I really enjoyed this book. I loved Macy's character. I really sympathized with her and understood her actions. I also liked Kristy's character and I'm glad that Macy had such a good friend, who stood up for her and gave her advice and was there for her. I disliked Macy's mother. Macy's mom was never there for Macy and Macy felt like she could never talk to her. I'm glad that Caroline (Macy's sister) finally said something to the mom towards the end. Overall, this was a really sweet coming of age story and I really recommend it.
