I read a Meg Cabot book years ago, and didn't have much love for it. Since then, I've felt I ought to give her a second chance, but nothing really pulled at me and said "READ ME!" So, I never did.

Maybe it's just one of those "you know it when you hear it" things.) She made driving around town a fun experience, and I was actually a little bummed when the book ended (and Heather didn't get together with the guy I wanted her to!).
I've got to go out and get the next one (unless I need to go back and get the first one?), just so I can find out what happens next.
