This is going to be short.This was somewhat realistic and a big disappointment.Frankly, I was turned off as soon as we found out about Marisa's mother's affair. I don't condone or enjoy reading about affairs. I couldn't stand the characters in this book. None of them had a single appealing quality, especially not Marisa. I was pretty bummed, because I expected a lot more from Susane Colasanti.I had to flounce this book about a third of the way through.
