What I've read of this book so far reminds me of Savvy by Ingrid Law, a book that I really enjoyed.I look forward to finishing this book and seeing if that resemblance remains.

They will record their interactions with the opposite sex in a notebook and give each other dating hints. As they go to increasingly great lengths to catch their crushes, the information in the notebook becomes more sensitive and their relationships with other people become more strained.
I don't think anyone could read that description and not predict disaster. It's a rather predictable plot built on a somewhat shaky foundation. Definitely not my favorite book this week.
