Rachel Botchan realizes every opportunity to capture the ironic, dramatic voice that has drawn fans to Sarah Dessen ever since her first book. This book's heroine, Auden, is a studious girl who's acted like an adult for most of her 17 years. She embraces the attitudes of her haughty academic mother, including a horror of her "extraneous, overblown, exuberant" stepmother. All that changes when Auden spends the summer between senior year and college in a beach town, living with her father, stepmother, and newborn stepsister. Auden makes friends with a clique of girls, a mysterious young man, and, most importantly, her real self. Botchan perfectly renders the teenage dialogue and emotionally charged situations upon which Dessen has built her reputation. S.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
