Sydney is one of those girls who everyone has high expectations for. She lives a nice life, and goes to a nice private school. However, she soon starts going to parties because her best friend, Natalia's boyfriend is always going, which results in her meeting Tommy. After sneaking away to Natalia's families cabin with Tommy, Natalia, and Natalia's boyfriend, she comes back and soon realizes that she is pregnant. It doesn't feel real to her yet, she doesn't feel anything changing inside her and she isn't having any cravings, plus, her stomach is still flat, she really can't be pregnant, can she? She tells herself these things, but deep down, she knows that she got herself into some big trouble and is going to have to figure out a way to make it better. On top of all this, her and Natalia got caught "borrowing" Natalia's moms car and going to a party, and are in big trouble with their parents. As punishment, their parent's send them of to a camp in Canada where they will be canoeing for weeks. Sydney looks forward to not having to worry about her current situation, and while on her trip she grows and becomes a better person, and has to make some hard choices along the way.

This book was - amazing. I read it from start to finish in one day, and that is uncommon for me! The characters are believable and very well written in the book. Between Mick, the bad guy, that everyone begins to learn really does have a sweet side, to the counselor who never talks, there is such a variety in personalities, it really makes it all the more interesting. I found myself really hoping for Sydney to make the right decisions throughout the book, though it was hard for her with pressure from Natalia. This book was very well written and I am really looking forward to reading more from Nina!

I like the name Mick... and wow, this one sounds so much different from what I'd think from the cover. Sounds good!!
