Scarlett Hughes is overly involved in the lives of everyone around her, especially her neighbors, including: a young goth girl who chalks her very traditional wishes on the sidewalk; a forgetful mailman; and an older couple whose main excitement in their lives are the formal-sounding scam emails from foreign lands promising large sums of money.
But when Scarlett's sister, Juliet, returns home from school - pregnant and surprisingly married to a sweet, handsome boy who she seems to have no interest in, but who is hopelessly in love with her - Scarlett is thrust solidly into her own life and forced to take a look inward for the first time.
The Six Rules of Maybe is about the necessity of dreams, as well as the necessity of facing reality and speaking the truth.

"Reminiscent of the best of Sarah Dessen's work, this novel is beautifully written, deftly plotted, and movingly characterized." (School Library Journal)
NO. Only the main characters were given normal voices; everyone else sounded like a cartoon version of a teenage girl, a nerd, or a dumb dude. It made it practically unlistenable and really effected how I enjoyed the book.
I really don't know if I would have like the story with a different reader, but as a whole, I've liked Deb Caletti's books (Stay, in particular, is great). But the reader of this book really made it hard to enjoy listening. Try another Deb Caletti book with a different reader!
