Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram

Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram

Summary from Goodreads:
An accident that should end in tragedy instead gives seventeen-year-old Jamie Baker a slew of uncontrollable superhuman abilities. To keep her secret safe Jamie socially exiles herself, earning the title of Rocklin High's resident ice queen. But during a supercharged encounter with star quarterback Ryan Miller she literally kisses anonymity goodbye. Now the annoyingly irresistible Ryan will stop at nothing to melt the heart of the ice queen and find out what makes her so special. Unfortunately, Ryan is not the only person on to her secret. Will Jamie learn to contain her unstable powers before being discovered by the media or turned into a government lab rat? More importantly, can she throw Ryan Miller off her trail before falling in love with him?

YA Contemporary/Sci-fi, Library Book

My Review:
I have a book on my "to read" list by Kelly Oram.  I searched for it at the library and the only book they had was this one.  I thought I would give it a try even though I knew nothing about it.

This book was ok.  There were parts I liked, parts I didn't.  I loved Ryan Miller.  What a great guy.  I really liked Jamie's parents.  I wasn't terribly fond of Jamie herself.  I felt like parts of the book dragged on, but then there were parts I really liked too.  It just wasn't a consistent "ooo, I like this" book for me.

Warnings: Rape, death, accidents, sexual innuendo

I would let my 15 year old daughter read this, but I just don't think it is a good enough book that I would recommend it to her.  I would not let my 12 year old read this book.
