's review

really liked it
bookshelves: someone-needs-a-junk-punch, read-in-2015

A real and honest side of immigration and family presented in way that only Anna could provide.

Carly is definitely an interesting MC. She's struggling with so many things, that it's delightful to see her let go and be a teenager instead of a 16 year old adult. Arden is different and yet the same. He's got his own set of problems that on the outside seem petty. The two of them together are so much fun.

The plot is a bit more serious than I would have expected, but it's fantastic. It felt very realistic. Not to mention the snarky banter and delicious swoons. There is a bit of heartbreak, but I loved how it was all handled and the ending was perfect.

**Huge thanks to Macmillan and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

**Squishy hugs to the ladies at Macmillan for for sending me a physical arc**
