This book came in the mail yesterday and I stayed up quite late to finish it. I had to see if and how Emily would finally get her man (Fang, of course!) I knew early in the first book that Fang was the sweetest guy she'd ever have the good fortune to meet, and I'm glad Emily finally figured that out, too. I liked that even though Devon wanted to date Emily, he was honest and told her how Fang felt about her. She sometimes needs help seeing what everyone else sees. I think every girl needs friends like Devon and Fang. It's a shame that Devon isn't in England for this whole book, but at least his presence is felt via his steady, supportive e-mails. Holly and Dru are also around offering advice and unconditional friendship. Fang is as great as he always was, and if Emily ever decides she doesn't want him anymore, I'll take him!
After having just finished some adult books while waiting for this book to be released, I forgot how funny and typical teenager-like Emily is. I love how she thinks she's so grown up and even likes to counsel her shyer friend Hope about men. But we the readers see Emily make silly, impulsive decisions that get her into trouble time after time. This book has Emily working in a less-than-ideal museum job, and the destruction that follows in her wake is amusing, as always. I think she's done some maturing since she arrived in England, and I can't wait to see how she turns out. I'm so glad to hear Katie Maxwell has decided to write a fifth book for this series. I want to see how Emily gets through her senior year and I hope she stays close with all her English friends. Fans of this series won't be disappointed!

Bought this for a teenage relative.Reviewed in the United States on 22 June 2010
As an adult reader, I enjoy reading Katie Macalister's adult novels. I found out through our local library she wrote young adult novels under the pen name Katie Maxwell. I decided to buy all the books I could and sent them on to the teenage nieces in our family to read. This was one of the novels I sent and yes, I read it before sending. It was a great read for ages 15-17, I don't recommend sending for younger than 15 there are some drinking and references to sexual encounters in some of her novels. But hey, to each their own.
Great BookReviewed in the United States on 20 December 2011
This whole series of books are great for older teenagers or adults. Half the time I'm laughing out loud while I'm reading (and have to stop to wipe my eyes even). She is a great writer, and always has morals, and hilarious happenings in this series (and in other series of hers that I've read). As long as she keeps writing, I'll keep buying and reading her books.
