Sometimes just when you think life should hit a nice, long patch of smooth sailing everything turns upside down. That's what happens to 16 year-old Sammie Davis. Her parents separate and she gets hauled into a big, stinky city with just her mom while her dad moves across the country.

Love and Other Four-Letter Words is set in the summer in New York City. Sammie Davis is forced to leave her hometown of Ithaca, New York, leave her best friend (Miss popularity) Kitty and her dad, who moves by himself to California. Sammie and her mom were never all that close and the next thing she knows she's sharing a one-bedroom apartment in the smelly city with her mom and her dog Moxie. Her mom has totally gone to pieces over the separation from Sammie's dad and Sammie finds herself feelin' more like the 'rent than the kid.

Love and Other Four-Letter Words is a cool, honestly written story about dealing with divorce, friendship and romance. Sammie's problems with her best friend, Kitty and her new friendship with the totally cool and unique Phoebe (who thinks all peeps have a dog-equivalent) are things anyone can relate to. Same with her stress over a rekindled, old friendship with her mom's friend's son, Eli. Did we mention Eli has turned into a little hottie since the last time Sammie saw him?

This book has a lot going for it so take it to the beach or on your next camping trip and be prepared to laugh and cry. It's great!
