Fixing Delilah By Sarah Ockler

Summary:(from back of book) Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have tendency to fall apart. She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition. Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complete bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced back together again?
Review: I really liked this book. The premise was interesting and suspenseful. The plot twists were very surprising and kept the story going. Some aspects of the ending were a little bit predictable, but I still really enjoyed it. Delilah and her family were very realistic characters. Patrick is also a really cool character. I wish there was going to be a sequel so i could find out what happened to these chaaracters after this book ended.  The emotions were very nicely portrayed and it made the story and characters relate able and believable. I love character driven stories that make me think about the world. This is a story about, love, loss and hope that will resonate with readers long after they finsih reading. Anyone who likes a good family story will enjoy this one.
