Heart attacks happen to other people #thingsIthoughtweretrue
When Morgan's mom gets sick, it's hard not to panic. Without her mother, she would have no one—until she finds out the dad who walked out on her as a baby isn't as far away as she thought...
Adam is a stuck-up, uptight jerk #thingsIthoughtweretrue
Now that they have a summer job together, Morgan's getting to know the real Adam, and he's actually pretty a nerdy-hot kind of way. He even offers to go with her to find her dad. Road trip, anyone?
5000 Twitter followers are all the friends I need #thingsIthoughtweretrue
With Adam in the back seat, a hyper chatterbox named Amy behind the wheel, and plenty of Cheetos to fuel their trip, Morgan feels ready for anything. She's not expecting a flat tire, a missed ferry, a fake girlfriend...and that these two people she barely knew before the summer started will become the people she can't imagine living without.

This was my first with this author.I really enjoyed this one. It was a short, fun read.

This tells the story of Morgan. Her mom suddenly becomes sick. She finally tells Morgan her fathers name. Amy and Adamn decide to accompany Morgan on a road trip to meet her father for the first time. As they band together, Morgan realizes all she's been missing out on,

This had some pretty amazing characters. Morgan took some getting ti know. Once you get used to her, shes very enjoyable. I loved seeing her grow as a person.Facing her past wasn't easy but she never gave up. Amy was honestly the best part of the story. I loved how comfortable she was with herself. She didn't care what anyone thought about her. She had a rocking personality. I loved Adam. He was the brains of the group. I loved how sweet he was. He too had a rocking personality. I loved seeing these guys bang together!

This book has a lot going on. It was a tad all over the place. But it kept my attention easily. It was difficult to put down. It was nice and short. I loved the road trip. I loved the Twitter aspect. I loved all the family aspects also. There was a nice humor to the storyline. It still had its serious moments though. I thought it had a nice balance between serious and humor. Overall I really enjoyed this story! It was very well written. I can't wait to see more from this author!
