I enjoyed this book much more because it gave a bit of a more insight on Kayla and her life. Jared surprises Kayla by giving dumping her. Totally unexpected. She is in total shock and just confused. She is unsure what to do and what to say. Kayla does her best to move on, especially when a new foreign exchange student comes landing right in her lap. Can someone say rebound???Kayla is such a strong character in this book. To me she is not perceived as a teenager. The way that she acts during a break-up, I think she handled it very well. Jared has broken her heart into pieces. She doesn't cause a scene or act crazy. She accept it for what it is and just leave it at that. She blogs a lot which helps vent out her feelings and she gets chance to lean from it as well.What I love the most about this was the change that Kayla went through. She even say it herself in the book. She was not the same person. Even though she still over Jared, she grew the experience learning from it instead of being bitter.Also, the way she handled the rebound afterward was good. She didn't go to far and keep the relationship simple. I admire her for acting so grown up in all of this. The questions she posed as well as the advice was once again good. In the end, I believe Kayla made the right choice.
