Review - All You Get Is Me by Yvonne Prinz (ARC Tour)

Description from goodreads

"A summer of love, loss, and justice.

Things were complicated enough for Roar, even before her father decided to yank her out of the city and go organic. Suddenly, she’s a farm girl, albeit a reluctant one, selling figs at the farmers’ market and developing her photographs in a ramshackle shed. Caught between a troublemaking sidekick named Storm, a brooding, easy-on-the-eyes L.A. boy, and a father on a human rights crusade that challenges the fabric of the farm community, Roar is going to have to tackle it all—even with dirt under her fingernails and her hair pulled back with a rubber band meant for asparagus."

This book grabbed me from the very first chapter and didn't let go! Roar (short for Aurora) is such an interesting and creative character. I enjoyed seeing her grow over the course of the summer and really come into her own. Her relationship with her father changed a lot, and she fell in love for the first time. The setting was richly detailed, and I felt as if I were right there with the characters. I was really drawn in by the legal issues surrounding the plot, and I had to keep reading to find out how the situation would be resolved. 

Fans of contemporary YA will definitely want to check out All You Get Is Me

Thanks to Good Golly Miss Holly ARC Tours for lending me a copy of this book!
