Sedemnajst-letna Caymen Meyers preučuje bogataše kar tako, kot ekspriment. Po letih opazovanja je prepričana, da so uporabni le za eno stvar- porabljanje denarja za neuporabne stvari, kot so porcelanaste punčke v mamini trgovini.

Zato takoj, ko v trgovino vstopi Xander Spence, da bi kupil eno teh punčk za svojo babico, Caymen sprevidi, da je nesramno bogat. Kljub njegovi očarljivosti in zanimanju, ki ga pokaže zanjo, ona ve, da njegovo zanimanje ni dolgoročno. To je ena izmed stvari, ki jo je naučila mama. Vendar Xander kar naprej prihaja nazaj, kljub njenemu prizadevanju, da ga odžene. Na njeno grozo pa začne v njegovi družbi celo uživati.

Zaveda pa se, da mama ne sme izvedeti za to, saj ne bi odobravala. Želi si, da bi se Caymen družila s katerim izmed fantov, ki niso bogati. Vendar ravno, ko jo Xander prepriča, da biti bogat ni nujno karakterska napaka, ugotovi, da ima denar večji vpliv v njunem razmerju, ko je mislila in Xander ni edini za katerega bi jo moralo skrbeti.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

 

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about. (source: Goodreads)



 

Knjigo sem že nekaj časa imela na mojem to-read listu, vendar zaradi kroničnega pomanjkanja časa je nisem uspela prebrati. No navsezadje pa sem jo le vzela v roke, predvsem zaradi platnice, ki mi je prav simpatična.

This book I had on my to-read list for too long. I just haven’t had enought time to read it, until now. Well I started reading it mostly because I liked the cover.


Pred branjem nisem o knjigi slišala nobenega mnenja, zato res nisem vedela, kaj naj pričakujem. Rečem lahko le, da sem bila pozitivno presenečena Smile To je bilo res zelo sladko in zabavno branje.
Najbolj me je navdušila sarkastična Caymen. Če bi jo srečala v resničnem življenju bi verjetno kaj hitro postali prijateljici, saj prav zares razumela njen smisel za humor.

Before reading I didn’t notice none reviews so I didn’t know what to expect. I must confess that I was really positively surprised Smile That was really sweet and fun read.
I liked sarcastic Caymen the most. If I met her in real life, we would definitely becomes friends. I totally understand her dry humour.

Zgodba ni nekaj še neslišanega, ampak takšne lahkotne zgodbe so ravno pravšnje za čas božiča. Revno dekle spozna bogataša, zaljubita se in … Ne, ne bom ti razkrila, kaj se zgodi.

The story itself isn’t something unheard before, but is just the kind of book you can read in Christmas time. Poor girl meets rich boy, they fall in love and … Oh no, I’m not going to spoil it to you.


Lahkotno branje, ki pa ni nek literarni vrhunec ocenim z:
My rating is:
