They think that avoidance is the solution to their problem. But they do end in a way that is true to real life and this scarily believable story. While dealing with her life she bumps into Jared, a friend of her brothers from school and they hit it off from the start. You have many heart-squeezing, all-tooth-smiles to look forward to. I never once got bored with the story and I actually read straight somwone the book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books someobe want to read.

Even though we were never engaged talked about itit’s hard on you when you really want it to work.
Nothing was completely easy for her as hard decisions often are not. And Jared’s family is physically and emotionally affectionate, and she pines for that and loves that she’s adopted into their family.
But her constant attitude and refusal to talk about anything meaningful started to grate on me. In her senior year, she meets Jared, who is in college.
