Lock And Key by Sarah Dressen.
Read my review of The Truth About Forever.
Through it all she has made some friends and is at peace with her sister.Are things looking up?
Romance:Nate and Macy go through a just friends phase then start dating.There was one scene in which he took off her jacket and was going to take off her sweater.She had a t-shirt on underneath... I think. Two make out scenes that were not detailed.Some small kisses.Her sister, Cora, is married.And she can't get a baby.
Language:S**t, they use God's name in vain several time and a couple others.
Violence:Nate's dad yells and hits him.Macy and Cora's mom hit them sometimes.
Other:She gets drunk, but realizes it was a mistake.She smoked pot.There were some memories in which people drank or smoked.And a memory of her mom bringing her boyfriend home and another boyfriend eyeballing Macy.
What I Thought:In one word? Reborn. Macy came from a bad life and now she has a new and better one.She is adjusting and changing.I think that is great, but it did have some tough stuff.A bit depressing. Not as quirky characters :(
Rating & Age:3 stars.14/15 up.
