What was this book about?

Auden is on her way to college and she has never lived a normal childhood life since her parents always treated her like an adult.  After her parents got divorced she hasn’t been sleeping.  When she visits her dad, step mom and new sister in Colby over the summer, she experiences things she missed like friends, fun, truth, love and riding bikes.

What did you like about this book?

The same thing I like about all Sarah Dessen books, no matter what type of girl, or what situation she is in, she can read this book and relate to any character or moral Sarah Dessen writes about.

What did you dislike about this book?

It ended!

Would you recommend this book to someone?  If yes, who and why? If no, why not?  

Yes, any of my friends at school because they can relate to the characteres and enjoy the world and friends Sarah creates in her book.
