Editor reviews

Just when Lucy decides she wants to go out with Tony, he gets a new girlfriend. Chagrined, she decides that a spa weekend with Izzie will soothe her ruffled feelings. It seems like a lucky star is finally shining on her when she meets Daniel, who is perfect in every way. But it soon starts to feel like he's taking over her life. Is it possible that someone can love you too much? Narrator Shirley Barthelmie modulates her even-toned narration to create expressive voices for the teen characters in this bouncy, fast-paced story, and she effortlessly recreates their wild shifts in mood and teen theatrics with great sincerity.

Lucy seems to be out on a limb. Everybody has a boyfriend except her, and since she put Tony on the back burner, he's found someone else. Then on a spa weekend with Izzie, she meets someone who seems just right for her. And he feels the same way about her. But after a while, Lucy starts to feel smothered. Can someone love you too much? Maybe the life of a singleton isn't so bad after all!
