Petra has decided to rent out his father’s store and they need to clear it out before a new family from Olde Quainte, the Twicklehams, arrive. Then he decides to stay home for the sake of playing high school sports.

I smiled, cried, laughed, yelled. Besides a fantastic story, Moriarty has created loveable characters and I completely adore each and every one of them. The same vibrancy of characters and the nuances of their relationships. Above all, I absolutely loved how this was played into the story, which is full of moments of ambiguity.

But in hindsight I explained my lack of enjoyment with the fact that that book had been written and published for an adult audience as I Have a Bed Made of Buttermilk Pancakes before it was dusted off and forcibly reshaped into something the Ashbury-reading crowd might spend money on – girly covers included.

They were the only thing connecting the two stories, and I mean the only thing. I fell head over heels in love with this book.
