"The story of girl meets boy...in rehab.
Madeline is sent away to Spring Meadows to help with a drinking and rage problem she has. It's a pretty intense place, but there is the weekly movie night in town--where Madeline meets Stewart, who's at another rehab place nearby. They fall for each other during a really crazy time in their lives. Madeline gets out and tries to get back on her feet, waiting for Stewart to join her. When he does, though, it's not the ideal recovery world Madeline dreamed of. Both of them still have serious problems. And Stewart's are only getting worse...."

I completely adore books that deal with teens who have problems like Madeline and Stewart. This book had a total bonus since there's some teenage romance in it! I find that books that take place in rehab are so easy to relate to because they're just so real and raw. I'm already having patience issues waiting for this one! I want it now!
