As you all know if you read the series Kristen isn't the richest girl in the Pretty Committee,shes actually the poorest. So while the rest of the her friends are out on vacations during the summer she's stuck at home tutor-sitting Ripple. While she's tutor-sitting Ripple she meets Dune, Ripple's hot older brother. Dune is one of the only guys that Kristen knows that understands how it is to not be rich. Dune's down to earth character draws Kristen in. Massie on the other hand doesn't like the fact the Kristen is crushing on Dune. When Kristen develops a huge crush on Dune she starts to hang out at GAS with him and his skater friends.
I'm just going to put it out there that I'm not much of a fan of these books. Now you're probably wondering why I read it if I didn't like the others. Well it's simple I had to do a review for my Language Arts class at school and figured since I was writing the review anyway why not put it on my blog, even though the one on here is way better than the one for school. On that note I actually didn't mind this one that much. I would recommend this book to people who read the rest of the series and liked them which is probably almost every girl in 8th grade to 6th grade.
Kristen would have to be my favorite character because she's not rich and stuck up like the rest. Even though Massie didn't like Dune she didn't toss him off to the side like Massie said to do. That proves that she's not just going to do something because Massie said to. She did it because she wanted to and she didn't care what Massie said. Kristen was actually my favorite character from the beginning of the series. You're probably wondering why aren't you. Well I liked her because she plays soccer and she's smart and athletic.
