Sometimes Lily wishes she weren't so sensible. If she were less reliable, then perhaps she'd have more fun. As it is, her hardworking but flaky mom and her dreamy older brother count on her to run the house. She wishes things could be different, but how can she change her responsible ways? Perhaps, she thinks, she should fall in love!

Meanwhile, her scheming grandmother is planning a family party and, as is typical, Lily worries. Her fears are not entirely unfounded. Her grandfather has recently disowned her brother, and her brother has a new girlfriend who might not fit in. Her mother will probably bring the loony Mrs. Nightingale from the adult day care center where she works. And these are only the predictable complications. Lily is beginning to understand how easily unimaginable things can happen, too.

Back to the question of love, what is this new feeling Lily experiences when Daniel Steadman is near? Could it be the cure? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This book droned on an on for much longer than a day. I just couldn't attach to any of the characters and I wonder if any teen readers would... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/30/2014

    " High School aged, Lily, knows she is the most responsible one in her family and fears she is middle-aged before her time. Clarke has created a light, yet rich novel bringing a breath of fresh air in the usual tormented storm of Young Adult fiction. She also adds hints of Australian jargon to give the writing a multicultural interest that will surely intrigue the reader. "

    " It had some info about how you can feel if you are different! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Whipple | 1/28/2014

    " I LOVED this book. Lily was the most adorable main character I've met in a long time. Don't be put off by the young adult genre--it is well-written enough for anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginger | 1/21/2014

    " Excellent omniscient POV. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ms. K-M | 1/21/2014

    " All Lily wants is one perfect day--one day when nothing goes wrong. When her mother doesn't bring home a patient from the nursing home where she works, whenher father calls her on her birthday, not six months later, when her grandfather doesn't threaten her brother Lonnie with an ax, and when Lonnie finally gets his act together. Bringing the whole family together again won't be easy, but if they can all make their peace, Lily will finally have one whole and perfect day. "

    " Great book for middle school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra Bieber | 1/14/2014

    " This book is very good because as you read on, all the little secrets unravel! So if you like a book that you cling to and never want to put down, then why not read this book ? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/8/2014

    " Great listen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 11/24/2013

    " Each chapter focuses on a different character. None of the characters were interesting enough for me to care what happened next. I stopped after 100 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 9/5/2013

    " This reminded me of "Criss Cross" in that all the individual stories connect in some way. I enjoyed this one more than Criss Cross. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheralyn | 8/16/2013

    " A well written book that I really enjoyed. My only disappointment being the language, gratefully there was not much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suey | 7/5/2013

    " It's a fun book about a girl, and all the people directly, or indirectly in her life, that come together for a whole and perfect day. Quite uplifting actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiff | 12/10/2012

    " This was a quiet, sweet story where I cared about the characters, and I liked how the stories were interwoven. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hallie | 8/6/2011

    " pretty decent and interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 7/6/2011

    " Book on CD. Good story, although it switches to and from all the character's perspectives and that confused me at first (because I was listening to it and not reading it) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 6/7/2011

    " One whole and perfect day was really good. I loved the way that everyone's stories mixed together more and more through to the end. It had heaps of quirky little facts about the characters and they were described very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie G. | 11/24/2010

    " This was a pleasant departure from edgy YAs, while still covering some important issues. It all wraps up a little, too neatly, but left me in a good mood. There's a lot to be said for that in a book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 6/21/2010

    " I couldn't finish this book. The characters were interesting, but not enough to keep me entertained. It felt very disjointed, and I was disappointed because normally I enjoy stories about wacky families, but this was one I just couldn't finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan Albertson | 5/25/2010

    " total bore-fest. "

    " A lovely read. You grew to like the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tessa Eger | 9/24/2009

    " Hysterical, warm, delightful. "

    " Very slow moving book. "
