I LOVED how strong and confident she was in her basketball skills, and how sassy she could be with Cam and the other people she hangs out with. I had to keep reminding myself he was a 16 year old boy…I thought the relationship with her sister, Beth, really added to Bianca’s depth…her feeling conflicted b/c Beth was her best friend, but also the source of her feelings of inferiority in some ways. So he didn’t quite get put in my top book boyfriend lists, but he still made me smile.Blurb: Cameron Bates (Cam) could have almost any girl at Franklin High School…except for the one he wants.Unfortunately Bebe seems to be immune to his flirty charm and good looks, which means one of two things: a) she’s completely oblivious to how he feels, or b) she’s just not into him.A passenger boarding 001 at San Francisco Municipal Airport (it didn't become San Francisco International until 1955) and making the entire journey would touch down in Honolulu, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Delhi, Beirut, Istanbul, Frankfurt, London and finally New York.Eastbound Flight 002, originating in New York, hit the same cities in the opposite direction, ending up in San Francisco.I’m not sure if it was great characters, or just me loving the double unrequited love trope (where they both secretly love each other, but assume the other doesn’t feel the same), but I was invested in seeing how their story would unfold.I found both characters to be equally ADORABLE, CUTE, QUIRKY on one hand, and FRUSTRATING as all get out on the other.
But I still have a hard time reading it personally, b/c it can result in a really frustrating book.
You have no idea how many times I huffed in annoyance when something would get in the way and delay my gratification.
I know a lot of readers enjoy that, so I know not everyone will feel the same as me.
What it can provide is some great tension between the characters, and I thought that Cam and Bebe had that.
But if I’m (personally) not given enough growth and development of the characters, then I tend to be left with more frustration than I can handle. Now, with all that being said, I was honestly sucked in and hooked for a good portion of the book.
