Margo, Jane's older sister, is the third narrator. She's bisexual, and I honestly couldn't see the point of her POV. She didn't really add anything to the story, and it felt like her struggle to come out was just there for added drama, and served no real purpose.
Character relationships were pretty spot-on, though. We have a nicely paced romance between Jane and Teo, which is basically represented by this math equation:
Awkward + Awkward = Adorableness!
The family relationships were wonderful as well, which is not something that's always a big deal in YA. It was nice seeing how close Jane and Margo were, and the same goes for Teo and his three younger brothers.
Teo also had an awesome friendship with his best friend Ravi. Their relationship showed how, no matter how asshole-y your best friend can be, you'll still stick by them... After you tell them that they're an asshole. (Although I kind of hated Ravi as a character. He was just too quirky and unnatural for my liking.)
Overall, I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a quick, cute contemporary read! It may not be the perfect book, but it'll be enough to bring smiles to your faces on a rainy day.
