Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains vandalism in the name of art, art in the name of love, and love for a boy too charming to ever hate.
Sloane Whitaker isn’t happy about moving to Texas. She loves living in New York City, can’t imagine starting over her senior year somewhere else, and misses her friends and family something fierce. Worst of all, it's all her fault. If she wants to earn her way back to the Big Apple, she has to prove she can still be the perfect daughter.
Which means no vandalism art, no trouble at school, and absolutely no Tru Dorsey, her serial screw-up, incredibly hot neighbor, who loves nothing more than pushing her buttons.
But from the moment he vaults onto the roof outside her bedroom, there is something about the irresistibly charming bad boy that makes her want to break every rule. Suddenly it's not the ten things she hates about Tru that are at the top of her list. It's the ten reasons she’s willing to risk her future to be with him.
"This book was awesome and I really enjoyed it. I had never read any other books by this author before, but I’m definitely going to have to change that now." - Over the Bookshelf

There is absolutely nothing that I hate about Tru Dorsey. I broke some reader code that I’ve instilled in myself when I read this series out of order, completely skipping over book one. I’m so glad that I went back to the beginning of the seri... ...more
Another great cute novel from Crush.
This one started off reminding me heavily of Ten Reasons Why I Hate You- which I adored btw- and then became something quite different. Much quirkier and more unique than I expected
I could easily give you ten things I love about Tru. I found Sloan quite annoyi... ...more
A totally enjoyable read. I literally found myself liking the two main characters and felt that these were two people who are trying to deal with what life has thrown at them. Both Sloane and Tru are two teenagers who have some pretty serious things to contend with. Sloane and Tru know that nothi... ...more
I'm rapidly growing extremely fond of the Entangled Teen's Crush line. This is a line of pure young adult, contemporary romance. Whenever i'm in the mood for some straight romance that is cute (not always necessarily light-hearted) but standalone, I'm always excited to get my hands on one of thes... ...more

My Thoughts: I wasn’t sure what I was really getting into as I started this one. I remember requesting it originally and knowing it sounded good but I randomly decided to read it one night on my kindle.
And I thought it was a cute story! We are introduced to Sloane who has gotten into some trouble... ...more
I finished this book in one sitting and I absolutely loved it!
right from the beginning I was so intrigued by our main character Sloane Whitaker, a senior in high school, an artist and a risk taker.
She is sent to Austin in Texas from New York City after an incident and her parents don't exactly t... ...more

Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru is an absolutely delightful contemporary young adult novel. Although it has a super sweet romance, it is the subtle life lessons that Tera Lynn Childs incorporates into the storyline that make it such an exceptional read. This first installment in the Cr... ...more
I had a rather weird reaction to this book. One that I was not expecting at all. While I was reading it I kept wanting to create art. I just wanted to pull out a pencil and draw. I wanted to take paint and splatter it against a canvas. I just wanted to CREATE something. So be warned. This could v... ...more
Review originally posted on my Blog, Over The Bookshelf
Sloane has a pretty good life. She goes to a prestigious art school in New York, her best friends, and her freedom. Then she makes a stupid decision in the name of art, and now she has to deal with the consequences. Her mother moves her to Te... ...more
NetGalley. Thanks for the copy.
Contrary to what the title implies (and suggests), the book has nothing to do with Ten Things I Hate About You. Ten Things I Hate About You, which is an excellent and awesome movie from the last century I will proudly cherish for all of my days, is a little bit mor... ...more
OK, I’ve left my teenage years well behind now but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a great teen novel - and this is one such story. With well written characters, plenty of teenage angst, a mystery to solve and relationships to explore this is a story full of twists, turns and incidents to keep th... ...more
By "I'll review this when I get home from work", I clearly mean "Write the review at work and post it when I get home". (I HAD A LOT OF DOWN TIME TODAY, OKAY?! DON'T JUDGE ME!!! Lol.)
I love Tera's books and will be the first person to admit that I'm a huge sucker for cheesy YA romance novels and... ...more
Really enjoyed this cute read told mostly from the perspective of Sloane Whitaker, a New Yorker through and through, who is forced to move to Texas with her mom after getting into trouble. She misses her friends, her brother, and hates the idea of being forced to start over during senior year and... ...more
I was provided a free advanced copy from the publisher and author for a honest review. My thoughts and feelings were not swayed by any outside influence.
Actual Rating 3.5

Sloane's doing her best to stay on the straight and narrow- she's been forced by her parents to move with her mom to Austin, after The Incident. She's doesn't want to be in TX at all, and she'll do whatever she needs to do to get back home to NYC to finish out her senior year at her old school.
There is absolutely nothing that I hate about Tru Dorsey. I broke some reader code that I’ve instilled in myself when I read this series out of order, completely skipping over book one. I’m so glad that I went back to the beginning of the series and met Tru and Sloane. I knew who they were becaus... ...more
A wonderful YA read that had me from the first page. Sloane and Tru were great characters, both with personality and charm that captivated me. A very well written book that was truly a fun read!
Sloane Whitaker can't believe her parents have made her leave NYC and live in Austin for her senior yea... ...more
Right from when we meet Tru I fell in love with him, “front doors are so pedestrian,” he says as he plops down next to me." I agree with Tru on the oatmeal raisin cookie thing, “cookies are supposed to be unhealthy.” He makes a grand sweeping gesture. “That’s practically like eating a bran muffin... ...more
I LOVED this book so hard! Sloane and Tru are awesome together, and I can't wait to read the rest of their journey, plus meet the other characters from the series. This book combined serious issues, sweet romance, a little bit of mystery, and a whole bunch of creativity into a "can't put down" st... ...more
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru is adorable. Sloane is anything but your typical Entangled Teen Crush character. She is a rebel and a troublemaker who is suffering the consequences of one bad choice-a choice that cost her, her f... ...more
I got an ARC from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.
The protag, Sloane is an art student who had to move from New York to the last place she wanted to be: Texas. She had no interest in the people there, the weather, the traffic or the boy next door who seemed like the troublemaker... ...more
