My name is Jenna. I go to a high school where I’m part of the marching band and the cheerleading squad. I’m pretty busy, but I always find time to read. I’m also very creative and I like doing little crafts out of random things I find.
Emily Curtis is a simple tomboy that loves to work on cars, just like her father, who owns his own body shop. But when Emily’s mom dies from cancer, their whole lives are torn apart. The two-person family loses everything; cell phones, the company, and their house.
Emily’s Aunt Darlene offers Emily and her father to come live with her family, and Emily is not excited. Her cousin, Whitney, is the same age as her, and she remembers her to be a rich snob. Emily feels like her life is at an all-time low, and to top it all off, she’s lost her faith in God.
But, the longer Emily stays at her aunt’s house, the more happy she becomes. She meets the boy next door, Zander, who has a mutual interest in cars. They spend almost all of their time together. She meets Chelsea, a girl who quickly becomes her best friend. And she becomes involved in the church, even though she isn’t too positive about her faith just yet.
This novel is a story about Emily finding herself again after the tragedy of losing her mother. Emily also learns that there are people that are going to be there for her, she just has to let them in.
I highly recommend this novel! Every reader will love Emily’s character, and won’t be able to put the book down!
