Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she's stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF's gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client).

When Tatum discovers she's not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela/fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

A modern play on the Cinderella story arc, IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE shows us that sometimes going after what you want means breaking the rules.

IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE will appeal to fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jennifer E. Smith.

My thoughts: (reviewed by Jenna) IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE is really fun. It is about this teenager who got busted for being a getaway driver for her friend and her creepy boyfriend, but she didn't even know about the crime. It is a really really good book. 

Written in first person, IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE immediately puts me in the main characters point of view. I really identified with her and felt how scared she must've been and how bored she was under house arrest. 

This is a great book for teens and tweens. Recommended. 

This is not a Christian book, but it was a clean read.

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
