Overall the plot of the story was good but I just felt the book deserved a better narrator. The narrator Kate Metroka tried but her voice was just too young for me. I realize the main character is only 18 but Kate sounded as if she was 13 years old. It wasn't horrible enough that I couldn't finish the book, it just annoyed me at the more "mature" parts in the book. Regardless, the story kept my interest. Its about a girl whose turned to drugs, sex, and a black wardrobe due to neglect from her only parent. Her mother who cares less for her gives an ultimatum that if she wants to go to a fancy art school than she needs to prove herself over the summer when she is sent to a cowboy ranch. You realize the mother most likely just wanted her out of her hair and probably had no intentions of letting her go either way.
The summer ends up being a great thing because the ranch is run by a loving family who show her what its like to have people who care and understand. She falls in love with the son. He helps her start to see that she isn't worthless. There is a lot more twists & turns to the story. So, if you can get past the young narrator than this sweet love story is worth it.

A young woman seeking redemption, a young man stuck in the only home he's ever known. They come together in an opposites attract moment, and thier story is fun and sweet. Secondary characters add to the story. Unfortunately, the narrator detracts from it. She's a little too high with a nasally, childish voice. I'll be avoiding her in future audiobooks.

This is an alright book. The story is ok, it's performed well, but it is very difficult to get any strong emotions about it mainly because the book is just that...ok. It provokes no great emotions. It's a bit like beige. Easyreading, nothing earth shattering. My main problem with the book is that the main characters are supposed to be 18 years old, but they appear much much younger, so this book is probably appropriate for 14 - 18 year olds but unlike other young adult novels I doubt it will be enjoyed by many readers actually over the age of 18. This is one of those actually true young adult novels for young/teenage adults.
