Grace has hopes and dreams as many high school students. She wishes to play the beloved piano at Carnegie Hall, to quit moving when her mother gets a whim, and for her mother to quit drinking. Grace has had to help her mother out of many situations in which she should not have had to deal and yet she still does not want to leave her mother as there would be no one there to give her help. Eva lost her mother and now lives with a guardian. She also has wishes and dreams but her tragic circumstances have stymied those dreams. Grace likes boys and girls, Eva likes girls. Both are hoping their wishes will come true. There were some explicit scenes which may cause problems for some readers.

This book made me a little angry on behalf of our protagonist, which is a good thing for the book itself. I loved that it was a little more sex-positive (or more sex-neutral) and that Grace had a support system, even if it didn't originate with her mother. The characters also just made sense and sometimes that's hard to come by. I may not have liked Grace's mother, but there was no denying that we knew where she was coming from. Grace's actions felt that way as well. Sometimes she was destructive, but the author made sure we understood that those actions made sense for the character.

Excellent read! The characters were all very well-developed and realistic, and I was very invested in wanting them to be ok.
