Publisher's Summary

According to sixteen-year-old Zander Osborne, nowhere is an actual place - and she's just fine there. But her parents insist that she get out of her head - and her home state - and attend Camp Padua, a summer camp for at-risk teens.
Zander does not fit in - or so she thinks. She has only one word for her fellow campers: crazy. In fact, the whole camp population exists somewhere between disaster and diagnosis. There's her cabinmate Cassie, a self-described manic-depressive-bipolar-anorexic. Grover Cleveland (yes, like the president), a cute but confrontational boy who expects to be schizophrenic someday, odds being what they are. And Bek, a charmingly confounding pathological liar.
But amid group "share-apy" sessions and forbidden late-night outings, unlikely friendships form, and as the Michigan summer heats up, the four teens begin to reveal their tragic secrets. Zander finds herself inextricably drawn to Grover's earnest charms, and she begins to wonder if she could be happy. But first she must come completely unraveled to have any hope of putting herself back together again.

I recommend this book.

An easy-to-relate-to group of troubled teens try to figure out who they are and what they want from family, life, friendships, and each other at a summer camp for at-risk teens.

The narration is great, the characters well developed, and the subject matter is deep, while still being funny, raw, and honest.

I highly recommend.

Good teenager read

I found this book to be wonderfully written and the storyline was good from the start. The character development wasn't drawn out and boring as so many are. Even though I am in my forties, I still enjoyed the story. It isn't the best ever, but I thought it to be worth the read. I think young adults and teens will really enjoy this.
