    Review by Jill Williamson

    Fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher has a system to deal with her with her mom's bipolar disorder and her own ADHD—until her father shows up. Her dead father. Apparently, mom told a little lie. And on the day her dad comes to meet her, mom ends up in the hospital. And now Jesse's only relative is her dad, who lives in Florida, far away from all her friends. So Jesse goes, but she isn't staying, even when she starts to like her job at the local sushi restaurant, the cute guy who works at the bike shop, and the mysterious book she "stole" from the airport.

    Loved it! And let me just say, I could relate to Jessie's randomness and mood swings. This is a really fun story about a girl who is searching. She's had to depend on herself for so long that it's hard for her to trust anyone. But her dad isn't like her mom at all. It's weird for Jesse to have an adult who cares. The writing is funny and thoughtful. The characters are fabulous, real, and struggling like the rest of us. I flew through the book and hope I'll be able to read all the books in this series. Highly recommended.

    When I saw a new teen series coming (from author Nancy Rue) I flipped! I believe I have read every good contemporary teen books there was so I'm always happy to see another one. This book did not disappoint. It starts when Jessie, who has ADHD, freaks when her father, who she believed was dead, shows up on her front door. When circumstances force her to move in with him, she tries to show her "bad" side so she can get back home. So she steals a book, which when she opens says it was meant for her to find it. This creeps her out and Jessie leaves the book untouched for a while. But when she reads it, she finds it tells the story of salvation, which she desperately wants. Add that with a little romance, a great dad who owns motorcycles, and the secrets of sushi, you get one fantastic teen read! Way to go Nancy Rue for another winner.

    Fun read, but heavy topic

    Nancy Rue has started a great new series here. It may be for young adults but not too young. This first book deals with ADHD, bipolar disorder, parental suicide and much, much more. The second book dives into dating abuse (older boyfriend beating up his younger girlfriend) and takes it all the way through the trial. Heavy issues, but very well written. Great characters and realistic scenarios. For young people in high school and college these books are very appropriate, but I think it'll be awhile before my 14 year old, homeschooled daughter will be reading them. I am a huge sushi fan and found the insight into the sushi restaurant fascinating. In the second book Nancy gives us a great insight into surfing - that was also very interesting.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was written about real situations and people. I think it will make girls really think about their relationship with God.

    I really liked this book. While written predominately for teens, the message is powerful for all ages. Through many changes in her life, Jessie finds much growth and much to love about herself and her father. Life is never easy, but respect for one another helps us see life through another's eyes.
