?

I didn't really like this book as much as I thought I would. Plus the ending was probably the only part I liked. On a good note, I thought this book was very realistic and you could relate to, and that the characters seemed real and not so superficial. There is not much I can say about this book. My thoughts on her friend and him going out was pretty ridiculous. They are only in grade 10 and it seems like they are having sex every day. Plus, I dont think someone's parents would be so ainal about the whole "you can never see him again!" thing. This was a quick read, but I dont think i would read it again; maybe another time in the future. The cover also turned me off a bit. I dont like the girl on the cover. Sorry; just personal preference. x.
