Ramona’s life seems to be in tatters. She, her sister and her dad live in a trailer that they barely fit in. Ramona and her family are hardly getting by with their money. Ramona’s girlfriend is leaving and breaking up with her and Hattie, Ramona’s sister, is going to have a baby. On top of all that the father of her sister’s baby is living with them in their trailer.
Ramona thinks that her life is a set course. She’ll always stay in her little town, always be helping Hattie and her father get by, and her dream of swimming competitively is definitively out of the question. That is until her childhood friend Freddie comes along. He’s a welcome distraction from the stresses of her daily life. With Freddie, Ramona feels like she can be herself and not have to worry about the rest of the world.
Ramona’s perspective on her life shifts as she and Freddie become closer friends. Maybe she can have a life outside of her little town. I would recommend this to book to anyone who likes a good story about possibilities.
