    I'm current reading 'why chemical reactions happen' by Keeler, and I found the content accessible at first, but to be honest, I'm beginning to struggle the more I read because the content begins to touch on undergraduate level material.

    Is it possible to say I've read parts of it and found them interesting instead of saying I've read the entire book.

    God forbid the day it comes up and they ask you for your thoughts on Undergraduate material (it may never happen, but you can never be too careful)

    It's best if you say, you're familiar with it or that you've read certain aspects of it to benefit your academic enrichment, and then perhaps give examples of what areas it helped you in, this ensures the interviewer knows it was these specific sections that they can ask you on.

    Haha . The reason I'm reading this book is because it's a book recommended by my chemistry teacher, and she said I should read it over summer to challenge myself.

    So in my personal statement, as long as a mention that I've read 'certain aspects such as xyz etc' in the book, making it very clear that I've not read the entire book, then I'll be fine?

    That sounds great! As long as you've made it explicitly clear you've covered those aspects I don't see any issues.
