Overview

Four girls are brought together through the power of a mysterious book that helps them sort through the issues of their very real lives. While family dinners and vacations to touristy destinations are ordinary events for her “normal” friends, fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher’s normal life means dealing with her ADHD and her mother's bipolar disorder. So why is Jessie shocked when the unexpected happens? Now her "normal" includes living in Florida with the father she always thought was dead and learning the secrets of sushi from a man who teaches by tormenting her. Life isn't any saner with her dad, but a cute guy and a mysterious book might just be the crazy Jessie needs.

Nancy Rue has started a great new series here. It may be for young adults but not too young. This first book deals with ADHD, bipolar disorder, parental suicide and much, much more. The second book dives into dating abuse (older boyfriend beating up his younger girlfriend) and takes it all the way through the trial. Heavy issues, but very well written. Great characters and realistic scenarios. For young people in high school and college these books are very appropriate, but I think it'll be awhile before my 14 year old, homeschooled daughter will be reading them. I am a huge sushi fan and found the insight into the sushi restaurant fascinating. In the second book Nancy gives us a great insight into surfing - that was also very interesting.

Review by Jill Williamson Fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher has a system to deal with her with her mom’s bipolar disorder and her own ADHD—until her father shows up. Her dead father. Apparently, mom told a little lie. And on the day her dad comes to meet her, mom ends up in the hospital. And now Jesse’s only relative is her dad, who lives in Florida, far away from all her friends. So Jesse goes, but she isn’t staying, even when she starts to like her job at the local sushi restaurant, the cute guy who works at the bike shop, and the mysterious book she “stole” from the airport. Loved it! And let me just say, I could relate to Jessie’s randomness and mood swings. This is a really fun story about a girl who is searching. She’s had to depend on herself for so long that it’s hard for her to trust anyone. But her dad isn’t like her mom at all. It’s weird for Jesse to have an adult who cares. The writing is funny and thoughtful. The characters are fabulous, real, and struggling like the rest of us. I flew through the book and hope I’ll be able to read all the books in this series. Highly recommended.

This book I can definitely relate to because I am just like Jessie...except I have not been diagnosed with ADHD. But maybe I should be.lol....nervous laughter.But She is the same as me because we try to get away from people, always trying to just leave the room (without really,physically leaving it).Her friends are always trying to get her to get into a relationship with a guy, but she doesn't want to!!!She just lives with people who don't seem to care.And she thinks it's fine like that until her so-called dead dad comes to meet her.Her mom is diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and she has to go to Florida to live with Lou(her "dead" dad.She meets a kid named Rocky and him and Jessie "seem" to be like Fire and Ice towards each other. But they learn to just "be".And soon they start to fall....AWWWW. They are sooooo super cute.I love Rocky!!! I would sooooo date him!!!
