This book had the typical YA formula: super hot popular boy falls for plain girl who is destined for something big. Things did change a little bit, but it's still pretty formulaic. I wish that the story was a little bit more original about that, but alas, I still liked this book. It was definitely one of the better YA books that I read. So, I guess after all, I still enjoyed it for the most part and I'm looking forward to the next books in the series.
