This book is truly a good story. I know that Mrs. Spaugh has received alot of trash from readers on its material, but the themes and events of the story truly reveal a good plot and lovable as well as hatable characters. Also, Mrs. Spaugh is the best English teacher in the world!!!! no joke, she is my english teacher too. Collins Hill High School!!! ~Ashley~ 6th period lol

A story about one family in the midst of their daughter's wedding. It has love, crisis, lost dreams, hope, and humor. I found it to be a real page turner.

This book illistrated true human emotions in everyday circumstances. I found myself in these characters and hated to close the book when I was finished! I can't wait to see what Spaugh will deliver next!

This is a beautifully written story of a young woman's realization that her dreams of a picture-perfect life will never come true, and really can't come true for anyone. The author vividly captures the character's thoughts and personality, and by the end of the novel, you feel as though you are saying goodbye to a new friend you've just become very close to.
