Sigh...deeply in love with this book (and Austin, Texas).

Perhaps you are not big texter (Really? I don’t believe you.), but I am willing to bet most people can identify with an outrageous LOL time or two after exchanging texts with a BFF or a love interest.  Reader, (I kid you not!) you will adore this lush in dialogue (via text) young adult novel.  Sweet and sappy?  Nope.  Complex and thought provoking?  Sí.  I thought about all the ways life can go wrong when your rents (as in your parents) mess with your ability to pay the rent.  It also made me think about what happens when you don’t tell your parents about a trauma you’ve experienced.  Highly recommended.
