My Movie Monday

(Kelly King)Whitley Johnson's dream summer with her divorcé dad has turned into a nightmare. She's just met his new fiancée and her kids. The fiancée's son? Whitley's one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin' great.

Worse, she totally doesn't fit in with her dad's perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (Ed Westwick) (even though Whitley swears she doesn't "do" friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn't her (Robert Adamson) least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger's most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about.
Whitley, who hates to be called Whit, might have a drinking problem. She gets tangled up in all sorts of situations at parties. She's never had real parenting until her soon to be step-mother comes along. Is it too late for a girl like Whitley?
Someone finally reaches out to Whitley, figuring her out at a party. Yet, Harrison would love to have a romance with Nathan, Whit's soon to be step-brother.
based on Kody Keplinger's novel.
