The third novel from the authors of The Nanny Diaries is told in two parts: from 2005, when the characters are grown up, and from the past, as the characters make their way through school and college. Often funny, the 1980s perspective rings particularly true and nostalgic for those who grew up in that time. Although it gets a little long toward the end, it's still an engaging portrait of friendship, family and first love.
It took a while for Katie and Jake to become a couple, but once they connected in high school they were practically inseparable, which made Jake's sudden departure to Los Angeles to become a recording star such a shock. Now 30, Katie is determined to find the love of her life and find out why he so suddenly broke her heart -- and why he continues to sing about her in all of his hit songs.
