** spoiler alert ** I thought that this was going to be a fun book about a surfer chick.


No. Medina does surf, and so does her twin brother. However, that's the end of the fun stuff:
Their mother is manipulative. She eats all the time without regard to her health or her husband's wishes. She hates Medina.
Their father cheats on the wife (a lot, in fact).
Medina's twin brother Jim is mixed in with drugs.
Medina is sleeping with random guys and doing weed.
Jim is setting things on fire for fun.
Jim eventually kills himself.
The mother dies of a heart attack.

Sounds fun, right? Sigh.
