The Last Chance Bar and Grill
Coli (short for Nicole) has a famous mother, who showed women around the country that they can be determined to get fit. She's lost weight from the dreaded "fat years", but she still feels alone inside. Her mother is going on a tour to Europe, so Coli is to move to North Carolina for the summer. She ends up landing a job at Last Chance Bar and Grill, were she meets new friends Isabel and Morgan.
The book is heartwarming and can put a smile on anyone?s face (I know it did on mine!). Sarah Dessen, who is the mastermind behind this coming of age novel, portrays teen lifestyles realistically and the dialogue is also most flawed. I recommend this book for anyone- young or old.
