Sloane Whitaker hates everything about moving to Texas. She hates leaving behind her friends and half her family in New York, starting over senior year at Austin's NextGen Academy, and having to say she lives in Texas. Most of all, she hates that it's all her fault. If she wants to earn her way back to the Big Apple, she has to prove she can still be the perfect daughter. Which means no vandalism art, no trouble at school, and absolutely no Tru Dorsey, her serial screw-up neighbor, who loves nothing more than pushing her buttons. But from the moment he vaults onto the roof outside her bedroom, there is something about him that makes her want to break every rule. Suddenly it's not the ten things she hates about Tru that are at the top of her list. It's the ten reasons she doesn't want to be without him.

I love Tera Lynn Childs. I was excited to see a new book from her. I slowly became board with this book. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. Sloane was forced to move to Texas due to some trouble she got into with her friends. She loved New York and all she wants is to go back there. Tru is the boy next door. Sloane wants to have nothing to do with Tru. This story is about two kids that have some form of trouble in their life. I feel like the story was way too busy with different power arcs that it was so hard to maintain focus on everything going on. The characters were okay but they weren’t bad either. At least they grew a little bit in their journey. It was a pretty fast read. I just expected more.
