HARPERS 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 shes 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 isnt easy for Harper, but its the first step toward finding her way back home.
This book really great. Harper's character felt real. This was a great book about finding yourself and dealing with your parents divorce. I liked how the book alternated between Tennessee and home. It's hard not to like Harper and she's very honest.Harper grew up a lot in this book. Teddy was also a great character. He really cared about Harper and wanted to know everything about her. This was a great love story also. All the character's were great. I couldn't put the book down. I thought I wasn't going to like this book that much but I was wrong. I definitely recommend this book to anyone.
