This was the first book I ever read by Sarah Dessen and honestly it's still one of my favorites by her. It's easy to relate with the main character and to fall in love with the story and how she finds herself. ( )

Ahhh--a high school angst book without the bullies and nasty "let's stuff them in a locker" routine or "who is sleeping with who". Considering it is a preppy high school I find that hard to believe, but it was a breath of fresh air.
And the gal needs a break from the freako Mom who abandoned her so that she was living on her own for 2 months before anyone noticed. She moves in with an older sister who had distanced herself from the family and had made a sucess of her life with a bazillionaire husband who invented a facebook type ap. Once you get past all the snarkiness of her (and she does realize her life isn't as good as she had thought on her own) it is a pretty good read about changing your life without someone changing it for you.
