Description via Goodreads:
Never in one place long enough to make friends or put down roots, Colie doesn't expect her trip to the North Carolina coast to change a thing. Always the outcast, she's resigned to a holiday with only her eccentric aunt Mira for company. But when she finds a job waitressing at the Last Chance cafe, she also finds acceptance, new friends, and the beginnings of romance...My thoughts:
I think this is more like 4.5 stars but I'll give it 5. I really enjoyed this one and found it nicer to read than the other books I've read by Dessen. The characters are all fun and quirky and I enjoyed slowly discovering who they really were. The story was well paced and there was never a dull moment. It was a fun, relaxing read and meaningful at the same time.
