Have you ever moved around so many times you never had a chance to make friends? Calle, a down to earth girl, knew firsthand how that felt. Her mother moved them around the country ever since she could remember. Boyfriend after boyfriend, they'd start a new life and once it was over they would find a different, random location. Calle's constant love was her music and writing. I loved the fact that she listened to old school music on a walkman. Every chapter would begin with a quote from her lyrical writing. It helped me as a reader understand Calle's previous experiences. I was engrossed by the story and continually thrived off her believable personality. The greatest traits found in Kim's protagonist was her ability to stay true to herself. Not only did she assimilate well but, she always remained grounded and loyal to her mother. Kim's character development was spot on; each secondary person brought something eccentric to the table. I enjoyed seeing Calle interact with the drama kids. Eli (one of my favorite characters), Alexa and the rest of the gang were welcoming and quite entertaining. The sense of stability and friendship was good for her. Also, Cass, an outsider who was considered a freak was a unique, tough cookie. Peeling back her layers piqued my interest in her secretive background. Of course there were also two people I disliked - Amber and Sam. Amber was Sam's girlfriend, her stuck up demeanor made me cringe. On the other hand, Sam at first was a jerk to Calle, he liked her one minute and the next he ignored her. I couldn't stand his hot and cold behavior until the reason behind his actions was revealed. Throughout the novel, there was a mystery behind all the moving around especially, when Calle's father was brought up. I was kept in the dark until about the last sixty pages. The build up was thrilling and reeled me into a state of non-stop page turning. In conclusion, this teenage nomad won me over. Everything from the characters to plot was successfully executed with a balance of family issues, friendship and love.
