Calli is in her first year to adulthood. But I feel there is at least one secret to uncover. Zach may have his own interpretation as to what that is. If you can still remember your high school years this may have you thinking about how you were treated back then. Did you have an enjoyable experience? Were you miserable by how you were treated? How about a love interest?
This story may be about one thing but I keep seeing parents putting unrealistic expectations on their children. And then there are those parents that seem to shut their children out leaving them to speculate why. Was this something that brought back unhappy memories?
This is one story that may be generational. For those that are older, they may be bothered by all the drinking going on. For the younger reader, not so much. Someone older may get angry at how the adults get portrayed – too many are poor examples of how an adult should behave. For the younger reader, they might just blow it off as typical.
One thing this author is good at is getting her readers to think about what they’re reading about. She writes in a way that makes everything seem so realistic. There are friends that might be worth getting to know more about so it will be interesting to see how the author develops the series. With basketball getting ready to start up again makes this the perfect time to read this book. If you like this book then you may want to check into a tie in with one of her others.
