Sarah Dessen is back and doing what she does best--writing sweet little romances about girls who need to find themselves. In this case it's Mclean, a girl who chooses a new identity with every move her dad makes. She doesn't think she wants to settle down, but being on the constant move with her chef dad and constantly fighting her mom is wearing her down. Now in Lakeview, Mclean has to be herself and she finds herself making friends she wants to keep. And, of course, a cute, smart boy.

I love how Mclean's parents' divorce is portrayed in this novel. Things aren't pretty (just like in real life), but both parents love their daughter. It's nice to see that one parent isn't a complete loser. Both parents share control when Mclean has a breakdown, which is just the way it should be.
