I liked this story a lot. It's about Teddy McAlister,her family and her friend Billy whom she meets in the beginning of the book along with a new stepmother.The book spans about 7 or so years as Teddy grows up.(16 to 23)I thought that Teddy was an original character and I enjoyed reading about her.5 stars.
