    Oh Jack Weyland.. where does he get the ideas for these books? A handsome tv star who thinks he dies and then falls in love with a girl while pretending to be her cousin? It was definitely a fun, easy read and it wasn't super cheesy like some of his other books. My one complaint was that I felt like the ending was too abrupt. I would have liked more closure on the story. At the same time the ending was kind of cute. :)

    This book had me literally cracking up. I was laughing so hard that tears were coming from my eyes. Normally Jack Weyland's books are realistic, rather heavy, and deal with real life, horrible problems. This book had his style, but it was funnier and lighter than most of his other ones ... I LOVED IT!! It's definitely one of my favorites by him.

    Its been so long since I read this book I have forgotten a lot of it. As I recall tho' I was not too crazy about it. Its about a 19 year old guy that is in TV. He sees a beautiful girl, meets her and finds out she is a Mormon. He can have about any girl he wants but has never met one quite like Andrea. He really is not her type so its hard for them to find common ground. O.K. book

    I don't think I have laughed so much in a book for a long time. In a bit unrealistic plot, Jack Weyland has brought together an entertaining novel which brings across gospel standards and missionary work. Andrea is a beautiful girl who doesn't try too hard to be beautiful and Jake notices how different she is. He is knocked over by her. The ending is very heart warming.

    Many people like Jack Weyland, but I am not among them. If you do, however, you may like this book and I am glad for you. Me, on the other hand, I hated it! There are very few books I can say that about, but this one was mindless drivel! Not only did it not offer any real depth the story was contrived and completely beyond reality.

    This book might be good if you are:A: A teenaged girlB: ReligiousC: Someone who likes mindless reading. None of the above fits. I read the first few chapters and then the last chapter and that was a big waste of my time.

    This is the one I liked the least of all the Jack Weyland books I read. Too far fetched but for sure I know the right date as to when I read it. I was in the hospital with an amsthma attack after my freshman year soccer try-outs.

    Sometimes a girl is just in the mood for a cheezy chick-flick book. I don't know that this one quite hit the spot, but I was entertained by the fact that the author was able to keep up "I don't realize I'm not dead" theme for a good 20 pages.

    You know, as cheesy as this book is, I just love it. I think I have read it at least a few times now, and I just get butterflies when I read and laugh at how silly this bosy is. It is a quick, fun read.

    I read this as a teenager and thought it was a really cute romance book. I love Jack Weyland. He definitely knows how to write for the youth of the church.

    I am fine suspending reality, but this was a little too much even for me. It just wasn't very realistic. If I were her parents I wouldn't be very happy about this union.

    I read most of Weylands books when I was in high school. Easy, fast reads. A lot of them have romance in them. Almost all have a LDS person in them- the author is LDS.

    I loved the 'near-death experience' confusion early on in the story. The play on words is very fun.

    This is one of my favorite books. It is another Jack Weyland so it has a great message. This book has a very funny twist that made me laugh out loud.
