    The author really brought me back to my days as a 17 year old girl by reaching into the mind of Aden The sarcastic look at the outside world, the insecurities, very real family dynamics, eclectic friendships, what it s like to feel a connection with the opposite sex and then second guess everything about those feelings and yourself Without revealing any spoilers, Aden definitely comes out on top which is a moment of pride for those of us a...
