Vanessa Carlisle has the next year of her life planned. Coast through senior year. Graduated salutatorian. Spend the next summer in Europe with her best friend. Come back from Europe in time to make orientation at Yale, where she'll be joining her boyfriend, with whom she'll live happily ever after. The End. Except that it's not. Right before school starts, the Carlisle's get a shocking phone call. Vanessa's half-brother is going to come live with them for the year. Yes, brother. Who no one even knew existed. Well, they didn't know he was a relation. Everyone in America has heard of Reed Vaughn, Hollywood bad-boy who needs to get away from that scene or he'll end up in therapy forever. Oh, and Reed's a senior. Starting at Vanessa's school. Suddenly, Vanessa's plans are shattered. She's never been good with change, and now she's scrambling for a Plan B... one that will still end with happily ever after. Though the plot is a little far-fetched, the writing style and characters makes it seem absolutely realistic. The reader, who will probably be smarter than Vanessa, will also want her to find happily ever after, but maybe not the way she sees it.
