Plan B by Jenny O'Connel


Coast through senior year. Graduate. Travel around Europe. Join boyfriend out East for college.

That's the plan. Then the phone rings.

Vanessa has the next year of her life pretty much figured out. Sure, there's some parental convincing to do but she and her celebrity-obsessed gal pal Taylor pretty much think their plan is airtight.

Then Vanessa's parents get a mysterious phone call and drop a bombshell on her that she never could have imagined. She has a half brother. And he's coming to live with them.

If that wasn't bad enough, this half brother is none other than Hollywood bad boy Reed Vaughn. He's famous. He's going to be a senior, too. And he's going to ruin Vanessa's life for sure....


Firstly, let me thank me fantastic friend Cindy for this book. :]
Secondly, I really liked it. What I liked most was most likely the plot. It was pretty original, if you ask me.
Plan B also had some very funny moments. This book was very humorous and entertaining. No matter how much I enjoyed this book though, I have to admit I had a hard time getting into it when I first began reading it. I thought that some parts had too many details. Was it just me? Hmm... I don't know. The characters in this book, to me, were pretty realistic. I pictured Vanessa's boyfriend perfectly (the typical "jock"). Overall, I really enjoyed this novel, but it could have been more entertaining at the beginning.

I thought the cover to this book was
so pretty. The girl on the front has a really beautiful eye color and I like how she's hiding behind her hands like she's in shock. It kind of attracted me to this book in the first place. The one thing I didn't like about the book cover was the girl's blonde hair showing at the top right corner. It just looks really awkward considering her eyebrows are much darker, no? At first I thought that her hair was the wall behind her, but then realized it wasn't and was like, "Hmm...weird."

Originality- 8/10
Cover- 9/10

  1. Yeah it was a little hard to get into. I think what would have made it better if the guy realy wasn't her brother and they fall in love. Yes I know, I like love stories and want the guy and girl to end up together. But saying they were brother and sister I knew that wouldn't happen! LOL Maybe the blonde hair and dark eyebrows, she must dye her hair! LOL

  2. This book sounds really cute! I think I've seen it around but never put it on my wish list. Thanks for the little reminder so I can do that! :)
