Read in June, 2006

Macy is in the summer before her senior year of high school. Her boyfriend is away at Brain Camp, a camp for smart kids all summer and she is about to endure the first extended time they have been apart since they got together right after her father died about a year and a half prior. Her boyfriend is a perfectionist and expects her to be as well. Macy can't even remember what life was like before everything happened, she knows no other way. She takes over her boyfriends dull job at the library information desk while he is away, but the caters madness at a party her real estate mother throws one night sparks an interest and she ends up working for them and enjoys the madness that was missing from her life before her dad died. She crushes on and becomes friends with one of the other caters, Wes, whose aunt owns the business. Macy and Wes play a game all summer when they find themselves alone called Truth (as in Truth or Dare) and learn a lot about each other and of course, end up together in the end when Macy realizes that she likes the madness, misses the madness of life. The book moved so slow which made the 350 pages go by even slower, even though it wasn't too long. It sure felt like it.
