really liked it
bookshelves: realistic, romance, teen-books

Sisters Rosie and Skate each deal with their father's alcoholism in different ways. Rosie tries to be the responsible daughter, attending a support group for teens with alcoholic parents. Skate is angry and rebellious and can't be bothered with the difficult issues she and her sister are facing--even when they smack her in the face. Mixed in is a bit of romance and a lot of life lessons.

It was a few chapters before I really "got into" this book, but the plot moved quickly once I did.

Highly recommended.
