What if your father was the slightly kinder, gentler, and less profane version of Gordon Ramsey? What if your mom left an unhappy marriage and became the pampered wife of a Big-10 basketball coach?

Sounds like a promising read! I’ve been meaning to check out some Sarah Dessen books, as I know you are a big fan.

I’ve read this book many times already, and my mom is buying it for me for Christmas. I can’t wait to read it again. On my “favorite books” list!
It’s a must-read!
