All of this quite annoyed me in the first third of the book. It gets a bit better afterwards concerning the illogical things. Except for the thing that Tammy does not act like a 16 year old but rather seems to be a twenty-something. Despite her being to insecure about herself in the beginning, she is suddenly very self-confident and mature. If you can overlook that, you can also enjoy this Teenager-"First Love"-Romance.
Jan 07, Jypsy rated it it was ok. It's a very typical rich girl meets guy scenario. It's cute but fits into a mold. It's an okay read. Jan 25, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: z , arc-giv-goodreads. I needed that book to remind me how first love is magical. Sure, the way Tammy and Gary meet isn't perfect, but their story isn't either and that is what makes it I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
And I can't be more honest than saying I loved it. I devoured the book, couldn't put it down. So, this was a really cute story, although not very realistic, but I guess it wasn't supposed to be realistic, right? I didn't like Tammy very much in the beginning. I totally didn't get her choice not to tell the truth to the police.
She was really dumb. And it really hurt Gary in more ways than one. I felt his hurt and sense of betrayal. She let him down, even though I don't think she realized it at the time. She was too naive. Anyway, I got to like her more as she did her best to help Bill, Jack and Gary be a family. Gary was so sweet. Yeah, he's got a bad temper, especially with Bill, and especially for the first half of the book.
But it still shows he's a good guy with a big heart. He's just too scared to get hurt again. Tammy and Gary together were so sweet, although the insta-love sort of bothered me a little at times. Like, after only 12 hours they already said "I love you". Well, I understand the insta-connection, some sort of fate working on them, that pull, that attraction towards each other. But they didn't know anything about each other, how could they love each other already?
But I guess it's still part of it being fiction, right? Still, I really liked Tammy and Gary as a couple. Dating Down is a really sweet and fun book that restored a little of my faith in the world. I have to say, I started out this book cringing at Gary and not really liking him, but was pleasantly surprised to see how much he grew Dating Down is a really sweet and fun book that restored a little of my faith in the world.
I have to say, I started out this book cringing at Gary and not really liking him, but was pleasantly surprised to see how much he grew on me through the course of the book. But the side of Gary that comes out as he gets closer and closer to Tammy is just too sweet to resist. By the end of the book, I was really rooting for them to find a way to make it all work somehow. I especially loved how the book started with Tammy bringing Gary into her world, and ended with him bringing her into his.
It was cool to see everything come around full circle. Probably my least favorite part about the story is the ending, which seemed very abrupt. I also needed a little bit more time to cool down after the scene at the corner store, and a few more scenes would have helped with that. Other than that, the ending is satisfying, though.
Dating Down is a great romance with a lot of lighthearted moments that contrast the depth of the characters perfectly. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Apr 05, Thehappymeerkat rated it it was amazing Shelves: teen , romance. I was sent a free copy of this book by the author. The only problem is he doesn't really exist, except in the pages of her favourite novels.
On the night of the school dance Tammy runs away but meets Gary who manages to agree to become Ralph for one night, but is Gary the right guy for Tammy? This is a surprisingly good read which had me turning the pag I was sent a free copy of this book by the author. This is a surprisingly good read which had me turning the pages throughout. The story chapters alternate between Tammy and Gary, each chapter being told in the first person and in the present tense.
I didn't warm to Tammy's character right away. I did relate to her feelings of loneliness and wanting to be in the 'it' crowd but I didn't feel as if I could connect with her character as much as Gary's. Gary is from the opposite end of the wealth spectrum. Although his character is a little unlikable because of his initial actions and general mood I did feel he was very real compared to Tammy.
I really liked the story of the two worlds of rich and poor colliding and the unlikely romance that blossomed between the two characters. The story is very exciting, it's certainly more than just a love story and delves deeper into the effects of death and pain on people. I really liked Gary's story throughout and although the likelihood of the overall plot ever coming true is quite slim, I've always liked fiction like this. The book is really fast paced and very gripping, I read it all in one day!
There's occasional use of the f swear word as well as milder and some violence, sex and alcohol use mentioned though nothing graphic. The book has such an original feel to it and I'm really enjoying Dunn's novels as they read very differently to most YA I read and her characters, even if seemingly unlikable at first, always have their charms. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes reading YA fiction with an original feel.
Although I would have preferred Tammy's character to be a little more complex I still enjoyed this especially the ending. Though the last chapter was short, the previous chapters were both shocking and exciting it just made me enjoy this all the more. Second, I'm SO glad I was able to discover this book because I truly enjoyed it from start to finish.
This is like a modern Romeo and Juliet. Two lovers from two different groups wanting to be together. Tammy is rich and has it all while Gary is the opposite. They are brought together by one event that changes not only their life but those surrounding them too. One of my favorite aspects of the book was the layout. Alex Dunn wrote the book in chapters told from each of the characters while breaking it down by times in the day to show how the story progresses.
A second aspect I loved about the book is how Alex Dunn was able to write this story that played with my emotions. I found myself laughing at times, near tears at times, and nervous at times. It was nicely written and I enjoyed the emotion ride.
Each and every minute of it. The third aspect I liked is how simple the book was. It tells a simple romance story in a page-turner book. A romance story that has so much to offer to the readers. A wonderful story for each reader who decide to read it. Looking for heart warming Young Adult Romance book which is high on drama and emotional quotient, this is the book which you must consider reading. I'll highly recommend this book.
Dating Down is a really simple, sweet and gripping romance book which you can enjoy while travelling.

