Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen


This was a cute story, it moved along quickly. Auden decides to spend the summer with her father and his new family. She discovers her stepmother isn't as bad as she thought, but her Dad is just as clueless. While she has always been focused on her studies she ends up on a quest to experience the life she missed out while studying. Eli is a boy she happens upon in the middle of the night and he decides to help her experience what she has been missing, while he is recovering from his own painful past.

The summer proves to be a learning experience for the whole family, and she figures out just how to live!
