I was pleasantly surprised by this books. I had just made up my mind to stay away from these new-new adult romances. I think I'm starting to get too old for the high school/first year of college/ under the age of twenty-one romances.

This story felt very mature to me!

Gemma was full of anger and resentment towards her father. She felt rejected by him because he appeared to have chosen many things in his life over her. She was forced to spend summers that included his wife and her half brother and sister every year. She could barely tolerated all of them. The final summer before she goes off to college is a learning experience and an awakening. She opens up to her half siblings, makes friends for the first time and falls in love. She can finally get over herself and let go. She said something like, "It's exhausting to hate everyone all the time." It's her defense mechanism against being hurt something I can relate to.
