I didn't enjoy this book as much as others by Sarah Dessen. The plot was slow and I found Colie's attitude annoying. ( )

I absolutely loved this book. It accurately depicts how teenage years can be. Adding on the fact that she is in a town she doesn't remember with people who don't know who she is and she has issues with her body. You've got a recipe for disaster. But Sarah Dessen helps her navigate it beautifully. ( )
