I like Kassidy Milton. There, I said it. She’s funny, beautiful—even though she doesn’t know it—and my favorite kind of weird. But I can’t tell if she’s into me or just trying to get close to me for a chance with my famous twin brother instead. I mean, it has to be me. I am the better-looking one.

But Kassidy has some demons, and she’s not good at letting people in. That happens when you’ve been hurt by someone close to you. I can relate. Trust is a funny thing; it’s hard to gain but easy to lose. I might just learn that the hard way.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book includes a snarky heroine, a swoon-worthy hero, crazy best friends, your favorite music, and lots of feels.

My Thoughts

When a book starts out with the characters going to a concert, then it is my kind of book.
I love the cover and the title of I'M NOT WITH THE BAND. Both of those things attracted me to this book and played a huge part in my desire to read it.

Even though the book isn't about the guy in the boy band,  there is a love of music and some silly attempts at rap to woo the girl.

What I liked:
  • I like that I'M NOT IN THE BAND is a short quick read. Sometimes that is exactly what you need.
  • I liked the hashtags and the Facebook status updates and the texts. There were a fun way to share the story and catch up with the characters.
  • The storyline of being accepted for who we are and not who we know and who are our best friends. Kassidy and Archer need authentic friendships.
  • When their friends give them advice. It's as though Kassidy and Archer can't see what's in front of them and they get in their own way.  
  • All of the brotherly banter
Favorite Quote:

 "I'm not the lead singer of the biggest boy band in the country. Social media's all I have. Don't take this from me." - Just some of Archer's wit. And YES! He posts everything going on in his life.

I'M NOT IN THE BAND by Amber Garza is sweet and sensitive and full of funny wit. It's another great addition to Entangled Crush.
