I really, really enjoyed reading this book and I'm surprised it's not more popular. It has a genuine, realistic protagonist and a very interesting storyline. I almost immediately engaged with Summer and I devoured this book - it's one that I found hard to put down. Summer and her sister's relationship was definitely unique as well as touching. The subplot of Summer and Gibson's relationship was also really sweet and I think that it worked well - putting more of a happier tone amongst the sad feelings from Summer's discovery of her sister's true past. The characters in this book were well developed and the writing was good. Deriso gives a good insight into a realistic family life and deals well with a family who, after years, are still coming to terms with the death of a loved one. I'd definitely recommend this book.
