Blog Tour - Free Bread Girl

About the book: Mattie’s smart and she’s in line for a college scholarship, but she’s not exactly the most popular person in school. When the hot and hunky guys at the women’s convention bread booth give out free samples to all the cutest, trendiest girls in the room, they overlook her. It’s just proof that she’s not worth their attention—she’s not a free bread girl.
What she really wants is to date Travis Banks, her high school’s soccer king. But he just can’t see past her clumsiness and frizzy hair to the real Mattie underneath, and sometimes, she can’t either. What’s it going to take for Mattie to find the free bread girl within?

My review: I really enjoyed this book. I found traces of my high school self within Mattie. I loved that she felt like she could be a real person that you know. I loved that it felt that I had been somehow sent back to my high school years. I loved how Mattie thought that she knew exactly what she wanted; only to find out, in the end, that she really didn't have the slightest clue what she wanted. I loved that she was able to discover herself and learn and grow as a person. The characters are awesome, I loved how they felt just like some of the people that I knew in high school. I loved that it is a perfectly clean book, I'd be perfectly comfortable sharing this one with our 14 year-old daughter. This was a really cute book with a great message, perfect for any teen girl that you know. 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
