Sunny, like she chooses to be called, is a selfish teenager that acts without remorse, she hurts the ones who love her the most just to get her own way, but this time she went too far and it becomes quite clear to her that all the lies she manufactured created a vacuum of hate and distrust. While she wanted others to change, she soon realized it must first come from within her, that lying changes nothing and only turns you into a dishonest human being who no one wants to hang around with. So all the lies she told and hurt she did to her mum, grandmother and her friends, she still was not prepared for the fallout from such selfish actions. It brought to light some misconceptions and half truths. The fundamentals of this story is plain and simple, lying is bad it creates chaos and confusion,so yes Sunny had some hard lessons to learned.


Sunny Beringer hates her first name—her real first name—Sunflower. And she hates that her mom has suddenly left behind her dad, Scott, and uprooted their family miles away from New Jersey to North Carolina just so she can pursue some fancy degree. Sunny has to live with a grandmother she barely knows, and she’s had to leave her beloved cat and all her friends behind. And no one else seems to think anything is wrong.

So she creates “Sunny Beringer’s Totally Awesome Plan for Romance”—a list of sure-fire ways to make her mom and Scott fall madly in love again, including:

Send Mom flowers from a “Secret Admirer” to make Scott jealous and make him regret letting them move so far away.
Make a playlist of Scott’s favorite love songs—the mushier the better—and make sure it’s always playing in the car.
Ask them about the good old days when they first fell in love.
But while working on a photo album guaranteed to make Mom change her mind and rush them right back home, Sunny discovers a photo—one that changes everything.

Sunny’s family, the people she thought she could trust most in the world, have been keeping an enormous secret from her. And she’ll have to reconcile her family’s past and present, or she’ll lose everything about their future.
