My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, messy, affectionate. And every day from her rooftop perch, Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs up next to her and changes everything.

As the two fall fiercely for each other, stumbling through the awkwardness and awesomeness of first love, Jase's family embraces Samantha - even as she keeps him a secret from her own. Then something unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha's world. She's suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A transporting debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another. @goodreads 

I will be a son of a biscuit eater!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was supposed to be my cute little fluffy book!

Okay, I will admit I loved, loved, loved the beginning of the book and pretty much to the half way mark. I love Sam and Jase so much and I absolutely adore Jase's big family of 10. 8 kids, 2 parents and another on the way.

Sam's sister was okay. I hated Sam's mom and her moms young boyfriend, Clay that is helping her on her campaign on becoming a senator.

I hated Sam's best friend Nan and I loathed Nan's brother Tim. Although, he did get better toward the end.

Everything was going so good and fun and then there was too much Tim, some horrible stupid thing Sam's mom does < - - and they all sit around like we should just ignore it. ARE YOU FOR REAL PEOPLE.

It was like, who do I want to smack first!

Anyway, the ending sort of sucked because I wanted a big ole thing and it didn't happen. I mean it was nice but just gahhhhhhh!

Oh well, I could just read the first half of the story a bunch of times :-D