Unlike other novels where you immediately understand that the story is so good that it can't be happening in the real world but the story line followed in Dating Down seems true which can actually happen in the real world and is much more relatable. This is one such book which I find it extremely difficult to keep down. It is not the story of this book which makes this book brilliant, it is the way in which the story is being portrayed and written.
Another great book from Alex Dunn. This book is very well written and is full of drama. Also this book does highlights some of the serious issues which are prevailing in the society in a fun and playful way. To know more about the characters, story line, narration, writing style, etc. The novella is a fast-paced emotional read.
Tammy and Gary come from very different worlds. She lives a life of privilege yet she is missing meaningful connections. Gary is surviving barely as he has had many trying obstacles. Their initial relationship starts off as a lie but somehow and unexpectedly changes for both of them.
Perhaps they can move forward together and heal. A creative story about first love. Dating Down is character driven and is told via Tammy and Gary's point of view. Their voices are honest and revealing. The secondary add depth as well. Tammy finds happiness in her romance novels.
Can she find happiness in the real world? This reminded me of how it was to first fall in love with books and with someone. No words can describe that feeling but Alex Dunn was able to to do it beautifully. She writes in a way that you can feel the characters joy and sadness in every chapter, every word. I want everyone to read this book because we need the loves in this book to be in this world again. Won in the Goodreads Giveaways. Great story. Was annoyed with the heroine for not letting Gary know the thugs were at the hospital watching them.
He could have died because of it. Glad it was a happy ending though. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks NetGalley for sending this through! I'm going to go against all the stellar ratings I've seen for Dating Down and say quite bluntly, I did not enjoy this book.
This is a YA book that does not translate well into other genres. Maybe I've felt too comfortable with YA based on our recent experiences with books like The Hunger Games etc that have universal appeal. This one was written in such a manner that I really found it I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This one was written in such a manner that I really found it hard to appreciate, the tone being far too young for me to enjoy. Tammy is a teenager and runs into some trouble when she makes up a boyfriend. She sulks off and finds herself in even deeper trouble when some thugs try to rob her. The down on his luck ne'er do well Gary swoops in and saves her, and she's immediately in love with him. The feeling is mutual.
In an emulation of Romeo and Juliet, Tammy and Gary must traverse the complexities of their disparate backgrounds to meet in the middle and give their love a chance. I just wasn't buying it. This is the first book I got to read and review thanks to NetGalley.
Dating Down is an entertaining book. Really easy to go through, with real characters that care about real problems. This is something missing from many books nowadays, most characters in a lot of books barely have any concerns other than the main issue of the book. Here, we can see how they struggle with different angles of their lives, including the romantic side, of course. I'd say though, this book falls short in showing real This is the first book I got to read and review thanks to NetGalley.
I'd say though, this book falls short in showing real emotions. Tammy and Gary seem to feel superficially deep. With this, I mean that they feel intensely and fast whether it's love, rage or any other emotion , but it's not actually significant or meaningful since most big emotions take way more time than the time the book gives them. It made things feel rushed which made the book fall significantly in quality.
This was a cute little story, I honestly was hoping for something more though. I wish there was more emotional depth to it, Tammy and Gary fell in love so fast, im not a fan of the whole instalove thing, and i hate it when there is so much conflict and bad things that happen to the characters because of lack of communication. Tammy was very selfish and spoiled, and I never really saw any change in her, and Gary and his brother, they just accepted what Tammy did like nothing, what ever happened t This was a cute little story, I honestly was hoping for something more though.
Tammy was very selfish and spoiled, and I never really saw any change in her, and Gary and his brother, they just accepted what Tammy did like nothing, what ever happened to pride? This was a quick read, read it on a slow day at work and was finished with it pretty quickly.
I recommend it for the beach going person. A defeated girl meets a defeated boy but together they can change their worlds is how I think of Dating Down. The emotional take downs of both Gary and Tammy are painful and hurtful and describes in a manner that makes you feel the deep cuts to their hearts and psyches. Somehow, when the odds are against them, it all works out but not before a tale of teen drama and misunderstandings play out.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for a honest and fair review. I struggled to read this book I felt like even conversations between Tammy and Gary were awkward at best. They were both some immature that it all felt just unbelievable.
I wish there had been some thing for me to grasp a hold of in the story something that made it felt at all possible. There just wasn't. I'd didn't really have strong feelings about this book either way. It wasn't brilliant, but it wasn't terrible either. It had an interesting storyline although the characters felt a bit two-dimensional. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

