HARPER’S DAD IS getting a divorce from her beloved stepmother, Jane. Even worse, Harper has lost her stepsister, Tess; the divorce divides them. Harper decides to escape by joining a volunteer program to build a house for a family in Tennessee who lost their home in a tornado. Not that she knows a thing about construction.

Soon she’s living in a funky motel and working long days in blazing heat with a group of kids from all over the country. At the site, she works alongside Teddy, the son of the family for whom they are building the house. Their partnership turns into a summer romance, complete with power tools. Learning to trust and love Teddy isn’t easy for Harper, but it’s the first step toward finding her way back home.

    " Read this one in less than a day...easy, quick, enjoyable read. It's by the same author of A Brief Chapter in My Impossible Life, which I definitely need to read! "

    " I kind of felt the book didn't live up to its full potential. I was so excited to read it - a group of teenagers coming together virtually in the middle of nowhere to build a house for a family that lost theirs. I was looking forward to something like an action-packed adventure: maybe a couple of tornadoes and the long journey of building a house from start to finish. I don't know how to describe it - I just felt there were so many story lines left untouched. I didn't like how half the book was Harper at home, in the past, and the other in the present. I liked the book, but it didn't live up to my expectations. "
