Hannah has the bad luck of having a Hugh Hefner type of dad who's never around and who she hasn't talked to for years. Her mother lives in the past walking around in lingerie talking to her fans over the internet. Meanwhile Hannah is trying to get her crush to notice her while simultaneously trying to figure out her sudden feelings for another boy. Hannah is always living in the shadows of her life. She doesn't really have any ambition that I can place. She's just there. She's working with customer's over the phone which I'm sure can be really annoying. Having to work at any capacity for a fast food place can't be fun. Luckily she has two guys to entertain her. Josh, her crush, starts giving her some attention. Getting her some gifts. He looks down on some things that Finn and her do but Hannah is oblivious to his flaws and the obvious attraction she has to Finn. Finn's a bit goofy but he's a sweetheart. It's like he knows sometimes what she needs without her having to say anything. I loved the connection they had. Finn alone was such a great guy who's real and really cares about Hannah. This is another one of those cases where the main character can't see what's right in front of her. When will these girls learn?
So eventually she gets called in by her father. She needs to make the decision whether she wants to go and see him once again. He's not much of a father but he is the father she's stuck with. Maybe he could change. I found it kind of funny the comparison between him and Hugh Hefner. He even had scrapbooks. There was points where I felt sorry for him and others where I sided with Hannah. I originally read this book because the cover was so like How Not to be Popular and I wanted to compare it. I now realize that wouldn't be fair because they are both so different. Something, Maybe has it's own good qualities. I liked it but not nearly as much as I would have hoped. The redeeming quality was what happened with Hannah in the end, love wise and family wise. It was overall a nice story.
