When Alice's mother died from cancer it was just her and her father... until he remarried. Now, as he and his new wife welcome a baby into their home Alice feels more alone than ever. With only her music, her best friend and her boyfriend for comfort she starts pulling away from her family and spending more time away from her home. But when she ends up stuck in a snowstorm with her stepmom and stepsister she's forced to face her feelings about them.
What I love most about this book is that it is a verse novel. While they're different to read I feel like they can draw you into the emotions of the characters more because of their unique style. They also make for quick, enjoyable reads. Also recommended is Lisa Schroeder's other YA verse novel I Heart You, You Haunt Me.