I am going to start off by saying that writing what happens in a teenage girls head is extremely difficult. I am sure it is the same with a young guy's but I can't say I am an expert in that. This book was extremely difficult to get through. I basically had to force myself to keep going back because everything was just so over-the-top. Obviously everyone feels differently, but I felt that it was almost insulting This book was provided to me by NetGalley for free in exchange for an honest review.
Obviously everyone feels differently, but I felt that it was almost insulting to teenage girls the way this girl was fawning all over this guy. Yes when I was younger, of course I liked the bad boys and wanted to "fix" them. What happened to me and all of my friends that felt like this is that eventually we matured and grew up and out of it.

I did not enjoy this book. Maybe a teenager would enjoy this book but to me it was just a string of non-sensical phrases. I think the description of the book was more descriptive than the actual book in terms of the story. Okay, so I get it is supposed to read like poetry or something like text-messaging exchanges, but it literally made my head hurt to try to piece this together.

I just didn't feel connected to the MC or the story. Some of the poetry was good but the rest just lacked emotional impact. I usually enjoy verse novels but I'm lukewarm about this one.

This book suprised me and I actually liked it a lot. I can see it will be a style that people either love or hate.

Dating Down is the story of smart, artistic, high school student Samantha Henderson and her new, older boyfriend X. This Young Adult novel is told completely in verse. I loved it! May 29, Lana rated it liked it. Mar 18, Paige Beaudreault rated it really liked it. It was a nice read and I enjoyed the outcome of this story. Having received one did not affect my views of the novel. It's not surprising for a poetry lover like me to seek out and love verse novels as well.
Heck, I even seek out poetry-like elements in the prose novels I read because I'm all for lyrical and poetic prose. I didn't know that Dating Down was a verse novel. In fact, I skipped on it when I saw it on Netgalley but when I saw Krystianna of Downright Dystopian give it four stars, I decided to give it a whirl and requested it.
I then started reading it one night that I couldn't sleep because it was short. So when I discovered that it's actually a verse novel, I knew I was in for a treat. Treat me and spoil me was exactly what Dating Down did. Dating Down is told from the perspective of Sam Henderson, a shy high school senior who paints. And the daughter of a state senatorial candidate. The book starts with Sam telling us that this is about a boy, who won't be named, and who we'll call only with X.
Dating Down chronicles her crush on X, the hipster-boho college-aged barista on the coffee shop she frequents, and their imminent relationship. It all started out cute and sweet and sure, I was actually swooning because X is definitely smooth. But he was too smooth and too good to be true.
We later learn that X is actually a drug dealer. Sam is affronted by this but she eventually comes around to it and even starts using herself. Sam has been dealing with her mom's death, her father's eventual second marriage, the changes in her father and his lack of time for her, expectations, and quite possibly the one that nags her the most -- not living.
