I like reading books about people my age because it is easier to relate to the story, and the experience of reading the book is much more enjoyable if you're living through it now than if you already went through it. I liked this book because I like reading about drama but not being caught in the middle of it, so it was a breath of fresh air because every single dramatic thing that has occurred in my family or friends, I was caught in the smack dab middle of it.
It felt nice reading about someone else being in the position. The most important quote from the book is: I mean, I did it over the summer while I was visiting her. But the actual four-wheeling I did was at this guy Greg's house. Sep 21, Kim Crawford added it.

- Devon Delaney Should Totally Know Better?
Devon Delaney has a bad habit of lying. Does that make her a bad person? She lies her way to the A-list table, makes up a fake boyfriend first book and a fake ex-boyfriend second book, which is funny because now she's had more fake boyfriends than real ones just so she can fit in the popular crowd. I am not trying to justify her actions but I do underst Do you ever get days when you remember your high school or teenage days and you think to yourself, thank God it's over?
I am not trying to justify her actions but I do understand her enough to care for her. By the second book, I felt like smacking Devon or Devi, as her cool friends call her in the head and asking her, haven't you had enough of the lies? But Devon had the support of her two BFFs in the sequel, something she kinda screwed up with in the first book. I loved the first book. I have fond memories of reading it around 7 years ago which is why it looks battered -- see below and enjoying it so much.
It was one of the few books that my non-reader sisters also read so that's a plus. Devon was a really funny protagonist, albeit frustrating because I'm pretty sure she could've gotten out of her predicament faster if she just tried to be more honest. But she was funny and kind.
The book also has a tear-jerking moment that involved Devon and her even funnier sister, Katie. Luke, on the other hand, provided the sweet moments in the book. I liked him a lot; I even listed him down as one of the best book boyfriends out there. How did the sequel fare? I was annoyed that Devon still hasn't learned her lesson but to be fare, the story took place only two weeks after the first book so her relationship with Luke was still pretty new and thus, not yet strong.
Devon now has two BFFs who are really nothing like her one's dorky, one's A-list cool but they're a solid trio. Devon has a good boyfriend although really, note-passing with your ex is not the way to go, Luke and parents that are slowly being more open to changes in Devon's life a.
The problem really lies in Devon's insecurity and paranoia. If she just asked, then she wouldn't assume. If she didn't assume, then she wouldn't be paranoid. If she weren't paranoid, none of the problems she faced wouldn't have happened and she wouldn't stressed over nothing. But she did learn her lesson this time, and I don't see a third book in the horizon. It makes up for a good story but when I think about it, man, I'm so glad I'm older. There's this freedom that comes along with adulthood. For one, you don't spend a lot of time fitting in and you're more comfortable with who you are and who you've become.
I'm getting side-tracked here But hey, should you be in need of something light and quick, the two-part Devon Delaney series is a good choice. Perfect for a weekend afternoon. Mar 15, Hazim added it Shelves: Rebecca-the same Devon Delany with her lies. She is so funny.

Devon Delaney Should Totally Know Better by Lauren Barnholdt
Bailey adds her "two-sense" into the situations, making Luke try even harder to impress Devon. Lie after lie, Devon's and Luke's relationship was all jumbled up. I think the moral of the story is to not lie, and if you make a mistake, acknowledge the fact that you did. May 12, Crystal rated it it was amazing. Aug 10, Samantha rated it it was ok. Devon Delaney has a problem. Also, she is SUPER protective of her boyfriend, and while she says she wants to be mature about letting him have girl friends in his life, she so doesn't trust any of them.
Yes, she's a middle-schooler, but honestly? I feel like she needs to avoid this boyfriend drama and get her own issues sorted out first. Thankfully, she finally came clean, and miraculously, the ending wa Devon Delaney has a problem. Thankfully, she finally came clean, and miraculously, the ending was happy. I totally thought Luke should let her go gently, of course, not dumping her - she doesn't deserve that, as confused and conflicted as she might be , and let her be her own person for a while.
Anyway, this book was basically the same as the first one, only now I'm convinced that I would not Devon in my life - she tends to create drama where drama does not exist.

To view it, click here. This book was awesome! I agree with most readers that Devon should know not to lie, from last time. She didn't learn her lesson, but I kind of understand her. Sometimes it's scary to ask for the truth. You don't exactly know what's the truth. You don't know when someone is lying to you, you never know when your trust is shattered from that experience.
I thought it was cool of how Devon helped Mel out of private school, with the presentation. They should have done that from the start instead of l This book was awesome! They should have done that from the start instead of lying. Lying can turn things into a mess instead of making things better. You have to know when t lie and when to tell the truth. May 08, Minken rated it liked it. Now I've read the second book and I'm almost seventeen. Honestly it wasn't as good when I was more mature.
But still it was nice and nostalgic. It was a nice light read with lovable characters.
