Castles On The Sand/E.M. Tippetts
"Madison Lukas knows her place in the world. She's not pretty, not interesting, and therefore easy to forget. John Britton is serving his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has been praying for fifteen years to find the sister he lost in his parents' divorce. She is beautiful, talented, and makes kindness a fine art.
When John and Madison cross paths, he recognizes her at once, but Madison is certain that he's got it all wrong. Even if she is his long-lost sister, she can't possibly be the exceptional, amazing girl he thinks she is, can she?"
So Madison has to deal with High School and all the drama that goes with it. Her best friend Kailie I found to be a bit crazy, but who doesn't have one or more friends like that? Being a good friend Madison sticks by Kailie no matter what predicament she finds herself in. Madison is faced with lots of peer pressure, but to me handles it well. Her long lost brother shows up whom she didn't even know existed, and finds out she has two other older brothers as well.
John helps Madison realize how special she really is when those around her make her feel useless, when the truth is, she is always there for everyone but herself. John is an angel sent to her and will not give up trying to make his little sister realize what a wonderful and beautiful person she is.
She also has 3 different guy's in her life. There's JP, Carson, and Alex. They all bring something different and I truly believe she ends up with the right guy!
Another great book from Emily! She always brings something new with each book she writes. I cant wait to see what the next one will bring!
