really liked it
Read in September, 2012

As good as, maybe better than, Restoring Harmony. Just a few months from 18 and independence, Jamie's dad, former alcoholic and currently enmeshed in a cult, kicks her out for refusing to pledge herself to his church. She's got toughness from her years of dealing with alcoholic parents, but, like most teens, lacks a lot of the skills it takes to live on her own, especially since she's keeping it a secret to avoid being sent to live with her unreliable mother. Love the LaVon character, even though he's too good to be true. The romance didn't do anything for me, and probably could have been left out, cause that's not what the story was really about.
