The theme of this novel is Family and the many definitions that go along with it. Ruby is forced into a new life... new family, new friends. In this new life she is building new relationships as well as seeing the relationships in her old life more clearly. She has never been able to count on anyone. Now she needs to open herself up and begin to trust.

Dessen does a wonderful job with this novel. The reader is able to relate to the different transitions that Ruby goes through. Even though I wouldn't have handled the situations the way Ruby does, I was able to see why she did what she did and understand it.

I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves books about family and building relationships. This is not a romance novel. Ruby does have a love interest, but it is not the focal point in the story.

Annabel (Just Listen)
Rogerson (Dreamland)
Kristy and Bert (The Truth About Forever)
