Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott

From Amazon: Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the internet, and her mom is now the star of her own website.

Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants -- only what she wants may not be what she needs....

I really enjoyed this book; it's light, humorous, and a quick, fun read. It has everything an Elizabeth Scott fan has come to expect, and is a great addition to her ever-growing list of books.

The love triangle of sorts between Hannah, Josh and Finn is amusing and compelling, and although it's pretty obvious who Hannah will end up with, I still found myself unsure every now and then.

I liked all the family drama that Hannah is faced with, especially when it was related to her Mum, Candy, who spends most of her time half-naked in front of a computer screen. Although I found Hannah's relationship with her father to be slightly unrealistic, it didn't detract from the story in any way, and, if anything, made it that much more unusual.

Hannah is a sarcastic character, which I loved. Her witty remarks and biting comments had me laughing out loud at times, and her utter stupidity around boys (geode on the foot, anyone?) is something I'm sure a lot of readers can relate to.

If you're looking for an uplifting book that will leave a smile on your face, then Something, Maybe will do just that. Fans of Sarah Dessen are sure to appreciate the romance, and I can't wait to see what Scott comes up with next. Now, who's with me on Team Finn?

This looks great. Have been hearing good things all over the Internet, and Hannah sounds like a good character. I, too, am very sarcastic, so I'll prolly be able to relate. Thanks for reviewing this!
