Sometimes finding love means taking the scenic route ... Living with her faultfinding mother has taught Leslie not to ask for much. Just watch your step, stay on the sidelines, and take what you can get. But she wants a mom who thanks her for cleaning the kitchen instead of yelling at her for missing a spot, and a boyfriend who does more than score her a seat at the popular table-someone who actually notices her sitting there. So when Cain, the school heart-breaker, turns his Carolina blue eyes her way, Leslie can't help but be tempted, even if he's her boyfriend's best friend. Things get even more complicated when Leslie strikes up unlikely friendships with Meredith, Cain's girlfriend, and Dennis, a boy addicted to cigarettes and solitude. Despite his tough exterior, Dennis seems to understand Leslie in a way that no one ever has and to need her as much as she needs him. For the first time in her life, Leslie feels like she could belong. She's just not sure where. 

This is a really cute fast read. I enjoyed getting to know Leslie, Meredith, and Dennis and seeing them overcome so much in their young lives. 
 Leslie was a typical teenager, with a mother that was stressed and often took it out on her. Meredith was shown at first to be your typical high school cheerleader, but in reality, she became a very good friend to Leslie. Dennis seemed to be your loner and while I was curious as to why he was that way, I was not left to wonder for long. 
I was pleased with the ending of the story and how you could watch each character grow through the book.
