This Young Adult novel is about a girl chasing her dreams. Along the way she has to figure out family dynamics and her first foray into more adult relationships, friendships that may have the potential to become something more.

The characters are interesting but my feelings about them waffled through the book. I didn't connect as well as I hoped. Gin has just turned eighteen and comes from a family with very strict religious beliefs. Her Grandmother is quite the opposite. Grandma is free-spirited
Weird and Wonderful is a cute, quick, Young Adult coming of age story about love, loss, family and sugar gliders.

Gin is a dreamer. She wants to escape from her unusual family and chase her Anime dreams. With such big dreams she has to learn to balance her expectations without compromising her goals. To say Gin's family is unorthodox is a bit of an understatement but I liked her quirky family, some more so than others.

Gin discovers that people are not always what they seem, that having different

Cece Barlow writes books for young adults and the young at heart. She's a dash of fun, mixed in with some smart cookie and a splash of capable.

She started her first fan fiction group in junior high and never stopped writing. Today, she writes about girls with lofty dreams and about the absolute craziness of falling in love.

When Cece's not writing, she curls up with a book, heads to a popcorn blo
