Start reading A Little Less Girl on your Kindle in under a minute. I really enjoyed the writing and mystery in this book but I wished it would have expanded a little bit on the romance element and paced the ending a little bit. The book was told in both Dani and Jake's POV (alternating chapters) and that worked really well for this book because they each had a different view on Amy's death.

There has not been one book by Tess Oliver that I have not loved! This is a YA genre book and it was a pretty quick and good read that left me content with how things ended.

A Little Less Girl book. Everything has always come easy to Jake West  . I was willing to mostly overlook this when I thought Ms. Oliver a teen because even my own grammatical knowledge as a teen was far inferior to that of now. But when I discovered that not only is Ms. Oliver an adult, but a teacher to boot? To say I was disgusted would be a tragic understatement. I'm gonna be brutally honest and say Ms. Oliver is terrible with commas.

Amy is dead. The police and town folks have decided it was suicide. She was after all hurt by words spoken by her love crush, Jake. She had weight issues, dead parent issues and was a loner, and when she heard Jake her dream boy say those horrid words she went into a deep place and never came out.
Dani and her mom have had a long difficult life. They inherited the house Amy lived in, it belonged to their grandmother. Amy and Dani were cousins, close till Dani's mother moved away. When Dani moved in her number one gaol was to make Jake pay for his causing the death of her best friend and cousin.
Jake, the all American boy top of the pack at school the boy most likely to win has slipped in his status since last year when Amy died. The town whispers behind his back, some of his teachers treat him like he's dangerous. He will never forgive himself for his words so he doesn't expect others to.
Dani reads her cousins diary and finds herself drawn to the very boy she wants to destroy. She is drawn to him, and his friends, for better of for worse she must find out the truth because Amy's diary doesn't sound like she committed suicide to her.
Friendship, trust, sexual predators, food obsession, drugs and abuse, this little books touches so many off center subjects. The mystery was very well done, I was mislead, and loved that. This is a YA book with a grip that held me to the very end. I had to know what happened to Amy.

There has not been one book by Tess Oliver that I have not loved! This is a YA genre book and it was a pretty quick and good read that left me content with how things ended. This book starts out with Dani and her mother moving into her recently deceased grandmother's house and since Dani has had a rough life moving all the time she is ready to have a home although, ideally she would rather have her cousin and grandmother still there! The only thing that is not happy with the situation is shortly before her grandmother died Dani's very close cousin Amy supposedly committed suicide, but Dani does not believe that for a minute so she aims to find out the truth. Enter Jake he is hot, handsome, seems perfect in every way, his actions contradict everything Dani has believed or heard about him although the town blames him for the suicide of Dani's cousin because Amy had an almost obsessive infatuation for Jake. Dani moves to town hell bent on hating Jake and making him suffer but what she finds out is he is not what the rumors have made him out to be! Can Dani uncover the truth and not feel like she is betraying her cousin when her feelings for Jake grow every day? This was a great book, it does have some dark discussions about suicide, death, possible not appropriate relations but overall this is a very clean YA genre book!

I really enjoyed the writing and mystery in this book but I wished it would have expanded a little bit on the romance element and paced the ending a little bit. The book was told in both Dani and Jake's POV (alternating chapters) and that worked really well for this book because they each had a different view on Amy's death. Jake lives next to where Amy lived prior to her death and Dani is her cousin and best friend but hadn't spent a lot of time with her leading up to her death. During many of the early chapters from Dani's POV, she read entries from Amy's diary which also helped immensely in furthering the story since Amy has already died when the book begins.

Dani is a smart and witty girl but she carries a little bit of a chip on her shoulder because she did not have the best upbringing. Her mom was a drug addict and Dani spent some time in less than desirable foster homes. She and her mom have come to live in grandma and Amy's old house to start a new life; Dani enjoys the normalcy it brings and the chance to get to the bottom of what happened to Amy. I loved Dani's confidence and love she had for her cousin.

Jake is a popular guy that doesn't seem to relish in his popularity. He is in no way superficial and seems to genuinely care for his friends and classmates. It is really too bad that most of the people in town have convinced themselves that he is in some way responsible for Amy's death. Her death has taken a toll on him and he doesn't care as much about his grades or swimming; he can't wait to get out of his small town and run away from all the rumors.

Dani blames Jake at first but her ability to forgive and see people for who they really are allowed her to free Jake to some extent. Their closeness and mutual respect was evident and I was rooting for them to become a couple. Jake ended up saving her more than once and he was truly the knight in shining armor that Amy had dreamed of.

The mystery element in this one kept me going but once the pieces fell into place, it was quickly solved and then what I had been waiting for much of the book actually happened and then it was just done. If the end had been paced a little better, I would have liked this one a lot more.

I wanted to like this book a little more than I actually did. I liked the premise behind it, and I liked Jake. He wasn't the typical popular boy that you see in a lot of books. He was genuinely nice, and it was easy to see why people liked him. Not just because he was good looking, but because he had the personality to back it up. I liked Dani for the same reasons, she was beautiful on the outside and the inside, mostly because of the way she was raised, or raising her mother, however you wanted to look at it.

However, I felt that the ending was rushed. It seemed to come out of left field, with no real build up or explanation. I would have loved to have seen it built up a bit more. It needed more hints and clues. There were plenty as to why everyone thought Jake was responsible, but not so much for the way it really went. I would have also preferred to see a bit more of the romance actually there. It was the typical pining for each other, but being too scared to act on it. I think it might have been sweeter if it had been given more time to grow.
