The narrator did a good job; it was a good listening experience.
Overall, I enjoyed this story, but it is a bit frustrating in the beginning. Cameron is a very young 17 and is finally realizing that guys exist and she’s attracted to them; especially her brother’s best friend, Jake. She is very un-self aware and her common sense isn’t the best. She does grow throughout the story though; she’s just on the extreme side of “tomboy”. Jake really sucks in the beginning. He hooks up with another girl in Cameron’s room, but he supposedly wants Cameron. Stupid boy! So, I get how Cameron doesn’t feel she can trust his intentions. Jake being a moron happens towards the beginning and he does show his feelings, so in the end, I liked him. The romance is sweet and they have good chemistry. So, the characters are young and still immature, but they got better as the story progressed, so I enjoyed this story. The writing isn’t amazing, but it’s a decent story. I would’ve even loved a bit more in the ending; what was there is good, but a little more would’ve been great!

Who doesn’t love a little teenage angst?! Cam is a tomboy and a girl after my own heart! I loved Cam and Jake together. They were absolute perfection! Sarah Sampino’s narration was spot on! I enjoyed this book!

I really enjoyed this YA listen. It was felt very real dealing with realife teen issues and how life is. I was sucked into this story from start to finish. I found myself smiling most the book. I loved Cam and Jake’s story so much. What made the book was that the author went more into the future and just didn’t end it with no future look. This is a first with this author and I will be looking into more of her books. The narrator did a great job!

Cameron is a tomboy, like sports and most of her friends are boys. When her twin brother’s best friend Jake is caught in her bedroom with another girl, she becomes annoyed, but is it because he was in her bed? Or is it because it wasn’t her? This is sweet story of growing up, self realization and figuring out who you really are. I enjoyed Cam as she matured and realized what life would have in store for her. Her journey is one that I found easily relatable, and I fell back into that time of insecurity as a teen. With his family life and his mature outlook, Jake is more complex than I expected. Together, we get a little teenage angst and enjoy watching their relationship grow as they get older. Breakout character is Kyle, Cam’s best friend. What a great personality he brings in!
Sarah Sampino’s performance of Tomboy is wonderful. I love her voice. She easily modeled her characters with that teen angst using voices that were a good fit for the age of Cam and Jake. I like her pace and style of narration, giving my ears hours of enjoyment.
