      I found your site a long time ago on a list of Blog Hops 🙂 edysicecreamlover18@gmail.com Can I say my favorite book of chick lit is the Princess Diaries? Mia Thermopolis is hysterical, I love how she experiences so many ironies and embarrassing events in her life (parallels mine). I also love the endings of those books (I refuse to read books that have bad endings). I would choose “The Opposite of Me” of your books if I could, my name is ironically Lindsay irl. I really enjoyed your synopsis and I loved how you said it was one of the best books you had read in 2010 and I love all of the questions you bring up in the review-I really had to think for some of them.
