The greatest thing about this book is that Meg Cabot can write stories as if they're coming out of a regular teenager. Meg has awesome talents for a middle-aged woman to write the way she does for her teen books.
I recommend this book and also the second book, Ready or Not, to teenagers.
I thought I would hate this book. I mean, c'mon, I occasionally read "trashy" teen novels with romance and stuff (I read Lord of the Rings at 8) but it's actually pretty good, and I'm rereading it. It's kinda cliched in parts, and I don't like her stereotypical portrayal of a rebellious artist, but this book is worth a read. The voice is great, the romance is just enough but not too overpowering, and all in all you might as well try it.
