4.5 stars for me, alth...

4.5 stars for me, although part of that is how the book resonated with my experiences at Andi's age. Not the details, but but her emotional responses to her parents divorce and the loss of childhood friends.The character of Andi was what made the book work. I liked Andi's voice, it was subtle, but clearly that of young teen. The book was at its most interesting when it explored Andi's relationships-- with her mother, struggling with alcoholism; with her best friend Bridget, who is going through her own upheaval; with her father, who has decided to move on with his life. She's self-centered in a normal teen sort of way, but she goes along with her mother signing her up as an alter girl (which she doesn't like) and to help by reading to residents of a local nursing home (which she grows to enjoy). She gets involved with a local food bank, and really seems to grow from helping others.The book is nicely written, and I think the short chapters worked well with the first person narration. The book moved enough to not get mired in the drama of her life, the serious balanced with the serious-to-Andi events like her first Sadie Hawkins dance. I look forward to reading other books by this author.
