luved it but not good for younger kids

this book was amazing!!! but there was sex once with high school students and a break up between them because the guy was trying to force her into sex. there is a halloween party where the teens are drinking and there is lots of comments on one of the girls' boobs. one of the main characters dad also abused him as a child. it is a very interseting book though and nothing kids dont learn in life skills.

Enthralling love story with different ending keeps you turning pages.

This is a total page-turner! I couldn't put it down! Both with troubled pasts, Cameron's dad was just messed up and Jenna's (Jennifer) food issues cause her daily pain. They grew up together until one day Cameron just disappeared... Then years later, he returns to find that the Jennifer he once knew has transformed into a totally different person, now preferring to be called Jenna, but he still loves her anyway. Like she says throughout the story, what she and Cameron have is a different kind of love. He knows how to bring out the old her and she still cares deeply for him. Even though she hides her deep fear of her ugly past coming back to haunt her, she sticks with Cam. I especially loved the ending... not like every love story.

Worthy for anyone

Great book with a great story, though sad as it may be. It exposes readers to things that really do exist, even if they aren't too good, but it's a book that I would definitely read again.

Let your kids learn.

If you hold your children back from reading books that involve certain situations, they will grow up to be ignorant and believe that nothing bad happens in the world. I think that by age 13 they will be able to cope with reading about Cameron's dad.

perfect for teenagers facing their first love.

a very good love story, but it also deals with how first loves don't always last.

This book is about discovering who you are, and unlike like most books written for the young adult audience, it doesn't end in a kiss between the two main characters, and them living happily ever after. It involves real life and real life situations. It shows how important friendship is. How one little thing can take everything you've previously known and turn it completely upside down. All in all, a good read for teens
