This was a cute and quick read. The main character is extremely likeable, you are compelled to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next in her mixed up world.

Jody Rogers thought she was taking charge of her life, so why does it feel like everything is spinning out of control?
In the space of twenty-four hours, Jody has quit her dead-end job as a waitress at Dean's Ocean Galley, dumped her two-timing boyfriend (after catching him in the shower with her cousin!), and set out to jump-start her stalled twenty-something existence. Unfortunately, both jobs and men are scarce in the small seaside town of Bent Harbor, so Jody quickly finds herself single, homeless, and unemployed--just in time for her ten-year high school reunion!
Nobody seems to know what Jody should do with her life. Not her hookup-happy best friend. Not her psycho not-so-secret admirer. Not her amiable pothead brother. Not even her loving-but-unsupportive parents, who have already turned her childhood bedroom into a cozy arts-and-crafts studio. And least of all Jody, who can't understand how all her dreams have gone so wrong.
With no prospects, romantic or otherwise, on the horizon, can Jody somehow manage to turn her life around--before she goes completely out of her mind?
