Eliana has lived all over. It comes with the territory when your dad's in the military. When her dad gets deployed for a year, Eliana and her mother go to live with her grandparents in Oregon. After putting up a slight fuss, Eliana goes along to Oregon, even if she does miss California. She doesn't want to make any ties to the people in Myrtle Creek since she'll only be there for a year. Unfortunately, some of the people in Myrtle Creek want to be more than a passing acquaintance.
This book was a wonderful balance of teenage drama and feelings mixed with adult and responsible decisions. I liked how Eliana knew her own mind and had her own morals rather than going along with the idea of what could happen. Especially at prom. Lucas was ever the gentleman and perfect in so many ways. Casey was a bubbly fount of entertainment. I can't wait to read the sequel DUO when it's released later this year.
