"A fast-paced blend of high-stakes drama and average teenage concerns (sex, appearance, friends), capped with a welcome message of hope." ~Kirkus Reviews
Madison Lukas knows her place in the world. She's not pretty, not interesting, and therefore easy to forget.
John Britton is serving his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has been praying for fifteen years to find the sister he lost in his parents' divorce. She is beautiful, talented, and makes kindness a fine art.
When John and Madison cross paths, he recognizes her at once, but Madison is certain that he's got it all wrong. Even if she is his long-lost sister, she can't possibly be the exceptional, amazing girl he thinks she is, can she?
I've read other books by this author that I very much enjoyed, but I wasn't sure about this one. But I'm glad I did; It too was worth reading. This not only deals with romance but how girls see themselves, the loyalty of friendship, staying true to yourself, and mental illness issues that people deal with in life. Most romance novels leave me feeling empty and unsatisfied; this did not.
