Fixing Delilah by Sarah OcklerMy rating: 2 of 5 stars
I realize I'm in the minority here - and this is probably a review-proof book for fans of Sarah Dessen - but this just didn't do it for me.
Delilah's family life was relatively typical: single, overworked parent and child who is somewhat rebellious and angry. Her "boyfriend" isn't more than a passing phase in her life. Then the news comes that Mom/Gran has died and off they go to New Hampshire and Big Family Revelations and Reconciliations. This was one closed family, with Secrets and Things Not Spoken About and Arguments Never Explained. But beyond that, it was a normal family. Finding Patrick, learning the truth about her family and growing closer to her mother didn't seem to be all the unusual, or even presented differently than other books in this genre.
However, as I said, if you love Sarah Dessen or Jodi Picault, this is definitely the book for you.
