The high school play is in two months and senior Wren Barlow just became the director. Wren still isn't over the fact that she got stiffed as a stagehand instead of the lead role that she totally deserved. Now she is in charge of rehearsals, costumes, navigating around cast member hookups, and managing the real-life drama at home.
The principal counts on her to succeed because tickets have been sold and the money has been spent. But when he drops a gorgeous bad boy on her and wants him to help the play for extra credit, she falls hard for someone she knows she can't date. With everything spinning out of control, the mysterious and secretive detention king named Derek has a few tricks up his sleeve and wants to help - too bad Wren is scared to give him a chance to prove himself.

A clean light read.
Wren the main character auditions for a play (directed by her aunt) at her school. She does not get a part in the play but she ends up being a stagehand. Wren's aunt acts like a drama queen and is horrible to her niece. She quits her job and the role of director lands on Wrens shoulder, which I found hard to believe and unrealistic. Not because Wren couldn't do it but more like another teacher with the help of the students would have taken that role.
The characters are realistic and acted their age. However I found Wren to be immature at times and that really annoyed me and put me off at times.My favorite character has to be Derek. He is meant to be the bad boy but he didn't act like it. I found him to be sweet, likable and more mature then Wren. I felt that she did not deserve him especially after the way she treated him. However Wren is 17 and at that age we tend to act before we think.
I didn't like how she dealt with Margot her best friend. She starts dating a 21 year old college student. So you would think her friend would talk her out of it or even worry about her. But no, she doesn't. She is happy that her friend is not there so she could have more time with Derek without having to lie to her and tell her where she is.
There is bad language used in this book but other then that it's clean. Due to the characters and how they acted, this might targeted more for teenagers/YA.This isn't for me, even though the author (I thought) showed a lot of potential in this book.
The narrator was really good. She voiced all the characters and I felt that I was listening to teenagers. This showed how well the characters are portrayed and how well the narrator brought them to life.
