Summary

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades - the perfect daughter. And then… Surprise number one: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident. Surprise number two: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters - her new guardians. Surprise number three: The Walters have 12 sons. (Well, 11, but Parker acts like a boy anyway.) Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy -loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring - no matter what they say - but proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Just so shallow

I was in the mood for something somewhat innocent, Young adult-ish. The premise of this book seemed interesting. However, what could have been a really interesting idea was never flushed out. The characters were all extremely shallow. Most notably, Jackie, the protagonist. She just lost her entire family in a car crash at the start of the book and it really delved no deeper into those feelings of grief or remorse. Her guardian, the woman who is supposed to be taking care of her in this horrible, tragic time of her life, does absolutely nothing to protect her from the cruelty she endures at the hands of the people living in her home. There’s absolutely no significant interaction between this adult mother and a 16-year-old girl. Every interaction was just too shallow. The entire story was completely vapid. The love triangle was absurd. Just a fail all around. I like fan fiction and this reads like one of the worst ones I’ve ever read.

A Great Read

I enjoyed reading this book it has love and loss and it's about a girl trying to find herself now that she has been displaced from everything she once knew. However, I do think the narrating voices could have been a little more distinguished and not so flat with little emotion...and as for the story while it was a really good story, I felt like there was a lot that occurred in just 18 chapters....very busy...
