The Secret of Ella and Micha will turn out to be like your best friend...one to be treasured, will provide you with fond memories, and will visit again and again!
I have not read a book by Jessica. The Secret of Ella and Micha is my first introduction to this author. Have to say that I liked what I read. Instantly fell for Ella and Micha. Probably more Micha then Ella. Only because I liked Micha's teasting/flirting of Ella. He has a good charm about him. He was borderline good/bad boy. However what I liked about Ella was her tomboyish and sarcastic way. It did not come out so much in this book as Ellas was trying hard to play the good gurl. Hopefully I will see more of this side of Ella in the next book.
It was obvious that Ella and Micha were in love with each other. Think like Joey and Dawson from Dawson's Creek but Micha is cooler. Once Ella gave into Micha watch out. They were hotter together. This book will be enjoyed by both the older teen and adults alike. Teens can relate to Ella and Micha and the adults can relate by remembering their first true love. I am glad to see that there will be two more books and that the third one will focus on Ella's friend, Lila and Micha's friend, Ethan. There was something there between them. The title of this book is a little misleading as it was not really a secret that Ella and Micha loved each other. The Secret of Ella and Micha will turn out to be like your best friend...one to be treasured, will provide you with fond memories, and will visit again and again! Extra Trivia Did you Know: Micha's nickname for his car is "The Beast," which is also what Jessica calls her car? Star Grove is similar to the town Jessica grew up in-it even has a drive-in and everything. Jessica added music as one of Micha's hobbies because she realized it would be a great way for Micha to express his love for Ella. The cas talk that goes on throughout the story was something Jessica was surrounded by growing up. The guys in her family are really into cars.
