Heather MacLean is in a new world. She's always been happy to be a Mormon but now, at age sixteen, she's moved to a small town where Mormons are mainstream instead of a minority. It's a shock to her system -- and her love life. Though she doesn't feel like she fits in at her new school, Heather finds friends at the restaurant where she works part-time. Her new friends aren't Mormons. But that doesn't keep some of them from being interested in more than friendship. The most tempting of them is her best friend's twin brother. His name is Wayne and he's got a natural charisma that makes Heather wonder if she'd like to follow him -- no matter where he leads. Guiding her through her growing pains is Heather's older brother's new best friend, Ben. He's an awkward, thoughtful boy who calls Heather "Parakeet" after his family's pet bird. Can Heather overcome her prejudices and Ben's reserve and find romance with him? Or will she take a giant step away from the way of life she's always known and follow Wayne? This is a clean, uplifting novel about growth, choice, and love. Set in the early 1990s, the story offers something for young adult readers and for older readers looking to revisit their own high school days. Look the rest of the series: "Bats in Between" and "Swans in Sight" and Jandy's new series, "Hurricane Hana."

So cute. The characters are real. No stereotypes, no bad guys, no boring perfect people. Looking forward to reading book 2.
I loved this sooo much! I usually dont like love stories but this is cutish and everything seem like stuff that would happen in a normal persins life. I also like this because i relate to the main character and this book just makes me feel a bit better about life. Also it is a good book because there isnt any cussing or any of that kind of stuff.
I luv this book but sadly the next two cost money... :(
It was a good book overall, but it was a little pointless. Ifound that it was an okay book, but the biggest problem was what, trying to not crush on a guy. Big deal.
IT'S A LOVE STORY?????? Did not see that coming.
Its good so far........ : )
Srry that was for paranormal romance
Does it actually talk about parakeets?
