“This book is all about self-discovery, of finding who you truly are and overcoming a past that threatens to drown you”
~ Under the Covers

Even amongst her family, Isabella doesn’t feel like she fits in. While everyone is prancing around, looking perfect Isa would rather spend time in her room, enjoying a manga or working on her latest piece of art. When her parents decide to send her off to stay with her grandma for the summer, Isa doesn’t mind. Maybe being someplace other than here will make her feel better about herself. While she travels from one place to another, her cousins and grandma allow more of Isa’s personality to show. And as that occurs, Isa begins to like herself more.

When she returns home, she’s a changed woman and her neighbor Kai Meyes definitely notices. Having undergone a recent change himself, Kai is intrigued by the differences he sees in Isa and yet, deep down he knows she is the same girl he fell in love with.

The more I read, the more I saw the similarities in Kai and Isa. They’re pretty much mirror images of one another. Neither of them fit into their own families well. They certainly don’t fit into the cliques at school and they like to use humor or sarcasm to keep others at bay.

This book is all about self-discovery, of finding who you truly are and overcoming a past that threatens to drown you. Isa learns something about her family that shocks her and while it hurts, it also sheds more light on their actions and why they treat her the way they do. I liked reading about her journey. You can definitely see how far she’s come from how she is in the first chapter and who she becomes by the last.
