“Ruby, where is your mother?”

Ruby knows that the game is up. For the past few months, she’s been on her own in the yellow house, managing somehow, knowing that her mother will probably never return.

That’s how she comes to live with Cora, the sister she hasn’t seen in ten years, and Cora’s husband Jamie, whose down-to-earth demeanor makes it hard for Ruby to believe he founded the most popular networking Web site around. A luxurious house, fancy private school, a new wardrobe, the promise of college and a future—it’s a dream come true. So why is Ruby such a reluctant Cinderella, wary and defensive? And why is Nate, the genial boy next door with some secrets of his own, unable to accept the help that Ruby is just learning to give?

Bestselling author Sarah Dessen explores the heart of a gutsy, complex girl dealing with unforeseen circumstances and learning to trust again.

    " It only gets 4 stars because there wasn't as much of a happily ever after as I was hoping for. Great book otherwise though. "

    " Sarah Dessen, why did I read another book of yours? Also, why do you keep writing the same book? Also also, why do you set your stories in fake-Chapel Hill with an obnoxiously nicknamed state university ("The U," really?) instead of just fixing them in a geographic location? "

    " An amazing book by a fabulous author! I recommend this for any age! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 5/16/2011

    " My third Sarah Dessen book, and while I really enjoyed the other two, I found this one difficult to get thru. It felt slow and dragging, to the point where there wasn't a tangible connection until about 300 pages in. I live Sarah Dessen's novels, but not this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aishwarya | 5/14/2011

    " quite and awesome book.
    like all dessen novels it was a romance but i loved the situations.
    it was realistic at the same time it was sort of fantasy, so read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cici | 5/12/2011

    " This is my favorite Sarah Dessen book. It's just plain amazing, not that the others aren't as good. For some reason, this book just connected with me even though I have nothing in common with the main character and I got sucked into the book by the third chapter. "
