Keeping the Moon Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fifteen-year-old Colie is spending the summer with her eccentric Aunt Mira while her mother travels. Formerly chubby and still insecure, Colie has built a shell around herself. But her summer with her aunt, her aunt's tenant Norman, and her friends at the Last Chance Diner&150 teaches her some important lessons about friendship and learning to love yourself.

A cute, fairly predictable read. Sarah Dessen's work definitely improves with the years as this was one of her early novels. Some of the teen language "like" and such was a bit annoying at times. However, enjoyed seeing the growth of Colie and how she changes and gains courage to be proud of who she is.
