The book is 90% about a girl dealing with her parents getting remarried. The second to last chapter she has a heart to heart with her mother, and everything she's been dealing with comes busting out. Lizzy thinks she has to be perfect and neither parent talks to her about the issues. Theres alot changing in her life: mom getting remarried because she wants kids, new stepmom is pregnant. The adults make an attempt to talk to her but no one follows thru. ANY adult that accepts "fine" as an answer should not be allowed to have kids imho. "Fine" means alot of things, it rarely means everything's is fine. Not enough redemption at the end for me.
