Summary (cr: goodreads)

"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, messy, affectionate. And every day from her rooftop perch, Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs up next to her and changes everything.

As the two fall fiercely for each other, stumbling through the awkwardness and awesomeness of first love, Jase's family embraces Samantha - even as she keeps him a secret from her own. Then something unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha's world. She's suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A transporting debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another. 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Judging someone by how they want to live their life may be downright rude. And this is what Samantha has to live with. She has a mother who who hates their next door neighbor for no one knows why and a sister who is so free-spirited leaving their mother to be uptight to her and she had to live with that for years. But she had a secret. She used to follow the Garrett family like a movie on the side. Not until a Garrett talked to her, that's when everything changed. I liked the way she stood up for herself and tried to get to know her next door neighbors even behind her mother's back. What really annoyed me the most is Clay....definitely Clay.

Till the next read...
