This Is So Not Happening (He’s So/She’s So #3) by Kieran Scott
Release: May 1, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
My Rating: 3.5/5 stars
After their long summer apart, Ally and Jake were hoping for a drama free senior year. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like things will work out that way…again. — It turns out that Chloe is pregnant and says that Jake is the father. Hammond is pissed at his best friend, but mostly can’t believe that Ally would stay with Jake. But Ally is tired of being apart from Jake and is willing to make it work. But that is easier said than done when Jake starts blowing Ally off to go to doctor’s appointments with Chloe and Ally joins the school play and meets a new cute guy.
But as graduation approaches, things get more complicated as new secrets come out and Ally realizes maybe Jake isn’t the guy she thought he was. After everything they’ve been through can Ally and Jake get out of Orchard Hill with their relationship intact?
I never reviewed He Is So Not Worth It because, to be frank, I hated it. I started to review it a bunch of times but it started getting rant-y and I was getting annoyed reliving the book.
ON A HAPPIER NOTE: This Is So Not Happening is much better! The characters and relationships progressed and matured so much from the first book. But, the characters are still teenagers and have their moments of frustrating angst and drama. I didn’t love the pregnancy storyline that seemed to drag down every character but it didn’t end up being as horrible as I had imagined and I did shed a few tears for Chloe at a certain point.
Once again, the differing points of views between Ally and Jake is one of my favorite things about this trilogy. I know a lot of people don’t like switching POVs but I usually like seeing what another character is thinking and feeling as opposed to just the one.
Finally, I have to talk about Ally. I had forgotten how much I really loved Ally. I respected her for how she handled the difficult situation(s) she was in and was the voice of reason for the people around her as well. She’s just an awesome character! The one thing I would have liked to see more in this last book was more interaction and closure with her father.
Overall, everything came full circle and was wrapped up perfectly in the end of the He’s So/She’s So trilogy.
