I really enjoyed this story because my high school days were very similar to Wren's. With the pressure of deciding what colleges to apply to and trying to figure out what you wanted to do with your life. I was also the "quiet," one during my high school days. Boy have things changed hahah.
The Promise of Amazing was a great coming of age story with a mixture of just the right about of romance. There were plenty of comments to make you smile, and moments that made you laugh. Then there were moments that were just so cheesy, but just as good. Honestly I have to admit that I found myself more drawn to Grayson and his story more so than Wren's. I loved seeing how Grayson dealt his disappointing his family, and realizing that regardless of his failures his family did actually love him. I especially loved seeing Grayson interact with his half-siblings. There are some amazing side characters thrown into the mix, with some that you just love to hate. All in all this was a fun, sweet and quick read that I recommend to others.
