"Vivid characters, a disarming storyline and gratifying ending. What more could a reader want? Everything that can go wrong in Mac's life does--her parents divorce, her sister dies, and she's arrested for something she didn't do. She has to learn how to assimilate it, learn from it, and move forward. But that won't be easy."
