Publisher's Summary

The middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting!
Nerdy astronomy geek Marsha, "M" to her few friends, has never been anybody special. Orphaned as an infant and reluctantly raised by an overly-strict "aunt", she's not even sure who she is. M's dream of someday escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana, and making her mark in the world seems impossibly distant until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things start to happen: her acne clears up, her eyesight improves to the point she can ditch her thick glasses, and when they touch, sparks fly - literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her formerly humdrum life forever...and expose her to perils she never dreamed of.

fantastic narrator

I understand the narrator is the author's daughter so I get why she told the book so well. Many narrator don't put emotion or feeling into their books and just read the script. This particular narrator acted out the action's of the main character and would change her voice well to go along with the narration which I liked.

The story itself is good and I really look forward to seeing books 2-4 on audio.

Aggressively Formulaic But Entertaining Enough

Nothing spectacular but if what you read in the blurb appeals to you then you'll enjoy it. Although it does feel about 100 pages too long, it's drug out a but more than it needs to be. It should be noted that this story suffers from your average nerdy/ judgemental girl meets inhumanly hot boy and spends a lot of the story being catty with the cartoonishly rich/blond/cheerleader character. Which is pretty played out, but like I said before, if you're just looking for some good old fashion teen drama to numb your brain, this will give it to you.
The narrator is good, although she by NO means sounds like a 15 year old, and her attempts to do so at times are almost funny. So it threw me off considerably in the beginning.
