14. The Guy Next Door by Carol Culver

This book is the classic. Boy and girl used to be friends. Girl falls in love. She thinks that the boy doesn't really know she exists and then she plots to get him to fall in love with her. Except this ones a little different. In this book you can see the boy's point of view too. Ethan is the one guy that Maggie knew more than anyone. They grew up together.

She always wanted him, but she never had the courage to go for it. With her lack of cash and looks, she's not even acknowledged. But then she gets a makeover, with some help from her father and friends. The perfect chance to take the plunge comes when she and Ethan start hanging out on the choir trip to Hawaii. How romantic, huh? She just needs to figure out how she's gonna do this. Fair read.

RATING: 3.5 stars
