First, Bobby over at Book Wenches gave it a 4.5 (out of 5) rating and had this to say:
Linda Kage’s novel The Stillburrow Crush is a young adult romance with a little something extra added. Although it revolves around the plot device of the nerdy girl winning the high school star athlete, it also addresses a number of deeper social issues. This story looks at teen pregnancy, small town social order, teenage peer pressure, and how one’s own perceptions or misperceptions can affect their life. I found this to be a quick and very enjoyable read that satisfied my craving for a sweet romance while giving me a story with a satisfying plot.
Lauren of Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf gave it an A- and said:
I've been under a lot of stress lately, mostly with school. So when I sat down with The Stillburrow Crush a couple of days ago, I was hoping it would push away my stressors for a bit by being a funny and cute romance type book. Luckily enough, The Stillburrow Crush completely succeed and went beyond in doing that!

I fell in love with the characters in The Stillburrow Crush. Carrie is a very down to Earth teenager who lives in the shadow of some brighter stars in her little town. Luke, who initially seems like he would be a jerk, quickly became one of my favorite characters. The reader gets peeks early on of a softer side of him. The lives of the characters was written in a way that I could see them vividly.
