Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have a tendency to fall apart.

She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. Her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition.

Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?

Rich with emotion, Sarah Ockler delivers a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery.

I loved Sarah Ockler's other book, Twenty-Boy Summer, and I expected the same beautiful writing and heartfelt story for Fixing Delilah.
I got exactly that.

Delilah is a great character to relate to. I related well with being caught up in the family drama, and I feel that most everyone else who reads this will.
Every character was so great! Patrick, Aunt Rachel, Emily; they are all very memorable. The surprises were actually quite surprising! Definitely something I was not expecting.

At times funny and at other times sad, Fixing Delilah is a story I won't soon forget.