She feels like she's not living life to the fullest and she sees X as her getaway to do exactly this. X changed it all. While Sam gets lost in X's world, she's been ditching her friends April and Gavin, her sister duties to Melanie, her painting for her application for art school, and her father's campaign. She becomes so engrossed in X's world that she blows off her responsibilities and every other person in her life. It was evident that everything will come crashing down soon enough and while everything was expected, I give props to Stefanie Lyons to keeping up the ante and making us feel for Sam.
All I want too is for her to live her life but I don't want her to do it with X. But then, I can't even fault her for finding X the edgy and shiny thing that he is because he definitely is. For someone who's been bottling it up, falling in love with X is the most freeing thing she has ever done.
And if she's trying so hard not to lose him, I can definitely understand. Shit, I'm not doing this book any justice. Even though the plot's been done before, this book triumphs in its words. This is a verse novel done right. Full of imagery and certain passages can knock you out of your breath. I can't remember how many times I just marveled at the words and how many times I just wanted to stop reading and let the beauty wash me.
Lastly, the cover. I am greater than a shoe size. I am more interesting than a label. I am deeper than an opinion. I am more than a politician's daughter. I am smarter than a test score. I am more valuable than diamond earrings. I am larger than a fashion trend. I am stronger than a drug.

Short and Sweet: I'm developing a huge weakness for books told in poetic form, and this one goes right on my list of ones to recommend for that! It's a wonderful and emotional story that reads super quickly.

When she meets X, she can't stay away from him, an older, college-aged guy who seems to know everyone and has an irresistable bad boy edge She will try to change him, but she may just be pulled down with him. More than just her name, I relate to Samantha a lot. Growing up, I was very much seen as the good girl with the unrealistic dream ok, so I'm still sometimes seen as that haha.
It's exhausting having people try to force you onto a pedestal that you have no place being on, nor do you want to be there. Granted, no one in my family was running for office, so there wasn't nearly as much pressure than what Sam faces in this book.
I even had a similar-feeling relationship to an "X" that she does, minus the drugs and partying. What I really like about the story is that Sam isn't the only one facing an issue of "Dating Down". For me, I don't really consider dating anyone, regardless of status, dating down in terms of the actual person, but I do think we sometimes settle for a relationship that doesn't legitimately meet our needs or isn't truly healthy for us hence the Perks of Being a Wallflower "You accept the love you think you deserve".
Sam's two close friends are also facing that, and I love how the author parallels them when at first glance, the issues are so different. All of them are unhappy, but they all deal with it differently. The reason I gave this 4 hearts instead of 5 in the rhyming scheme. I really love how the author mixes it up and some of it is free verse , and most of it is wonderful, but there are times of just ABAB schemes, and those weirdly and irrationally bother me. It's such a weird and completely me-specific issue to have, so I don't see this bothering most people, but I had to mention it.
Overall, I think a lot of people will like this! Feb 16, Once rated it it was ok. When I saw this title on Netgalley I was so excited to see a novel in verse! Ever since I found Ellen Hopkins, I've been obsessed with novels in verse. I also totally loved this colors in this cover. The coral, pinks, and purples work so well together and the cute scooter on the front drew me in.
With that said, though, I was hoping for one thing, and totally got another.

