Pretty in Punxsutawney
Pretty in Punxsutawney is being described as a mashup up of Groundhog Day and Pretty in Pink. I thought it was a very sweet and cute version of them both. The story in hindsight was basic but also had a bit of that magic readers look for when trying to find a fun YA contemporary novel. Andie was fun, quirky, and I enjoyed the 80s references throughout. I like how the book had a great message: that everyone goes through a period of feeling like they don’t fit in or thinking that being themselves isn’t good enough. It is! You just have to find the right group for you. The romance was cute, but nothing more and nothing less. I could have done with a bit more of that spark that I look for when reading romance. Especially when the main character wants nothing more than to look for her true love’s kiss to help break the curse she has on her. The book is, at times, a teensy bit corny. I can handle the eye-roll moments most of the time, but I couldn’t help but laugh in parts that weren’t really all that funny. Overall, I was pleased with the end for Andie—cute and sweet.
