review || SIGNS POINT TO YES { blog tour } by Sandy Hall

Swoon Romance | October 20, 2015 | Young Adult Romance


The author of A Little Something Different brings you the most adorkable romance ever.

Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She’s babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.

Teo doesn’t dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo’s pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he’ll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane’s house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she’s terrified of how her parents will react.

In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane’s Magic 8 ball can’t give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.

I’m a teen librarian from New Jersey where I was born and raised. I have a BA in Communication and a Master of Library and Information Science from Rutgers University. When I’m not writing, or teen librarian-ing, I enjoy reading, slot machines, marathoning TV shows, and long scrolls through Tumblr. A LITTLE SOMETHING DIFFERENT is my first novel.

{ review } .

This was a sweet young adult story that deals with young adult drama -- Jane develops a crush on Teo; Teo is friend's with Jane's enemy, who is the reason Teo and Jane's friendship fell apart. In the midst of trying to juggle the cute girl and his best friend, Teo is also trying to find his birth father. Quite a bit going on for teen Teo (...but not something that is out of the ordinary or unlikely). The story line was simple yet dramatic enough for a couple of young adults, and the dialogue felt appropriate for the age group.

Sandy did a good job with this teen drama, and I found it cute the way she incorporated Jane's Magic 8 ball -- we've all asked questions over and over (maybe not to the extent Jane relies on it but..). Granted, my answers were almost always "Concentrate and Try Again", or "Very Doubtful" (my personal fave).

  1. Thanks for hosting today, Mignon! Lovely review! :)

  2. Hmm, I can't remember any responses from a Magic 8 ball. I am not sure if it was my family, school, or generation, but I never really used one.

    1. I think the one I played with was my cousin's, but I always found it annoying to get the same response over and over! My mother refused to buy one for my brother and I ;)
