1 crush on your best friend +
1 gorgeous, scheming new girl +
1 Mathletics competition =
1 big mess

Ashley Price doesn’t have much in life after being bullied so hard she had to leave her old school to live with her aunt and uncle in Pittsburgh. But the camera she borrowed from her best friend and secret crush Brendan, and her off the charts math abilities, make things a lot more bearable. Plus, since Brendan is the captain, making the school Mathletes team should be easy.
But when gorgeous new girl Sofia rolls in and steals Brendan, Ashley's place on the team, and her fragile foothold on the Mansfield Park Prep social totem pole, it’s on. Sofia is everything Ashley left her old school to escape. The only thing Ashley didn’t count on is Sofia’s sexy twin brother Vincent.
Vincent is not only the hottest boy in school, he’s charming, sweet, and he’s got his eye on Ashley. He’s also not taking no for an answer. There's no real reason Ashley shouldn't like Vincent, but with the battle lines being drawn between her and Sofia, Ashley’s not sure which side he’s on. Or which side she wants him to be on.
She does know Sofia is trouble with a capital T, and she’s determined to make Brendan see it.
My opinon

Ashley is this cute girl obsessed with mathematics and his best friend Brendan.
She doesn't trust people easily and she doesn't have a lot of friends since she was bullied in her previous school. The only one she has is Brendan, and she's madly in love with him, but he's clueless.
So a new year is about to begin and there are two new kids at school. Brothers. One girl, one boy. They are perfect, hot and smart, funny and loved by everyone.
The the girl, Sophie, starts to flirt with Brendan. And the boy, Vincent, with Ashley.
AT first Ashley is broken hearted since Brendan is drooling for Sophie all the time. But then Vincent comes and he's so sweet and perfect and nice and she can't waste that opportunity when every other girl in the school is dying for him and he only has eyes her.
Anyway, with all that, the drama begins.
Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
I have to say I didn't what to expect form this book but it was a really nice surprise, it made me like a little bit more maths but they're still mean to me so… The math theme is a good original thing and it's cool because in that school Ashley's in being in the Mathletes is considered a cool thing.
The characters are awesome, they're normal teenagers (a little bit smarter tho) that like to party (or maybe not) and have a lot of drama in their lives.
Every night you turned me down was worth it, if all I ever get is just this one.
I liked Ashley, she wasn't a super strong girl everyone loves as a character. But she was real, a normal teenager with a conflicted life.
I the other hand, I loved Brendan too, but he was very naive and so clueless sometimes, I just wanted to slap him and tell him "Open your fucking eyes".
Vincent and Sophie… oh these two. I never totally understood Vincent and his weird ideas but I loved him most part of the book. Sophie? I hated her all along.
The book has a good size and it's easy to read and intriguing enough to make you want to read more.
In conclusion, I really liked it, it was a nice chick lit and I recommend it to everyone who wants to read something lovely, light and with a bit of math humor (I loved the jokes).

About the author
Web | Twitter | Goodreads
Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.
Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)
