The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti

Summary: (from back of book) Scarlet spend most of her time worrying about other people. Some are her friends, others are practically strangers, and then there are the ones no one else even notices. Trying to fix their lives comes naturally to her. And pushing her own needs to the side is part of the deal. So when her older sister comes home unexpectedly married and pregnant, Scarlet has a new person to worry about. But all of her good intentions are shattered when the unthinkable happens: she falls for her sister's husband. for the first time in a long time, Scarlet's not fixing a problem, she's at the center of one. And ignoring her feelings doesn't seem to be an option.
Review: This book is a sweet story about hope and love. I liked that there was more to the story than a typical teenage romance. I also enjoyed the many subplots that were scattered throughout the book, such as the Martinelli's, Kevin, Dean and Clive Weaver. All holding on to there own hopes and dreams. All of this together made for a really great read. I like the way the title ties in to the story as well. I was really able to relate to Scarlet's life in many aspects, which made me really connect with her as a character. I was annoyed with Juliet several times throughtout the book and some points thought she should just make her mind up already. But Hayden was my favorite character by far. He is so sweet and caring but at the same time he is hurt and afraid. He is so awesome. Despite what the summary might want you to believe, this book is not an all out romance. There are many characters in the story who are discovering what love and hope mean to them and it's not entirely focused on Scarlet's crush. overall, i liked this book and I am looking forward to readiing more of Caletti's work.
