Amelia’s younger sister, Charlotte, better known as Charly, always gets into trouble. But everybody loves her anyway. She’s a crazy and colourful character whose shenanigans tend to be nothing more than pure mischief on her part. Being the elder sister in a household with their father and grandmother means Amelia takes care of her younger sister and also covers for her, so she doesn’t get into too much trouble.
Rose is back, a year older, a sophomore, with a slight bit more mature voice, and a whole lot more problems than when readers first got to know her in Confessions of an Angry Girl. She needs to decide for herself what to do with Jamie. She still has the cheerleaders on her case. She and her brother are not exactly talking to each other either. She also hasn’t stopped missing her dad who died in Iraq the previous year. In the very least, she has her best friend back by her side.
