When Sammie’s parents split up and she is forced to move to New York City with her mom, Sammie feels like nothing will ever work out. But soon Sammie meets a quirky girl in the dog park. Sammie and Phoebe soon become great friends but Sammie’s problems are still not fixed. Her mom is constantly reading self-help books and is scared and uncertain when it comes to getting the job she wants. Sammie feels like nothing will ever be the same and continues to get madder and madder at her parents.

And then Eli, the son of her mom’s friend, is thrown into the picture. Sammie met Eli when she was little and remembers an embarrassing moment that Eli was sure not to forget, so Sammie tries to avoid Eli. But what Sammie soon finds is that she likes him.

This is a story about a 16-year old girl going through divorce, friendship and romance all in one summer. I really like this book.