I wanted so badly to like this book since novels in verse don't get the credit they deserve sometime, but I wasn't excited about this one. It took a lot for me to get through it.
First of all, the characters were very predictable. I've read so many novels about girls with dad's in the spotlight and not feeling good enough. It's fine to have that in your plot, but this one just didn't fit. Also the good girl and bad boy thing has been done before and didn't feel very fresh. Samantha's friends and little sister ended up being my favorite characters. I'm such a huge fan of novels in verse, but this one was really difficult to follow.
Was it because I was reading it on a Kindle and not a hard copy? I don't know. The formatting wasn't very helpful on the Kindle, but even the wording was difficult and it sounded like a bunch of words strung together. I get that this was a teenager talking to her friends through text and short conversations, but I just couldn't follow it. Maybe my middle school students would be able to read it and follow the craziness, but I just couldn't do it.
Which makes me sad Nov 12, J. A special thanks to the publisher for this review copy! Told in verse, this book has blunt, powerful, poetic prose.

But it's those very things that are her downfall. I really enjoyed this book, more for the realistic writing than anything else. Well, that is aside from the characters. The characters are realistic, and to the point in a good way. They're not angst-y or whiny even though they have some reasons to be just that. The writing is so relatable and fluid. I found myself breezing right through the book. All in all It was a great read that wasn't afraid to tackle gritty topics, and I found it to be done well.
With this being Lyons' first book, I have to say I'm very impressed and I can't wait to read more of her stuff. May 29, Andreea Arsene rated it it was ok Shelves: read-in , poetry.

It is a powerful and beautiful coming of age story told in stream of consciousness verse equal to Sonya Sones' books. Fans of books written in 1st person verse will not be disappointed!
I loved the narrator, her friends, her ups and downs and her struggles to grow up in spite of it all. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Sonya Sones or free form verse narrations. If you've never read a verse book before, check it out!

I think I would have liked this book better had I read it before Crank by Ellen Hopkins, but as far as a story about a good girl who dates a meth addict goes, Crank had much higher stakes and more drama.
This novel doesn't deal with the issues of addiction--Sam does drugs for weeks and then quits cold turkey and doesn't care.

I thought her bad boyfriend was going to be a different brand of bad, when reading the synopsis. Even so, it's a fast read and the story is pretty decent. Some messages in here about family and moving on from toxic pepe in your life. It's a more suitable YA read for younger audiences than Crank was, that's for sure.

Apr 05, Talon Tiny Talon rated it it was ok Shelves: 2-stars , real-world-fiction , poetry , library-books , read-in , young-adult. Trigger warning for drug use. This book was Relatable on some levels, but it mostly read a whole lot like a shorter version of Crank. Crank and Ellen Hopkins's other books were good to me when I read them years and years ago.
Now, not so much. I wouldn't be surprised if this had been written by her, except that it's shorter and not as good. In Trigger warning for drug use. In this case, it really wasn't helpful. This book was trying to do something that really couldn't be done in verse. I feel like the story would've had more of an impact if it were told in a normal way instead.
Sam is an artist and the daughter of a politician and X is a boy who works at her local coffee shop. When X takes an interest in her, Sam follows along, and the ride she ends up on are more than she really bargained for.
The characters are okay. That's really is. Sam is your classic YA, "not a good girl but not a bad girl either" type of girl, and X is that classic bad boy. The characters don't really stand out that much. The plot was really quick and really just This really has to do with the fact that the story is told in verse, like I mentioned before. It's just a story of a girl and this boy, and how he screws her over again and again. Nothing really worth while here.
In short, this book was okay. It was short and had a bittersweet ending but there really wasn't anything special to it. It's a good book for those who are just starting out reading books in verse, though I would recommend the Crank series before this. Jan 21, Millie rated it it was ok. Too many pages and not enough happening.
Quick and light. Would've liked it to be heavier and dive deeper into some of the topics it skimmed on. The use of verse meant that didn't happen.
