Crush Control by Jennifer Jabaley

Source: Publisher
Willow has spent most of her life as her mother's sidekick in a popular Las Vegas hypnotism show. So when she and her mom move back to their sleepy southern hometown to start over, she thinks she's in for a life of quiet normalcy. Except that her new life turns out to be anything but, when she kinda sorta hypnotizes Quinton, the hottest guy on the football team, to fall madly, deeply, head over heels in love with her. But what started out as an innocent way to make her best friend, Max, jealous soon gets way out of hand, and Willow begins to wonder if the mind - and more importantly, the heart - is something you can really control.
I could relate to Willow a lot. I have never been able to tell someone that I like them, which was a major problem that Willow had. Max was a great friend to Willow and I liked his personality. Her friend Georgia was so funny and I loved the pop culture that she provided through out the book. Quiton was also a nice guy, but his later obsession with Willow freaked me out. Willow's mom Vicki was also awesome an liked that she was involved in Willow's life. Vicki and Willow had a Glimore Girls vibe to them, which worked for me. This book was adorable. I wasn't sure if this book would be good, but I felt that it had nice pacing and a cute story line. I think that it was a fairly original book, I haven't seen hypnotism is YA fiction yet. Jabaley's writing was fun and I liked the voice that she created for Willow. I recommend this book to someone looking for a cute and fun read.
