Everything changes so fast that Ruby finds herself attached to her old life and doest want to start a new one. So, definitely a page-turner. I liked the story well enough and the ending was sweet. This is how it continues, basically with this adorable guy Dexter pursuing her, and with her reluctantly giving in.

She became involved with a year-old when she was 15 but cut all contact with him shortly after. She has admitted in an interview that "for many years afterward, I took total blame for everything that happened between me and T. After all, I was a bad kid. I did drugs, I lied to my mom. You should have known better. But maybe he should have. The answer was always a flat, immediate no. They were kids. I was an adult. End of story.
She later went on to quit her job as a waitress after the publication of her first book, That Summer , which was published in Dessen and Gay subsequently apologized for their role in the harassment. During the interview, Gragert asked Dessen about the style she uses in some of her books, otherwise known as "effortless perfection". Dessen describes this term as the young girls in her books being able to have friends, look good, be a good student and have your life together and make it look easy.
At the start of the book, the reader is supposed to relate with the main characters and throughout their changes in the book, the reader should see that it is okay to not have everything together and not be perfect.
Gragert asked Dessen about her anxiety coping mechanisms because writing tends to cause an author to be anxious. The moral of the story is to help influence the audience come to terms with their past, accept the present and look forward to the future. In the beginning of the book, she is afraid of taking chances because she is unsure of the outcome. Throughout the book she learns that sometimes you have to leap to take a risk, and she enjoys the rush that comes from the leaping.
It takes her perception of the way her peers live their lives to understand that she was shutting herself out from the world and she wants to start living for her father. After a misunderstanding between Annabel and her best friend, she loses everything and has to start the new high school year alone. This is when she meets Owen who helps her out of her comfort zone and reveal her true self.
She forms a new bond with her baby half sister and takes her on many midnight walks where she learns that there is a whole other world out there when the rest of the world is sleeping. She has to decide if she should fully solve her problems or just take a shortcut. He tries to convince her that she needs to leave Colby and move to where she fits in, but if she already has perfect, why would she want more?
