I love this author's style of writing and what a great story. This is the first in a series of 3. Can't wait to read the others.

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.

A young girl rebels against her family and starts to work for an unconventional family. The mother is a type of Aunt Mame and the son is gay. She finds acceptance and learns to love herself and accept her own family as well as to accomplish her school work. Funny and sad all at once.

Am reading this now, and enjoying it -- BUT: the errors on simple things like garden flowers and cooking are driving me nuts! Hyacinths bloom before lilacs! Peony bushes average 3' x 3' x 3' and don't grow in window boxes! Paella is not a Mexican dish. Ludicrous errors like this throughout the entire novel, and for that reason I'll nvr read this author again.

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

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.
