Sam has always had a secret; her father is an alcoholic. This takes a major toll on her and her family as Sam tries to grow up as normally as possible. Her mother makes excuses for her Dad, and her little brother Luke is too young to help. So in a moment of desperation, Sam turns to a girl named Juliet who she always sees in the library, writing her an anonymous letter explaining her situation and asking for help. As the story progresses, Sam and "Juliet" exchange many notes in between pages 32 and 33 in The History of Modern Whaling. However, Sam also finds herself with another problem when an older boy from the library named Drew takes an interest in her. After lying to her friends and ditching their usual sleepover for a high school party, she gets herself into a lot of trouble with both her friends and herself. Things also get worse when her father, who was drunk, smashed a bottle in her brother Luke's face. She is constantly reminded of this by the stitches on his face from his nose to his ear. Her father goes to a rehab center called Shady Brook Farm to get help for his growing problem. This is a great book that has a surprise twist in the end that was great. She stays true to her insight and the story is written perfectly in the persona of a middle schooler. Any Natasha Friend fan will enjoy this book very much!

I liked it,

I liked this book but the thing with it was, it just ended. You never found out some stuff. It just left you hanging. But I liked the story overall, it wasn't bad I just wish the ending was different.

    Best Natasha novel

    I think that this is the best book Natasha wrote. it's exciting, unlike her other novels. It's also good for people who are going through the same problem. It can help you through your problems. The book is also fun to read and interesting.
