Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler

Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have a tendency to fall apart. She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. Her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition. Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?

Yet again, Sarah Ockler’s book doesn’t cease to amaze me. Before I started reading Fixing Delilah, I didn’t think it could surpass my love of Sarah’s previous book; Twenty Boy Summer. I loved Delilah’s story. It was realistic, addiction, and just plain magical. Patrick as such an adorable male character. He makes you want to jump in the book and get to know him and listen to his music. I like how Delilah is such a strong main character, she is strong throughout all of the Hannaford drama. Not only is the writing awesome, but when reading, you feel the characters emotions.
Sarah Ockler is, and will always be an author to look out for. Fixing Delilah and Twenty Boy Summer both are about amazing things and are wonderfully addicting. I recommend her books to anyone.

Reading Fixing Delilah jogged my memory of watching a slow summer film. Or sitting out on the back porch in the heat drinking a chilled glass of lemonade.
