Publisher's Summary

Despite - or perhaps because of - her fancy car, private school education, and life of privilege, Lola Renaldi has become a volunteer junkie. Feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, visiting the elderly - if it's a good cause, she's done it. 

Lola's favorite stint, building affordable houses, puts her directly in the path of Rodney. He refuses to discuss why he's doing community service, but it's clear he's hiding something dark about his past. As their friendship grows, Lola begins to question the true reasons for her obsessive volunteerism and her view of those she has pledged to help.

She is only beginning to understand how lucky she truly is when her life falls apart. After losing friends, her boyfriend, even Rodney, Lola finally recognizes which parts of her life she wants to hang on to and what specifically she wants to go after. But with all she's been through, will she be able to hang on to who she wants to be? Or will she lose all that defines her?

I Am Me

Although I am a not the target audience for this story, I did enjoy it. It's sweet and enjoyable coming of age story, without being overly simple. I must admit that I didn't like the character of Lola much at first but I definitely warmed to her throughout the novel. Rod and Lola's relationship was lovely and I really loved the ending. This book was given to me free of charge in exchange for a review.
