While I wasn't quite sure where this book was going at first, I ended up really liking this book for the way it dealt with a few teenage issues: mental illness, abortion, friendship, eating disorders. Annabeth is shy and has always relied on her friend Noe to guide her, especially now that they're seniors and planning on going to the same college together. But they've been drifting apart lately and Annabeth is dealing with some issues of her own, which can be partially traced back to the fact that she found out her mom became pregnant with her after being raped. I love how the pregnancy/abortion in the book is dealt with (she's embarrassed about telling her mom, but not traumatized). I put this on the cusp of middle school--it does deal with some intense issues, but not in a particularly graphic way.
