Absolutely loved this book. Highly recommend! This book was very hard to put down. The story is broken down into Then, Now and the In between sections. At times sad, at times funny, but all the time engaging and well written. Davida Jones has a rough life. She yearns for more as she grows up Mississippi. All she wants is to have her “Molly Ringwald” happy ending. Will she get it? I wont give that away. But this book does read sort of like an 80’s feel good John Hughes type of movie/book. There is the bullied ugly duckling, the handsome jock, mean girls, a mean Mom, unlikely friends, pain, romance, yearning for love and acceptance. You get the picture. Davida Jones has loved James for most of her life from afar and when he comes back into her life, her past comes back to her – especially his sister, Veronica who once played a very cruel prank on her. I wont give away the rest of story line but will highly recommend this book.
