Whitley Johnson's dream summer with her divorce dad has turned into a nightmare. She's just met his new fiancee and her kids. The fiancee's son? Whitley's one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin' great. Worse, she totally doesn't fit in with her dad's perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn't "do" friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn't her stepbrother...at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together. Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger's most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about.

How blind could they be to their daughter? I think my heart broke for her a few times.As for having great fri...
A Midsummer's Nightmare is going on my favorites shelf. I read this heartfelt and authentic contemporary in one sitting, literally unable to put it down, and I felt the full spectrum of emotions while reading it. I laughed out loud. I cried (for real). This book holds a special place in my heart. Co...
Tiene algunos fallitos (siento que me han faltado algunas escenas) pero es totalmente estilo Kody Keplinger :) Me ha gustado algo menos que Shut Out y The DUFF sigue siendo su mejor libro con diferencia, pero es una lectura totalmente recomendable.
Pros:* Not your typical summer romance story* Main character actually has reason to behave the way she does* Step-parent is actually a human being who cares!Cons:* Ending is a little after school special* Main character can be a bit exasperating at times * The word cyber-bulling gets tossed aroundMa...
