I loved it! it was a very refreshing story about problems teens have today.
Cute, predictable--those are the words I would use to describe this book. I didn't hate it, I didn't love it. It was all right; a bit above average, but not quite 3.5 stars.

I am currently working on two other novels --- one about a pretty, popular girl who suddenly finds herself dealing with the shame of her mother's suicide and the other an adult fiction work that I am collaborating with my friend, Greg Dixon (with whom I worked on Cut Out for Love).
