Whoa! I just finished All I Never Wanted by debut author Ana Huang, and that's the first thought that came to my mind after completing the last page. This fun read follows the story of protagonist Maya Lindberg. A young woman who's comfortable being a wallflower, a person who doesn't really want to make waves, but is looking forward to the day that she can graduate from Valesca Academy and start making her way in the real world. All that changes one day when she's brought to the attention of The Scions, the four richest, most popular and most desirable guys at the Academy, and before she knows what's happened, she becomes the fake girlfriend of one, the focus of one's desire to set her up, protected by a third, and the roommate of the fourth. In a scenario that would have most girls in her class swooning, Maya isn't sure what to do, or how to act. But when she realizes she just might not be acting any more, and all she never wanted might have changed into something she wants more than she ever expected, well, that's when the story really begins.

Author Ana Huang's debut novel is a really amazing piece of work. Well-written and with a fun and engaging story line, this book is one that any lover of young adult fiction or just a good story would truly enjoy. It's hard to believe that this is Ms. Huang's first novel, and I would certainly encourage this very promising novelist to continue in this line of work. I, for one, will watch for her next work with great anticipation.
