I read this book so many times and I can definitely relate to Auden about staying up late. I feel like if I had a book hero, Auden would be mine because I love how she is so passionate about academics and takes it seriously. The character development in the book was also great and I recommend reading this book.

Riding a bike is one of the many things that Auden has missed during her childhood. During that summer, she goes to visit her father, wife and baby. She meets a boy named Eli who shows Auden the nocturnal sights of Colby, trying to bring back her past to her.

This book is about a teenage girl named Auden who's parents are divorced and she has to go to spend her summer with her dad and stepmom with their colicky baby who wouldn't stop crying the minute auden walked through their door.I love how Auden develops a relashionship and gets closer with her Dad and her stepmom, caring for the baby....Great book, I recommend it.

This great book is about a closed-in teenage girl who moves to her father and stepmother's house. As she experiences the exciting life of an average teenager which she has been denied for years, she finds that there is much more to life than just studying.

It has some sadness in it, which I can relate to.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a cheesy romantic and I enjoyed it a lot. Auden, the main character, gets shipped to her dad's for the summer and her stepmom. Auden; the perfect daughter who never got to experience the real teenage life. Elliot introduces her to a life she could have only dreamed of, and she's just going along with the ride ;)
