Synopsis: Pretend to be from Spain? Act like she can barely speak English? Sure, why not? It wouldn’t be the first time Gabby Vega had agreed to a challenge from her best friend, Kenzie. Besides, it’s only for a week of vacation with Kenzie’s cousins. Gabby will prove to Kenzie she can keep up the fake identity for the whole trip—that she’s not a quitter.
There’s just one major surprise. Noah Jernigan is also staying with Kenzie’s cousins. Noah, the boy she fell in love with at drama camp last summer and the boy she had to dump when it was over. The boy who knows who she really is.
Noah can’t believe it when Gabby appears at the Bryson’s vacation home in the New Mexico mountains. He hasn’t seen her in a year. It practically took that long just to get over her. And now she’s Gabriela from Spain? All he wants is to get as far away as he can. Or maybe the exact opposite. Stick as close to her as possible and find out what the heck happened last summer. And definitely get some payback.
Now Gabby has to keep Noah at arm’s length as she pretends to be Gabriela. She doesn’t want to answer his questions or rehash last summer. Because one thing is clear—the more time she spends with Noah, the more she’s in danger of falling for him all over again. (goodreads)
This book is ADORABLE! The author, Patricia Tighe, needed readers for her book and I was picked. Woohoo! So when I got to the Sardine Game part I had to message her and tell her how perfect this part was. For a clean YA romance, I definitely felt their feels. Oh my goodness, it was perfect. And that’s all I’ll say because you’ll just have to read the book.
Ok, now to an actual review, well sorta. I’m more of the “Oh I loved the book, just go read it” type of reviewer. But I do try.
So, Gabby is a very fun protagonist. I mean, from the very beginning, when she decides to pretend to be from Spain, and then steps out and sees Noah, you just cringe for her and have to keep reading because you’re like, “WHAT IS HAPPENING???” The set up was perfect.
This is a fun, summer read, that makes you love summer vacations. So, go read this book.
And I might need to change my rating from a 4 to a 5 because I called it perfect so many times. Haha.
