Professional reviews

"Rachel Botchan realizes every opportunity to capture the ironic, dramatic voice that has drawn fans to Sarah Dessen ever since her first book. This book's heroine, Auden, is a studious girl who's acted like an adult for most of her 17 years. She embraces the attitudes of her haughty academic mother, including a horror of her "extraneous, overblown, exuberant" stepmother. All that changes when Auden spends the summer between senior year and college in a beach town, living with her father, stepmother, and newborn stepsister. Auden makes friends with a clique of girls, a mysterious young man, and, most importantly, her real self. Botchan perfectly renders the teenage dialogue and emotionally charged situations upon which Dessen has built her reputation. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
