Publisher's Summary

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not: loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, 17-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them...until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A well written coming of age book

This is my kind of story. This is what I love in books. A coming of age story featuring young adults finding their own voice and place, and good clean love!

I listened to this book literally all day until I finished. It was contemporary YA that felt like a historical romance because of the wholesome feel to the book. I am finding a lot of NA/YA authors are overloading their books with gratuitous sex and drinking, and it was so refreshing to read a book not focusing on any of that. There was love but it was that first kiss, first touch kind of love. That passion of first love which feels like a flower blooming in spring.

When I ask for recommendations, these are the types of books I am looking for. The types of books that leave me smiling and feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. I am definitely going to get the next book because while this one didn't end of a cliff hanger, there is clearly more story to be told.

Perfect.

Such a great story for any age. Loved these characters. Didn't want the book to end. Loved George and all the chaos next door.
