They say when life throws you lemons to make lemonade, but when Ally finds herself in the biggest pickle of her life—stranded on an island in the middle of a lake, fruit and veggies are the least of her worries. Now she’ll have to face the harsh realities of her selfish choices, which means dealing with what happened between her parents so many years ago.
As a child of divorced parents, I understood many of her struggles. The need to act out in order to get the attention that is so strongly craved. And that's what this is about. The repercussions that happen after things get beyond ones control.
Although, this story was fairly tame in comparison to actual experiences I've seen. It isn't one to be taken lightly. I think it was done well, and I would recommend. Especially for parents of divorced children, if only to show them that divorce doesn't just affect them.
