These are the saddest books ever, but I love Martha's determination.

I would give you the synopsis of the book but it is pretty self explanatory from the cover and title, which I love. Adorable high-school girl with funky fashion-sense who chooses to differentiate herself from her fellow school mate clones is reunited with past and now again current neighbor boy with whom she shares a rocky but emotionally charged past. She has to sort through these feelings while also navigating her relationship with her current much older rocker boyfriend, and very loveable and concerned same-sex parents in a lovely San Francisco neighborhood. It was compelling, but completely uncomplicated fun. If this is your thing, pick it up :)
This was the final book in the False Prince trilogy. I got hooked on these books when my youngest daughter read the first one and came to me exclaiming, "You HAVE to read this book. I need someone to talk about it with!!" Poor Jaron has been through so much, and each book has kept me on the edge of my seat. You don't say that with many juvenile books but this was an outstanding series.
