Image of Fixing Delilah

Typical love stories are calculated, the ending is always the same no matter the formula. This is a truly magnificent story not just about love, but about finding yourself. Plot twists abound, as Ockler’s tale is not written with a formula, but from the heart. Filled with surprises, you will not be able to put this book down.

Delilah’s summer is ruined. She’s stuck having to drive from Pennsylvania to Vermont with her controlling mother, just to bury her dead grandmother. Having no communication with her non-boyfriend, she befriends her childhood friend, Patrick, only to find he isn’t a tiny, awkward boy anymore. Plus, no one will tell her why she’s had no contact with her family since childhood. With her mother working 24/7 and not talking about anything except her grandma’s funeral, Delilah ventures out on her own to solve her family’s mysteries.
