bookshelves: coming-of-age, family, relationships, realistic-contemporary, romance

It wasn't so much the story that I loved (although the story was just fine--) but the words that Kephart used to tell it that earned this book the 4 star rating (maybe 4.5? 5??) I gave it. This is wonderful writing--the story is as much about poetry--and the art of writing--as it is about high school relationships and the complexity of family dynamics and, of course, love. The story moves forward slowly--and ends with a less clear resolution than Sarah Dessen's books--but readers who like the romance and general wholesomeness of Dessen's stories and are willing a to linger over the small details of life (and writing) will be immensely satisfied with Beth Kephart's Undercover.
