used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that
sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I
am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional
readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and
it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to
figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means
re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the
books and majoring in being eighteen.
so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The
only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot
RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while
I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out
constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a
no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really
need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m
going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

My Thoughts :
Isabel is a child prodigy and finds out she managed fail the last exam to become a surgeon. Relaxing is not a word in her vocabulary ever since she was little she was studying or learning something. Shes never really had normal experiences and during this down time she's going to try to do normal things girls her age do and re enters college. Isabel may be a genius in the medical area but not so much when it comes to social situations. In college with the help of her RA, Marsh she learns how to be a bit more social and learns more about her self and her family even when things are falling apart.
This book was pretty funny and I couldn't help but laugh a couple times earning myself a couple of stink eyes from the random people around me. So as a warning you might not want to read this in public if you don't want to seem like a random laughing weirdo :-). This book was great. I loved the characters, this book was fast paced and there was never a dull moment. I liked that this book was a unique read. I loved the connection between Marsh and Isabel. I loved everything about this book and highly recommend you lovely readers to check it out. 5 of 5 stars!
