Recommend: Yes
Convince us to read the book: This book is a great summer read, it shows how much you can be true to yourself, no matter what background you have, but still grow as a person during a short amount of time.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: All of the characters! They all sounded so real, I could imagine all of them, compared to most books, this one went in depth with all the characters and really helpedmake the book unique.
Did the cover reflect the content: The cover did tempt me to pick up the cover- it did have to do with the contents of the book and everything , but it made the book seem like one of those books about girls who just whine about everything. Auden would never wear pink OR a dress- and never the two combined. I know this was supposed to be a whole finding the new Auden, but I don't think she would change her looks that much over one summer. But other than tiny little details, the cover was good.Age Range 3: 14-15, 16-17
