What it's about?:
There are no mistakes in love.
Captain of the soccer team, president of the Debate Club, contender for valedictorian: Taylor's always pushed herself to be perfect. After all, that's what is expected of a senator's daughter. But one impulsive decision-one lie to cover for her boyfriend-and Taylor's kicked out of private school. Everything she's worked so hard for is gone, and now she's starting over at Hundred Oaks High.
Soccer has always been Taylor's escape from the pressures of school and family, but it's hard to fit in and play on a team that used to be her rival. The only person who seems to understand all that she's going through is her older brother's best friend, Ezra. Taylor's had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. But it's hard to trust after having been betrayed. Will Taylor repeat her past mistakes or can she score a fresh start?

My Thoughts:
I love the Hundred Oak series. I've read every single one, so when I got the chance to read this book, I jumped on it.

I love Miranda's books because they are always so real. She has a way of writing to make you believe that you could easily be the mail character. 
\\\To everyone on the outside Taylor has the "perfect" life. She's a senators daughter and that puts her under a microscope. Taylor made a mistake by taking the fall her boyfriend, resulting in her getting kicked out of the uber private school she attended. What started out as a bad thing, turned out to be one of the best things for Taylor. It allowed her to become herself. Taylor had the chance to realize that everyone makes mistakes and that one mistake doesn't have to define who you are. Taylor was such an amazing character. Sometimes you just have to make the best out of your situation and Taylor accomplishes that in so many ways. This is series that everyone should read. I can't wait to see what this author comes up with next.
