RTW - Favorite Book in April

Not only is today Road Trip Wednesday, it's also drawing day for the Derby and time for me to figure out who I'm favoring this year. =) Anyway before I go off on a tangent...

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.


This week's topic was:
What's the best book you've read this month?

I haven't been doing a very good job at keeping up with my reading this month, but my favorite book read this month hands down was...

At Fairfield High School, on the outskirts of Chicago, everyone knows that the south siders and north siders aren't exactly compatible elements. So when head cheerleader Brittany Ellis and gang member Alex Fuentes are forced to be lab partners in chemistry class, the results are bound to be explosive. But neither teen is prepared for the most surprising chemical reaction of all -- love. Can they break through the stereotypes and misconceptions that threaten to keep them apart?

I waited a long time for this book and it did not disappoint. It was a fabulous new romance. My favorite character by far was Alex. A part of you doesn't really want to like him at first, but you can't not. I really, really want Rules of Attraction right now...

The full review (no spoilers in the first half, there is a warning when spoilers are ahead) is here.
