IMPORTANT: Starting with this review, I will no longer be doing an assessment of "moral content" in my reviews of Christian media such as this, unless it has a concern I find significant enough to mention.

Recommends it for: girls
In this book the main character is Holly and she goes to California with her dad and his family. No one wants her to go including her mom, litle sister, and her best friend andie. This book is a prety good book. Um She wants to go to california to foreget about jared who was her first crush. I think mostly any girl would enjoy this book. I read it last year and i know i enjoyed it.

Holly makes her plans and then expects everyone to fall into line with them and feels hurt when they don't.
