My rating: 3.5 stars
Viviana has always been expected to be good, do well in school, not date, and get in Stanford. But things fall apart when a private photo makes the rounds at her school. Suddenly, her father is gone and Vivi can't seem to pull herself together. Only her friend Sammie has remained constant, but that might change when they both meet Evan.
What happens when too many expectations are put on a person? Can one mistake ruin everything? We're able to learn along with Vivi that expecting to be perfect, and learning that we're not, can have long and harmful effects on a person.
This novel deals with death, illness, unfaithfulness, anxiety, friendship, cyber bullying, and many more topics. Most teens--most people--deal with one or more of these throughout their life. Vivi has to learn how to live with them, in the best possible way, just like we all do.
There is little language and some sexual innuendos.
