She's So Money - Cherry Cheva

Summary: When Maya's parents leave their Thai restaurant in the kids' hands for a weekend, they think they can trust their overachieving, responsible daughter. But she and her brother decide not to clean up after a long night -- the night before a surprise health inspector visit. Now, Maya's got to figure out a way to pay back $10,000 without her parents finding out. So she pairs up with a rich bad boy to start doing homework for money. Soon, the demand gets so great that Maya has to recruit her other smart friends into the ring, which increases the danger of being found out.

Review: I'm pretty much guaranteed to like a book if it has some romance going on and is halfway decent, but this book actually had that and was very humorous. Camden is this bad boy slacker and everything comes easy to him and Maya is this good girl that does her homework and has to work. When Maya ends up stuck with Camden it turns into a love-hate relationship, which is in my opinion the best kind. That's where things get really interesting and really fun. I love the stress that Cheva puts on Maya and then in turn on her relationship with Camden, which leads her to become more like Camden. If this doesn't really explain how much I liked this book, well then let's put it this way. Some parts were so funny that I was reading them aloud across the kitchen to my mom during dinner. After the third time I read said certain parts out loud she finally decided to stop telling me to shut up and listened. She ended up liking them too!
