This is a very cute book that is also a movie. I believe the book was written first but don't go by me. If you have not seen the movie yet read the book first. It is about a troubled teen who all girls can relate to and her moms horrible dating habbits. Every time a relationship went south the family moved.

I loved this book. It takes place modern day so you probably wont dred reading it and it wont bore you. They would istant message each other which we do alot. They also were sneaking around behind each other's backs so it's very ummmmmmmm intresting. I learned that you can't force people to like each other and you have to let the chips fall where they may even if you have the perfect plan
