That summer is when Haven comes to terms with her beautiful sister marrying the dull boyfriend, her father marrying the beautiful TV weather girl and her mother dealing with divorce by becoming much more independent. Some interesting opportunities for exploring relationships, some serious thinking? No. Haven is just another teenage narrator having a hard time but coming through and learning very little. The book ends with the sister's wedding as if it were a triumph of human love with Haven believing that everything is all right, and the author asking us to believe in her new found wisdom as Haven concludes from it all... 'The first boy was always the hardest.'
