Despite her best efforts, Ann is filled with anger, self-pity, and resentment at her situation and for months she puts up walls to keep people away. Gradually Ann begins to let some people in, like Danny, a kind, sensitive person with an affinity for Thoreau, and Maggie, a head cheerleader with more substance than Ann believes.
When a handsome football player wants to date her, Ann is accepted into the popular crowd and enjoys her new status. But then she finds herself in a terrifying situation that forces her to come to terms with her past and present, and ultimately, to envision a future for herself.

Ann finds her world turned upside down when her father dies leaving behind her mom, big brother, little brother and herself. Her mom becomes an alcoholic, the family never see Ann's big brother and Uncle, leaving Ann to care for her little family. Although life hasn't been kind, just like other teen's, she finds herself crushing on the popular jock who doesn't even notice her. She makes a pact with herself, she will turn things around and date Jacob Waters, but due to Ann's fiery temper she spends most of her school day in detention with others like her. With her determination she finds herself becoming more distant from her best friend and doesn't see in front of her the guy that really cares for her.
It's such a touching story that the reader has a job putting down. This isn't just for young adults but adults too, the underlying thread running through this is what a lot of teens have to deal with and although a sad story it is something that stays with you long after you finish the last page.
I really enjoyed the way that this written, it’s super easy to read and has some fun little comics scattered throughout the book.
We follow the life and high school journey of Ann. She’s one of those girls that we all knew in high school, always in detention and often fantasising about boys and what she’d do if she were with them. She’s really likeable and I could see a lot of my teenage self within her, although maybe she’s a bit more irrational!
If your looking for a fun, easy and relatable read, this is a cracker!
Plus side to the book is parents would understand, even if these doesn’t happen to their kids, what other kids might be experiencing on the domestic home front. So, a light and entertaining, but definite read for everyone, mostly, I would pick, people responsible for kids and teens.
