She has every right to hate me, of course: I broke Patrick Donnelly's heart the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. Now I'm serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college and be done.Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn't finished. I'm expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it's just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. "For what it's worth, Molly Barlow," he says, "I'm really glad you're back."Day 12: Gabe wouldn't quit till he got me to come to this party, and I'm surprised to find I'm actually having fun. I think he's about to kiss me—and that's when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who's supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who's never going to forgive me.

I hated nearly every character in this book. That does not mean I wasn't super invested in finding out how it ended. But .... it just wasn't what I was expecting and I guess it was super frustrating to have no likable characters.

What a terrible book this turned out to be. Molly was a horrible protagonist - selfish, inconsiderate and, ultimately, stupid. She was torn between two brothers, Gabe and Patrick. At first she cheated on Patrick with Gabe then unbelievably, two years later, she cheated on Gabe with Patrick. You would think, after being ostracised by her friends the first time, Molly would learn from her mistakes but no, she had to go and repeat the experience. Why these two brothers wanted her was beyond me. Gabe was such a nice guy, but Patrick was too arrogant for my liking. As for the the ending, there wasn't one. On Day 99 Molly just drove off to university without any resolutions. Absolute rubbish!
