I liked this more than I thought I would. At first, I had thought it would be filled with some petty fighting and posturing between the cousins over who got the boy, but it wasn't. It still had some cat claws that come out, but was more than just two girls bickering. But we don't know it right away.
I felt bad for Jamie in this one. She goes out of her way to try and be nice to her cousin, Milan, who has been sent from high society to the country to live for the time being. Even when it isn't easy, she is trying to be nice. And that is not easy. Its hard to be nice to people who are mean to you or indifferent.
At first I thought Milan was someone I could never like. But as her story comes out, I slowly started to warm up to her. Not right away and mostly towards the end, but I was (eventually) glad to see that Milan wasn't just a girl with an attitude. I have to hand it to Jamie, she really did try, even when Milan went out of her way to make Jamie's life difficult.
This was more than just another young adult romance. It was more based on the relationship of these two cousins (if you can call it that through all the bickering and fighting going on). But I enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the setting of the Pumpkin Patch. Definitely worth while read.
