I had read "Last Call" by the same author and hoped I would like this one as well. It was okay. I wouldn't call it a MUST read but then I wouldn't say it wasn't worth reading either.

Positives:

* This book moves really fast even though it's a bit long.
* The family that she moves in with is hilarious. It reminds me of the stories about hippies.
* She really grows up and you see that there is always a second chance.

Negatives:

* She never really understands her parents point of view. It's like they don't matter.
* The decisions are laid out for her.
* It's unknown if she really learns what she is supposed to, or if it's just things that she finds interesting. If we didn't have to learn everything then I would have never learned any math.

My first book by this author - I couldn't really get into it and I thought it was totally unrealistic.
