Grace is still lovable, and mostly opposite of me, but she also learns to stand up for herself in regards to her parents. Sam is still drool worthy (by his physical description, his love, and big bonus he is a musician). Although he is one for ignoring issues that he really should face.

Also, I wish that Isabel and Cole's POV was more distinctive. They have their own personalities, but often, because it is written from 1st person, I get very confused as to who is talking. And, what a cliffie-- I have such a bittersweet relationship with series, because I am left with this longing----
