I think she's a great match for Sarah Dessen fans who are ready for something a little more mature. I do have a beef with this cover - where's the cupcakes? Ice skates? I don't think it matches at all. ( )

This was a good teen read. It is the story of a young girl who faces the challenges of being the oldest child during a time of turmoil in her family. She seems older than her years in many ways, and like an ordinary teen in other ways; often she seems the adult in the family, while her mother remains able to guilt her into certain actions. The characters are not entirely fully rounded or enjoyable, but I found the story line easy enough to follow, and the language and romantic scenes are "safe" enough for middle teen readers.

I did not enjoy this book as much as Fixing Delilah, but it was enjoyable just the same. I would feel comfortable adding this to my middle school collection. ( )

An okay read about a teen who is very unsure about what she wants/feels...which many can relate to! (certainly I can...)

Hudson has spent the last couple of years hiding out in her mother's diner, baking amazing cupcakes and trying not to think about the ice-skating career she walked away from and the dad that walked away from her, her younger brother, and their mom. But when she meets a new hockey boy, Josh, who asks if she'd be willing to help him improve her skating, she begins to think more about what *she* wants, instead of what her parents want for her. ( )
