Young Adult
Pages: 224

Release Date: April 6, 2010
Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

I just love her writing! It inspires me so much because she makes you really feel everything, it's like you momentarily vanish form your body into the character's skin! This was such a sweet book and such a nice topic to explore because, even though it's sort of cliche, it keeps on happening often. And I don't think it will ever stop happening. The way Scott writes about it though, is about much more than just falling for your best-friends boy. The Unwritten Rule is also about family, parents, true friends and many issues. A very short and light read but filled with numerous types of emotions.

The characters were incredibly real, I loved Sarah! The cover is beyond gorgeous, I fell in love with it from the first time I saw it, which was weird since I don't find feet appealing at all, but the sweetness and the purple background makes it irresistible to watch. Its one of those covers that when you see it in the shelf, you just have to pick it up. If you like sweet love stories, if you're a contemporary or Dessen fan, or if you've enjoyed Scott's books, you will love this one too!
