This book has candy on the cover. Candy! And in my mind, candy equals fun and fluff. If there are two words that definitely do not come to mind when I think Sweethearts, it's fun and fluff. Incredible, amazing, gut-wrenching, and heartbreaking, yes, but never fun and fluff.
2. Crash Into Me by Albert Borris
The cover for Crash Into Me looks, to me, like a Perfect Chemistry-rip-off, just another romance. And Crash Into Me is so not a romance novel (not that I mind romance)!
The cover makes this seem like a fun, guilty-pleasure, feel-good, beach-read kind of book, which is not the case at all. Invincible Summer deals with lots of serious topics, and it's actually a very literary book.

When I'm not reading for school, I mainly read Young Adult books, especially contemporary, which is mostly what I review here. I also contribute to Feminists Talk Books (http://www.paperbacktreasures.blogspot.com).
