Darcy Covington never had to worry about money or where her next
shopping spree was coming from. Even her dog ate gourmet. Then one day,
Darcy’s car is repossessed from the parking lot of her elite private
school. As her father’s business hit the skids, Dad didn’t just skip town, he bailed on his family.
Fortunately, Darcy’s uncle owns a
thrift shop where she can hide out from the world. There’s also Lucas,
the wickedly hot fix-it guy she can’t stop crushing on, even if she’s
not sure they’ll ever get out of the friend zone.
But it’s here
among the colorful characters of her uncle’s world that Darcy begins to
see something more in herself...if she has the courage to follow it.
My Thoughts on the Book
This book was just generic for me. Girl is rich and then poor. She meets a guy and finds the strength to persevere. It wasn't that original or mind blowing. Maybe I feel this way because I couldn't connect with the characters or because the plot felt played out. I'm not sure. Maybe I just wasn't interested because Darcy is still in high school; I honestly don't know. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't amazing either. Judge it for yourself.
