Publisher's Summary

Margaret Walsh worked for six years to overcome the trauma she endured at the hands of bullies as a kid, and graduation promises the chance to start over in college and leave the past behind her for good.
What was supposed to be her last summer of fun before moving to Paris turns into a nightmare as her parents announce they're taking over management of a restaurant in the New England beach town where she spent her childhood. For them, it's an amazing possibility. For her, it means confronting memories - and people - she'd rather forget.
Margie's all grown up now, but some things never change. When Zach Robinson insists he's not the bully she remembers, it's all she can do not to laugh. Still, if she's learned anything over years, it's that everyone deserves an opportunity to be better.
Even lost causes need second chances, but with her heart on the line, asking her to bet on a long shot might take more faith than she's willing to give.

This book struck a cord with me.

The main character Margie is returning to a place where she was traumatized as a child by bullies.

Margie dealt with years of therapy to deal with her PTSD

But due to a once in a life time opportunity and out of love for her parents she returns.

The book follows Margie and Zack through out the summer as they work on growing up and moving on from the past.

good YA story. 3.5 stars

Poor Marg. this has been though a lot in her early age. And having to face the boys that have bulled her almost her whole again, is no easy task. She has to learn not to be so angry, to not let them ruin her life again. Thankfully she has good friends, a great family, and a killer job to help her get though all of this.
She has changed, But have they?
