The life of Andie Drown is interesting to say the least! The entire story takes place from 1988 - 1992 with a few flashbacks from before that time intermixed. Andie's life is fairly typical of all big haired teens of the late eighties. However her life gets thrown for a loop by an unexpected change in her family. Being an athlete on a volleyball scholarship at an all-girls' school, she dedicates (or tries to) her life to her studies and volleyball.

The antics and trouble Andie finds herself in, however, is hardly typical and I found myself wanting to yell to her to think first! I didn't particularly like Andie's character, feeling like she tried to play with people's emotions too often. I felt sorry for Travis who just seemed to pine for her no matter what she did. But at the same time wanted to tell Travis to open his eyes and stop falling for it. Stone, her main love interest, is a soldier very dedicated to his seemingly life-long career in the military. He's somewhat of an alpha character but their connection is undeniable.

This book was a good read, it kept me interested wondering what would happen next. I'm very happy for Jennifer for a great debut novel and can't wait to read what happens next in the Orders of the Sky series!!

I have such mixed emotions with this story. I can't say there is a single character in the story that I liked. I got angry with so many of them. I guess it brought out so many emotions, yet I could not relate to a single person. Having said that, maybe in reality that is "a good thing," the author took me outside of my "comfort zone" and made me react to what is different for me.

This story is from June 1988 to December 1992. The story revolves around Andie Drown and the people in her life. Her mother just decides to abandon her family, leaving her husband of 17 years and four children to move back to her wealthy parents in Wilmington. Her father who drinks and runs around but seems content to settle down with a younger woman and her child. Her twin brothers who party all the time and the underage drinking and her younger sister who proves to be vindictive. Then the childhood friend of her brothers, Travis, who pines after her. Andie gets involved with Stone Harrison, a soldier from the same town. They have a love affair, become engaged but no real trust or loyalty in their relationship. Andie does go to college and completes her triple major and graduates but has no real ambition. She has a few college friends, with Helene being the main one, a woman who sleeps around.

I was blown away how the story ended and screaming, "You can't leave it like that!" This is book one of three! I am holding my breathe waiting for the next one and to find answers.

This is a book about the journey that Andie has to go through. The book covers the course of her four years at college. While it deals with her love for Stone, if you look more closely it is truly about Andie needing to find out who she is. It is about the struggles that she has to go through, the challenges she faced in the past, in the present, and will face in the future.

She knows she loves Stone, she knows what she wants to study in college, and what she wants to be in the future but will she get the man she has always loved? Graduate from college with the degree she wants and get the career she has been wanting?

This story although fictional screams true story. Andie makes mistakes, horrible choices, and is not the perfect leading lady like you often see in books and movies now. Honestly, it was refreshing to see a character who is flawed, making poor choices like so many college students are making every day. There were times when I yelled at Andie for the things she was doing or saying, times when I shook my head because I knew that would not go well. The thing is I cared, I wanted Andie to make good choices. I wanted to see her succeed.

Now I have to wait for the next book to see what will happen.

This is not my typical read and at first I wasn't sure I would enjoy it but, as the story progressed I found myself anticipating what crazy antics Andie, her family, and friends would get into next.

I can't wait to read the next book in this series and would recommend this book to all readers!

As much as I loved this book it made me angry too! I went through a lot of different emotions with it. I was angry at a lot of the characters. Being a soldier's wife I know how hard it can be to be in a relationship with a soldier, but Andie just isn't cut out to be a soldiers wife. I wanted her to end up with Travis. There are many different facets to this book, love, betrayal, heart ache, happiness, sadness, anger...it really was amazing. The last few sentences in the book have me hanging on...I saw part of it coming but was FLOORED by another part of it. HURRY UP 2ND BOOK!! I'm impatiently waiting...

This story definitely kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Really liked Andie's role. All the antics going on kept me interested. I just totally did not expect the ending. Caught me by surprise that's for sure. I just got Rivers and can't wait to start on it (which will be this morning!! :)) Thanks for the great read in Drown.
