It was another enjoyable read from Mya. I liked the world and characters she created, and story engrossed me from the beginning.
In here we meet teenage Miranda, a sweet girl whose life was perfect until her parents divorce. After that her life changed. She was not able to coop with the changes and the fact that they were no longer a family. It get even more difficult after her father introduced her to his soon to be new wife. To escape the pain her mum has taken her and her friend to a place where they always came as a family. Miranda is spending there her fifteenth birthday. She was expecting another holidays with her mum. But everything changes once she meets Abby. A girl that is more than what is seems. She has ulterior motives towards Miranda.
This book shows you the difficulties of moving forward, of the clash of two different worlds. And power of understanding, that sometimes the difficulty and hurtful at the beginning decision, are the best ones to be truly happy.
Well deserved 4 stars.
