Ockler writers YA contemp, my fav, and I love how her characters are so…normal. Even when they’re going through major issues, they do things that real people would do, like throwing a temper tantrum (ceramic cow, anyone?) or saying things they wish they could later take back.
But they’re also thoughtful and funny and I love the bonds and relationships, especially the mother/daughter dynamic in FD.
And Little Ricky, aka Patrick, WOW, if I was a teenage girl, I’d be in love.
Can’t wait for the next book!
