I really love Mackler's writing and would recommend her books to any female teen readers.

This book looks at the ways in which V shakes up her aunt Mara's (who is only slightly older than her)world when she comes to live with her. Mara has been the image of perfection but V makes helps her see there is a little more to life than being perfect...

I love Carolyn Mackler's work and I thought I would read this book. I loved it. The big surprise at the beginning is that Mara and Vivian are so close in age, and that they're total opposites, but they realize that they aren't so different in the end. You really see Vivian's personality change throughout the book, which I found interesting. And Mara became a bit more fearless, which was nice. Amazing book :)

This book is very interesting in many ways. Its full of different emotions, like one time its sad, than anger, than happiness. Its a special book. When I started reading this book it started out a bit boring but than I kept with the book and it just got interesting and interesting. :D

Mara Valentine is in control. She's a straight-A senior, a vegan, and her parents' pride and joy. She's neck-and-neck with her womanizing ex-boyfriend for number-one class ranking and plans to kick his salutatorian butt on her way out the door to Yale. Mara has her remaining months in Brockport all planned out, but the plan does not include having V, her slutty, pot-smoking, sixteen-year-old niece -- yes, niece -- come to live with her family. Nor does it involve lusting after her boss or dreaming about grilled cheese sandwiches every night. What does a control freak like Mara do when things start spinning wildly out of control? With insight, authenticity, and a healthy dose of humor, Carolyn Mackler creates an evolving Type A heroine that every reader will recognize -- and root for. From the author of the award-winning The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things comes the racy story of an overachiever who learns to get over it -- and get a life.
