Overview

Nesta is devastated. She has to wear braces. She thinks that no boy will ever look at her again without thinking of the killer shark in Jaws. And practicing a smile that doesn't show her teeth isn't helping. There's only one option: to become a recluse.

Lucy, Izzie, and T. J. try to help Nesta understand that her looks haven't changed, but Nesta's not convinced. Things change, however, when she meets Luke, who not only restores her confidence in her ability to attract boys, but also introduces her to a whole new side of her personality.

I love Cathy Hopkins books! She is my favorite author and I can't wait to get the rest of the series. Mates, Dates, and Sequin Smiles was the first book of hers that i read and now I'm hook. I have braces like Nesta does and I wish I would have read this book before getting them. Reading this book gives me a positive side to wearing metal in your mouth. Thank You Cathy Hopkins and keep up the great work.

This book kept me on my toes the whole time i was thinking about how it would end the whole time i read it, i couldn't put it down. Nesta like me, just got braces which made me want to read it more. Cathy Hopkins did an amazing on this book and the rest of the Mates,Dates, series they are great. All young girls should read these because they can give you a boost of confidence when you think of how the characters act.

This is one of the best mates, dates books. i have read the whole series and in this book you can see the real Nesta. All those pretty girls who are really insecure underneath are revealed. Luke is charming and sweet, the ideal boyfriend and helps Nesta to discover who she really is.

I really liked this book!! I¿ve read the entire Mates, Dates series, and this one was really good! The only thing I didn¿t like was how much Nesta is embarressed when she got braces. I loved Luke because he opened up Nesta¿s eyes to how braces are not that bad!! He sweet, and perfect for her! It¿s a good, funny, and light-hearted book!

This is my favorite Mates, Dates book. Luke seems so great & perfect for Nesta!! These books are a light, fun read. I recommend them for any girl who loves to laugh.

I thought this book was good. Luke sounded like the ideal guy. The guy who sees past everything and doesn't care if you have braces or anything. I'm glad that the families ended up friends again. It was a very good book. I'll be buying more of these Mates, Dates, books.
