(4) Hannah's first day of senior year is shaping up to be stressful. Seeing ex-boyfriend Sebastian will be bad enough, but worse is facing her best friend, Ava, and Ava's boyfriend, Noah--who Hannah just kissed. First-person narration flashing between the daunting school day and the months prior explains the messy situation. Generic plotting is buoyed by fresh dialogue and entertaining dramatics.
