Publisher Description

From the author of Twenty Boy Summer, a teen pushes the limits to follow her dreams—and learns there’s a fine line between bitter and sweet....

Once upon a time, Hudson knew exactly what her future looked like. Then a betrayal changed her life and knocked her dreams to the ground. Now she’s a girl who doesn’t believe in second chances, a girl who stays under the radar by baking cupcakes at her mom’s diner and obsessing over what might have been.
     So when things start looking up and she has another shot at her dreams, Hudson is equal parts hopeful and terrified. Of course, this is also the moment a cute, sweet guy walks into her life—and starts serving up some seriously mixed signals. She’s got a lot on her plate, and for a girl who’s been burned before, risking it all is easier said than done.
     It’s time for Hudson to ask herself what she really wants, and how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get it. Because in a place where opportunities are fleeting, she knows this chance may very well be her last....

Beautiful writing but just wasn't for me.

I loved Twenty Boy Summer & Fixing Delilah, so I couldn't wait to read Sarah Ockler's next book. This one was a let down for me, though. The writing was beautiful, as always, which is why I gave it three stars. Sarah is brilliant when it comes to her way with words. For me, this book was tough to get through, and I ended up skimming most of the ending. The whole ice skating/hockey thing was too foreign for me, and I felt lost during a lot of it. I didn't relate to Hudson either, as much as I tried. I think I'm probably in the minority, though, and I could see a lot of people loving to curl up on a winter day with this one. I'll be looking forward to Sarah's next book, still!
