High school drama? Yup. This book IS high school drama. It really took me back to the day. Emme is young and it shows in her peer relationships. In her family, however, she shows some remarkable maturity. The concern and care she demonstrates for her struggling grandfather and her sick grandmother are what completely endeared me to Emme. I am ashamed to say that I wasn't nearly so intuitive or kind when I was her age and dealt with a grandfather living in my home. It's something I regret and often wish I could go back and redo that time with him. Emme is everything I wish I had been.
This book is heavy on dialogue. I was a bit surprised at how much there really was in comparison to the other books I was reading at the time. It will probably work well with the target age group though. Young adult, on the young side of that.
Content: some kissing, mention of "cheating" in a relationship, death
