Rating 7/10

Andie has had everything mapped out and preplanned and rehearsed in her life so there would be no surprises nor changes in plans. She usually is very organized to the point she had her summer planned. She would go to work as an intern hopefully. When plans fall through Andie had to make alternative plans, meaning she has to resort to being a dog walker. She meets Clark, an older teenager, who unexpectedly transforms her life and perspective.

I was all right with this novel. Was not my favorite but it was somewhat good. The growing romance between Andie and Clark was cute at least and the father daughter relationship evolved into a deeper connection. My favorite character would have to be Clark for his mysterious and social awkwardness personality was intriguing and relatable. The mere fact that he got her to do things she had never done before nor considered doing.
