Isla and the Happily Ever After is about a girl named Isla who has a major crush on this guy named Josh. She finally talks to him one day after having a crush on him since about freshmen year. This book is about their struggles as a couple, dealing with the classic problems (family, their futures, and the possibility of being pulled apart).
Now with that summary complete, I can share my opinion on this book. If I’m being totally honest here, this book was horrible. First off, Isla is so desperate for a guy she doesn’t really know. I understand crushes, but she basically stalks him in the beginning of the book. After that, she talks to him and they go on a couple of dates. He’s a classic bad boy. He has a skull and crossbones tattoo and skips school to work on his art. I have no problem with that if he didn’t have pictures that he drew of his ex-girlfriend in his room. Perfect way to win a lady, show her pictures of your ex-girlfriend. Then there’s the issue with Isla’s male friend. I get having a male friend, but he would come into her room and sleep next to her. That’s a little weird, right? Near the end she breaks up with Josh and is completely miserable. The book just made no sense to me. If I had to rate I would give it a 1.5.
