Review: 

Drive Me Crazy is one of Erin Downing's Simon Pulse romantic comedies and is yet another fun read from her. It's short, sweet and perfect for a rainy day - there's nothing better than curling up with a good romcom!

Kate, Sierra and Alexis are headed to their family's lake houses in Love, Wisconsin. Kate's excited about seeing her previous summer boy Lucas, but a spanner is thrown in the works when Alexis's cousin Adam crashes their road trip. Kate and Adam don't see eye to eye, but sometimes things don't turn out quite how you expect them to...

I liked all the characters in this book, particularly Adam and Kate. They steal the show with their witty banter and acerbic insults, and their dialogue was my favourite to read. Their story is a little predictable at times, but I expected that and enjoyed their journey nonetheless.

Drive Me Crazy is Erin Downing at her romantic best. She's a great writer and really should get more recognition in the YA world - I've read three of her books now and have liked them all. Prom Crashers and Dancing Queen are next on my list and I hope they're as enjoyable as this one!
