Adelaide McGregor was spinning out of control, in a world of pain that no one knew anything about. She put up a front, displaying a picture perfect girl that everyone wanted to be, but no one was truly there for her. Then she was sent away to live near her grandparents due to bad behavior when her mother decided she just didn't want to deal with her any longer. Without a penny to her name and nowhere else to go, her life was uprooted to North Carolina. Everything seems to be changing for the better with her fresh new start until she meets a guy who flips her world upside down all over again. Sometimes you have to make it through the struggles of imperfection in life for everything to come out as complete perfection, but Della hasn't quite learned that lesson yet.
What a great book. First I have to say this is my first book by this author, but I plan on reading more from her. Character Creation is always an important factor in any book I read, and C. A Williams has created characters that are fabulous. Della is a wonderful young girl, struggling to overcome her past. I do love the interactions between all the characters and the by-play or relationships.
Character growth occurs in this book. The only problem I truly had is that the book left me hanging. I truly HATE cliffhangers of any sort. The only other issue I had was Della's mother, gah what a Beeeyatch! This book is one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. One second you are literally laughing along with Della, the next you are practically in tears with her.
I love moral lessons in a book, and this one does have one. It's the one I always told my girls, people who love you accept you for who and what you are regardless of past indiscretions. And I love that Della learns that important lesson along the way.
I hate spoilers so I won't go into any other details. Just go grab yourself a copy of this wonderful story, it truly is a 5 star read.

My Choice Song!
I am a stay at home mom to two crazy little boys, with another baby on the way.(Finally Pink!) I've been married to my high school sweetheart for almost six years now and he is my biggest supporter. I've always had a love for books since the time I first started reading and started swapping books with my mom when I got a little older. My love for reading turned into a love for writing and I've enjoyed every second of it.
