He's With Me (I Heart Bikinis) by Tamara Summers

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Genre: Contemporary/Romance

Release Date: May 1, 2007

About the Book: Lexie has had a crush on her brother's best friend Jake since they first met. When popular girl Bree sets her sights on Jake, Lexie is sure there is no way she could ever win Jake over. But Jake has no interest in Bree and needs a way to get her off his back without incurring the wrath of the popular girl-so a plan is formed: Lexie will pretend to be Jake's girlfriend. If only their relationship wasn't pretend...

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I had enjoyed Save the Date by Tamara Summers so I decided to check this one out. Plus, I was in the mood for a fun book that I knew I would enjoy. And even though I didn't like it as much as Save the Date, it was still pretty cute.

He's With Me is a typical romantic comedy. The thing I did like was there was no annoying miscommunication between Jake and Lexie. Even though Bree tried to pull an evil trick on them, they were smart enough not to fall for it. The plot was more about Lexie and Jake realizing they liked each other, not getting mad at each other because of what someone said. So for that, it was a refreshing romantic comedy!

It's a light, fast read and perfect if you're looking for a summer romance. There's not a lot of depth, but it's cute read. I really liked Lexie-she loves to read and even named her dogs, Thorn and Alanna, after characters in her favorite book. (Extra points if you know what book they are from!)


If you're not a fan of romance, I wouldn't pick this one up, since it is a romance-pure and simple. But if you're looking for a fun light read with a crush-worthy boy, give He's With Me a try.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
