And there it was again, the troubling notion that I barely knew the people I loved.

Daddy’s girl Rebecca Muir has long known exactly what she wants to do after high school: attend the prestigious architecture program at Columbia University, three thousand miles away from her home. But as the end of school nears, things are no longer so clear cut—she’s just fallen in love with the perfect guy, Jackson; her dad has gotten a new job in New York, so her whole family is following her to the east coast; and she’s having trouble ignoring her premonition that something terrible is coming.

And it soon becomes clear why: shortly after the move, her father reveals that he’s leaving them, and Rebecca is left to pick up the pieces of her former life. When everything can change in an instant, Reb doesn’t know what path to follow or whom to trust—and she must begin to search for what she really wants to do with her life.

Justina Chen, the acclaimed author of North of Beautiful, has created a moving and powerful story about the struggle that comes from betrayal, the uncertainty of life after high school, and the joy that ultimately comes from discovering what’s truly in your heart.

    " this book is amazingly well written and the plot wasn't really my thing though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/10/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While some might say that it's sort of a "too good to be true" type of story overall, I think it's nice to read immensely positive stories now and then to remind us what we're capable of if we think positively and follow our intuition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexa | 7/29/2013

    " I think it's an extremely in-depth look at how it feels to have your father suddenly leave your family as the result of an affair. However, Reb's emotions just take over the whole book and they are constantly being explained to the reader in a way that took me out of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla A | 5/17/2013

    " A good story with some I don't know stuff I wouldn't have added. But the people will like it. "

    " Teen girl Rebecca learns to embrace her inner psychic (and trust her estranged boyfriend) in the wake of her parents' split and the family's move cross country. Nicely realized settings (Puget Sound, NYC, Hawaii) but supernatural element felt a little out-of-place. "
