In a Nut Shell...
Cute and sweet story, but it was a little boring at times.

Being one of many who love making lists and categorizing things most of the time, I thought it was real cute that Chloe loved to do that as well because her lists were absolutely hilarious that I couldn't help but laugh. The lists added a nice touch to the story and made it more interesting.
I did adore the characters. Chloe with all her crush on Tyson and her silly list-obsessed mind, Tyson being all charming and way too good to be true, Micah being nerdy and adorkable, Sammie with all her tough exterior, Zaina's timidness and Gabs with his obsession with betting. They were one crazy bunch of kids! Most of the time, I loved their discussions, for in general they were weird in a good way. Though, it got a tad too exaggerated which made it hard to believe. Still they all were very intriguing characters.
The storyline was nice and fluffy, and I liked a nice hint of suspense and mystery added in the mix. The pace was nice in general, a little slow at times, but I thought it wasn't much of a problem. I did, however, hope for more excitement, but again, they were stuck in a grocery store and the story took place within a span of one day, so I guess the option was limited.
In short, it was a nice, hilarious book that didn't take much time for me to finish. I think it's a great choice for those who are looking for a light, fluffy read.
