Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of my fav SD books. The heroine, Colie, is so irresistible. She's vulnerable but strong (wayyyyy down deep, but ultimately), sensitive to others, but independent, and just generally someone who deserves better than what she's got. Fortunately, this is a Sarah Dessen book, so the odds are good that a) she will meet a cute off-beat guy who will see what others apparently missed; and b) that at some point she'll have a sort of epiphany about herself, and aforesaid COBG, that empowers her to stand up and take part in her life instead of letting it just roll over her. Sarah weaves a spell of summer like no one else, and this is set in Colby, also the setting of Along for the Ride. It's the quintessial beach town, and this is a quintessential summer story. The other characters are great too, including her mom, fitness guru Kiki Sparks, her wonderfully eccentric aunt, the COBG and Isabel and Morgan, the co-workers who help bring her back to life.
