This novel follows the story of sixteen-year-old Jessie Holmes, a Chicago girl who has suddenly moved into the chic LA life. Burdened with the grief of her mom's death, confusion with her new life, longing for her best friend, resentment at her dad, Jessie navigates her new life with messages from an anonymous "guide". As the story develops through emails and IMs, and the normal cut-throat high school life, the reader can't help but wonder who the "guide" really is...
I loved the playful way, Buxbaum navigates through Jessie's life, I couldn't help but find myself smiling or giggling through some of the conversations.
So if I had to - tell you three things- about the book I would say:
1) read it 2) READ IT 3) seriously you aren't checking it out already :))
