Sometimes it is the one who knows you best who can love you best.


Penny has lived her life letting others take the reins, leaving her to simply follow in line. After completing her senior year of College she’ll join her father’s marketing firm, get married and start a family.


When her parents drop a bomb on her — that they are getting divorced — Penny decides it’s time to start living by her own rules. And when she meets mysterious P.J. Hawthorne, a published writer who seems to know much more about Penny than she lets on, she knows this is her chance to finally get her life moving in the right direction.


But as questions about her new life overwhelm her, so do thoughts of sweet and gorgeous Alex — who just so happens to be her best friend.


What follows is a series of poor decisions, each one more worrisome than the last, forcing Penny further and further away from not only Alex, but from becoming the woman she’s sure she’s meant to be.

My Review ♥

There are so many things I want to say about this book, but there’s so much that can be said that would give away too much.

I have a soft spot for Penny, no one deserves to go through what she went through. Parents going through a divorce is so hard, and in Penny’s case I think it is 10 times worse. How she deals with it though? That drove me insane. In this book I loved Penny just as much as a I hated Penny. She was so insightful and real, but at the same time I hated that. The realness of this book was earth shattering. Typically when reading you feel like you are in a fantasy land. Rachel did such a good job capturing the essence of this story that it’s almost too real. For this reason it is absolutely one of my favorite books of the year. I could not put it down. I actually would sneak and read a little bit here and there while I was at work so I could finish it.

Now Alex, her best friend. He’s the best friend that every girl needs, but how do you not fall for that? Every girl needs her best friend and her lover to be one person, that’s the best part about a relationship. Yet, these two are in the friend zone. I felt for him throughout this whole story. It would really be hard to see your best friend go through all of this turmoil and not be able to help. To not have your help be accepted. Sometimes you just need to be there for someone, even if it means doing something your uncomfortable with, and that was Alex. He was there. And for this reason, 80% of this book I wanted to absolutely shake Penny.

I cannot wait for you guys to read this and see what you all think. I loved the whole book so much!
