Signs Point to Yes

If only Jane's Magic 8 Ball could tell her how to get through the summer. With her "perfect" sister, Margo, home for her "perfect" internship, Jane is not going to be able to spend the summer writing fan fiction, as she had planned. And her emergency babysitting job requires Jane to spend the whole summer in awkward proximity to her new crush, Teo, a nerdy-hot lifeguard with problems of his own. With his best friend out of town, Teo finds himself without anyone to confide in...except Jane. Will Jane and Teao be able to salvage each other's summer? Even the Magic 8 ball doesn't have the answer...but signs point to yes. - excerpt from book

Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall is a young adult romance book that is set in the summer. I have quite like romances that happens in the summer and usually I would buy those books when I spot the summer word in it. I guess it's because there's no summer where I am and there is no summer holiday as well. It's always enjoyable for me to read about what teenagers do when they have their summer holiday because it never happens to me. As far as young adult romances go, I have not had one myself in the past.

So firstly I like the setting of the book, it's just a simple story about a teenage girl doing her summer job and also falling in love. There is also some important life event happening at the same time which the main character is experiencing. It's quite a common thing as it happens to all teenagers when they reach that point of their lives. Another major thing that is happening would be to the male character of the book. I liked his actions and reaction to his problem. Both characters are quite cute and their interactions are cute too, I would have prefer more happening between them though. I liked that all characters in the book had a bit of growth which is relevant to making the plot progress forward.

I quite like the pace of the story and the plot was not too bad. Seeing that this is a romance book, there isn't too much twists but I think it was good enough. This was a really short book about 200 over pages so it was a quick read. I liked that even though it was a short book, quite a number of things had happened. This was a simple but cute and sweet kinda summer love story and I liked it very much. In summary, if you're looking for a light hearted, cute and sweet summer romance then this book is your cup of tea. I would definitely read it again when I want some summer lovin' but not when the story is fresh in my head now.
