23 Final thoughts Date: Thu, 15 Sep :34: (PDT) From: "Amanda Subject: Hi I loved your book To: My name is Amanda!!! I am 15 years old and I have just finished reading your book "Things Change". It has been the most inspiring thing that I have read in my life!!! See normally I do not enjoy reading but, this book just captured me and sucked me in!!! I have never finished a whole book, but this one I read it in two days flat!!! I have never read a book that related so well to teens today. You were so real when you wrote this book I was shocked to find that this was your first book dedicated to teens!!! I only wish that you write more!!! The girl Johanna was so strong it only made feel good about my self!!! I could relate to every single thing in the book and it can only show to others that real things can happen to real people!!! And you told it like it was in the book..... I just wrote to tell you that you are now my favorite author!!! And I HOPE that you write many more teen books because I can guarantee you I will the first to get one!!!

Once she forces Dani to see through Reids deception, they take off on a revenge-injected road trip that starts with a stolen car and ends with some harsh truths.
