This was a perfect coming-of-age novel! I loved "flipping" between the perspectives and watching the characters grow. Bryce particularly interested me. He seemed to undergo the most change out of all the characters and I'd have to say his family was pretty dysfunctional also. I admired Juli's spirit and she was definitely a person I could relate too. Although this book is intended for middle-school level. I'd still recommend it to others. It's a book anyone can enjoy.
