I have been following Elizabeth Scott’s blog for sometime now but I had not read even a single book by her. So I picked up Something, maybe from the library.
Something, maybe is really a feel good book, a lighthearted story about a teenage girl Hannah in a small town. There are quite a few themes covered in this book but none are too overbearing. There is Hannah’s mom who is grieving for her dead husband and Hannah who is trying to fit in. Hannah has a huge crush on Josh who works with her at Burger Town call center and Finn who irritates her enough to not think seriously about.
I had read its a romance story. It is, but romance is not the main theme in this book according to me. I found the relationship between Hannah and her dad very interesting. Her dad is an old, rich and a famous guy with his own reality show. At the beginning I found their relationship really funny but as the story progressed I found it sad and heart breaking.
I liked all the characters-Hannah, Finn, her mom and even Josh. Elizabeth Scott makes all of them feel real. Something, maybe is a very good page turner but I would recommend it to YA lovers only.
It sounds like this book does a great job exploring relationships. Sounds good to me!
Is it terrible of me that I don’t want to pick it up because the title bothers me?
ha…I don’t think so, I really like the title though 🙂
I don’t read a lot of YA, so I probably won’t pick this one up, but I love a girl in a hat, so I was drawn to the cover 🙂
I’ve been meaning to try Scott for ages. This sounds like something I’d really enjoy.
I’m glad you like the book, Violet! It does sound like a good story with great characters. 🙂
