Readers know what to expect from Dessen's books. This does not mean they are formulaic (although she does use similar elements in her stories). The teen characters are real and realistic, and the plots deal with relevant teen issues. I enjoyed McLean's self discovery in this one, and I also enjoyed the basketball references. The idea of reinventing oneself with just a name change is one that many of us have entertained, and this book shows the effects of divorce on older teens. Splashes of humor and cuteness also make the book readable. Parents should read this book with their teens and discuss the issues/topics the book explores.
