Review: What's worse than getting dumped? Not even knowing you've been dumped! Joy got no good-bye, and certainly no explanation when Zan - the love of her life and the only good thing about stifling, backward Haven, Utah - unceremoniously and unexpectedly left for college a year early. Joy needs closure almost as much as she needs Zan, so she heads for California and Zan, riding shotgun beside Zan's former-best-friend Noah. A fun and insightful read for any high school girl!
