Big image


Macy looks forward to a boring, yet busy and stressful summer while her boyfriend is at Brain Camp. She will have to take on dealing with SAT drills, vocabulary, and a boring job at the library. She also lives with her mother, which is even worse since her father has died. This book is filled with exciting moments as well as sad ones. It portrays a life a teenager dealing with life as it comes her way. Even though the genre is young-adult fiction, I would recommend it to someone 13 & up, or someone who is an advanced reader in the eighth grade.
