I liked this book a lot, but I didn't absolutely love it. It's a character-driven story that's all about the journey. The characters are interesting and sympathetic. I really liked the sibling relationship. I would certainly recommend it to teens.

I think what kept me from completely loving it was Kendra's back-and-forth about understanding herself and her brother. Periodically, she has a revelation about one of them, but then seems to revert back to previous thinking. Then comes another revelation, and so forth. Perhaps this is realistic, but I found myself feeling a bit impatient.

(Note: I received a free advance reading copy of this book from the publisher at an American Library Association Annual Conference. I was not required to write a positive review. Thank you, Little, Brown!)
