I am really enjoying this story! I'mnot sure what you would like in a review so I'm just going to be honest.
I felt like the beginning started a little stiff. It was good and had my attention but there were a few scenes that seemed a little sluggish. Right after chapter 3 is where it seemed to find it's rhythm.
The characters are real to me and Jo's struggles with balancing high school, bullies, crushes and family really took me back to my own high school days. I find myself in conflict with the obvious progression of the story. But that's what keeps me reading! I mean, it's sooo not okay for her and Jake to date, he's her teacher. But they are so great together! It's awesome how he's training for the marathon with her and he's turned into this stand up guy. I guess first impressions can be wrong ;) I like that you made her 18, took out the creep factor. I keep hoping maybe she'll graduate early and than this whole thing can work out. Jo deserves a guy who is ready to be an adult, and Jim is still a kid. Plus, I really like how your girls are strong. I get really sick of reading stories where the heroine is a simpering moron. The women in yours are confident and self assured and it's refreshing. On that note, I def think you should change the title. i like the new one better. There are a few places where you change tense and some grammatical and spelling errors but nothing that can't be polished up.
I'm anxiously awaiting the next installment! Hopefully it won't be long! You're excellent at building anticipation and I'm very excited to see what happens next.
PS: I should warn you, when I get attached to a story I tend to go all 'fan girl' this won't be my last review. I'm going to need to know what happens next :)

So I really like this side of the Jake Ness character. I really, really can not stand Mindy at all! It's obvious that Jo has no interest in the Todd character anymore. Anyway I know I hoped Jim and Jo to get together. But all I care about is Jake and Jo hopefully getting together at some point:) I hope they are endgame?! Anyway, like always I enjoyed reading and look forward to reading more!
