I found this book to be a quick, fun, albeit somewhat forgettable read. I was approximately half way into it before remembering that I had read it before.

The plot moved quickly with events moving along at a brisk pace. There were times I wished for more detail and times I wished for less. Certain events that transpired early on in the book were left untouched until the end. I felt that the step father needed more character development. I couldn't become invested in his character because I didn't know much about him.

I found also one particular thing that was continually jarring to me. The main protagonist used the phrase "tummy" every time she referred to her stomach. This made the narrator seem juvenile and immature in her development.

Over all, this book would be good for a light pool or beach side read.
