Colasanti was a high-school science teacher for 10 years before embarking on such popular novels as When It Happens (2006),Waiting for You (2009), and Something like Fate (2010). Perhaps this accounts for the ease with which she captures teen language and behavior. Her latest is a bouncy, captivating example of the teenage romantic comedy. The fact that there's a troubling backstory (heroine Brooke is a still-traumatized survivor of parental divorce) adds to the credibility of Brooke's emotions and gives extra zest to her first-person narrative. The novel follows Brooke as she moves from South Jersey to a challenging high school in Brooklyn to be near her crushâwho tells her, in their only conversation before school ends, that he is moving to Manhattan. Brooke's hobby of origami is an enchanting metaphor throughout for her working with what's at hand and coming up with something original. Colasanti fans, as well as those of Sarah Dessen and Lauren Barnholdt, will love this. A fun exploration of a city and a teen's dreams. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
