How to Build a House by Dana Reinhardt

October 2, 2008 at 4:46 pm Leave a comment

Harper’s life as she knew and loved it is completely turned upside down when her dad divorces the only mom she’s ever known. Not only that, but her efforts to keep her sexual relationship with her best friend as “casual” as he seems to be able to do is proving nearly impossible and taking a real emotion toll on her. In Harper’s efforts to escape it all, and do some good in the meanwhile, she signs up for a teen summer program out in Tennessee to build a house for a family in need. The summer that she thought would help her escape and be completely alone ends up bringing her into close relationships that could change her life. This is another winner by Dana Reinhardt, proving again that “chick lit” can be fun, light and easy to read while dealing with heavy themes and thought provoking issues at the same time.
