In the sequel to the acclaimed novel, Painting Caitlyn, it's the start of eleventh grade, and Caitlyn is ready to forget about the abusive relationship she was trapped in last year. Since breaking free of Tyler's grip, she can't help but put up a wall to protect herself so she doesn't get hurt that way again. When an opportunity to go on an exchange trip to Quebec arises, Caitlyn wonders if this is her chance for a fresh start.
But soon after her departure, she realizes that the future is so full of uncertainties that old fears and insecurities start to creep back in, and she second-guesses herself at every turn. As she embarks on a new romance, a figure from her past tries to make amends. Can Caitlyn find it within herself to trust again?

"A sweet, satisfying romance...Romance readers will enjoy both the sobering plot lines and the more light-hearted scenes in which Caitlyn consults horoscopes, charms, and stars for guidance." (Booklist 2010-09-01)
"Peters has created in Caitlyn a character that teen readers will empathize with and root for, particularly those who have read Painting Caitlyn. These readers will delight in watching her emerge from the harrowing events of her recent past and test her wings...The likeable characters and authentic situations make it an enjoyable read that will have widespread appeal. Recommended." (CM Magazine 2010-10-01)
"For students who are learning to be confident, they will find that Caitlyn's journey will inspire them—as she becomes empowered within her life she becomes better able to join her life with others. By the end she has built solid relationships with her friends, her boyfriend, her host family but most importantly, herself...Those recovering from a traumatic relationship...can find hope and inspiration in Caitlyn reclaiming her life." (Resource Links 2010-10-01)
"Covers a myriad of plot and characters in its brief pages, and capably balances the attention given to each...Caitlyn is a sympathetic character, and readers will root for her recovery...A quick read with a little angst and a little romance." (VOYA 2010-12-01)
"The language used in this novel is quite simple, but it made Caitlyn extremely realistic. I was able to identify with some of the lessons she learned and many of her quirks and anecdotes...Peters has done an excellent job of incorporating enough French in context so that those who do not know the language can understand her use of it. I would recommend this touching novel to girls 9th grade and older." (Teen Reviewer for VOYA 2011-02-01)
"Caitlyn is a character that girls can relate to; they may not be in an abusive relationship, but questioning oneself and being indecisive will be recognizable. Caitlyn will be a positive and realistic role model for high school girls. Recommended." (Library Media Connection 2011-03-01)
"A very honest and vulnerable Caitlyn is presented who readers will easily empathize with. Painting Caitlyn won many accolades and this sequel (which does not require that the reader has read the first novel) is bound to be as popular as the first." (PSLA Top Forty 2011-06-01)
"Written with such sensitivity that I fell in love with all of the characters. While the main characters are YA who are a combination of teenage angst and immaturity, they are also compelling, entertaining and, in many cases, making informed and mature decisions...This series is smart and a must read." (BookShipper blog 2011-05-17)
