This is a book that all can relate to. Us versus them! Doesn't matter if it is the popular kids versus you or the religious people versus you, or the world against you. All of us have dealt with something like it and it works so well her. Jeannie Waudby was able to depict that well in "One of Us". I found this one to be very thought provoking honestly.

When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program—Owen's Anonymous—and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor...
Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson—a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton.
Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?
This follow-up companion novel to The Avery Shaw Experiment can be read as a stand alone. (But where's the fun in that?) ;)
I enjoyed this book more than I anticipated. I honestly was not thrilled with the character of Libby at all at first. Once I understood her more, then I began to like her. I loved Adam though from the get go. I felt this was the perfect companion to The Avery Experiment. All in all I gave this a solid 4 star rating.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I struggled with a rating for this one. Honestly, I did. The characters at times were overly complex and their struggles seemed blown up. But then I realized that many of us feel so complicated and our struggles are to us. But look at someone else's and it seems easy to figure out. I loved Liam immediately - out of reach yet the only one who one really wants. Cami was out of control at times yet just a teen struggling with balancing her feelings.
I gave this a 5 star rating as it made me root for the underdogs and really contemplate the whole story. I really thought about this long after I finished it.
