Tangled

Tangled, by Carolyn Mackler.

As I waited for her to burst through the door, I wondered whether this was it. My big break. The thing that'll finally make everything better.

Carolyn Macker's books are generally interesting, but this one was particularly so because she broke the book up into four parts, with each of the main characters having their own section. The events and people in each section intersected, however, which is what made it so interesting. Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen are all very different people, but their lives intersect when they meet in Paradise (a Caribbean resort). Jena and Dakota hook up; he then dumps her for Skye, who isn't really interested; and Owen doesn't want to be there at all, and spends most of his time on his laptop in the business center. The story continues on after their April week in Paradise, however, and each character tells their story in a different month, up until July.

It was a little disappointing that each character only got 1/4 of the book for us to "get inside their heads," but I did like how all the storylines intersected, for the most part.

3 stars out of 5.
