this book was really well written. great characters and i loved the story line. i found the ending very sad though and almost cried :( Deb Caletti is a great writer and i strongly recommend her other great reads especially 'Stay"

This story begins with a cliffhanger that will keep you reading until the end! I love the format of the book, how one chapter is a letter while the other goes back to the original plot, it develops the story in a more interesting way. Sometimes it gets confusing keeping track of all the events. Really enjoy the Cricket's love for dogs and how soulfully she describes her relationship with her dog, Jupiter. Her indecisiveness can be a bit frustrating, but overall was a very enjoyable read!

I'm not really a fan of Deb Caletti's early books, but the last 2 I really enjoyed (The Six Rules of Maybe & Stay) and this one is probably now my new fave! I do wish the boyfriend had a stronger voice in the story, but regardless, it was still really good. very "sarah dessen-like"

Cricket’s on a self-imposed break from her longtime boyfriend—but she’s picked a bad week to sort out her love life. For one thing, her mother’s romance is taking center stage: After jilting two previous fiancÉs, her mom is finally marrying Dan Jax, whom Cricket loves. But as wedding attendees arrive for a week of festivities at a guesthouse whose hippie owners have a sweet, sexy son—Ash—complications arise:
Cricket’s future stepsisters make it clear they’re not happy about the marriage. An old friend decides this is the week to declare his love for Cricket. Grandpa chooses to reveal a big secret at a family gathering. Dan’s ex-wife shows up. And even the dogs—Cricket’s old, ill Jupiter and Dan’s young, lively Cruiser—seem to be declaring war.

While Cricket fears that Dan is in danger of becoming ditched husband-to-be number three, she’s also alarmed by her own desires. Because even though her boyfriend looms large in her mind, Ash is right in front of her....
