Review: One Night that Changes Everything

Lauren Barnholdt created a perfect blend between YA and Chick-Lit.

Angry and with good reason, Eliza, wrote a nasty post online about her ex-boyfriend and his crew. So when he calls her up to say they stole her purple notebook - containing her deep thoughts and top-list of things to do if she were brave -- she has no choice but to meet him and check a couple of things off the list to get it back before they post it online. 

One Night that Changes Everything is great fun, but there really isn't much of a character growth. The entire book takes place in twenty-four hours, entertaining us with karaoke dares and make out scenes with an Eminem wannabe.  I hope that girls don't get the wrong message reading this book. Because let's face it, hooking up with the most trendy guy in school or posting racy pics of yourself online does not make you brave. Brave is growing up, being honest, and doing the right thing even when you don't want to. 

Just enjoy the good laughs.
