One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies Reviews
This book starts with Ruby on an airplane, unwillingly moving away from the only life she's ever known. Her mother has died and she is about to live with a father she's never known, except from his movies. The closer he wants to get, the further she pulls away. She struggles through culture shock as she is suddenly attending a posh LA high school, there are no seasons, she doesn't know anyone. Somehow she manages to keep a sense of humor throughout everything and eventually understands who her father really is. This book made me laugh and cry and it's my favorite of all of Sonya Sones' work.
This book captured the best details in life. "You chose" ruby is a great character, you can relate to her in so many ways. I absolutely connected to this book. Sonya wrote this book in a very special and fun way. It was a definite page turner!

Is the best one yet there are a few mistakes forgetting to space it words but who cares? I sure didn't SONYA PLEASE MAKE MORE BOOKS PLEASE
This book was refreshingly enjoyable. A perfect mix of humor, drama, and romance. A regular page turner (yee-haw).I would highly recommend you read it. Especially if your between the ages of 10 and100 :)
Written as a free-form journal, this book was an easy yet very emotional reading of the life of a teenager.
