Lola Carlyle is lonely, out of sorts, and in for a boring summer. So when her best friend, Sydney, calls to rave about her stay at a posh Malibu rehab and reveals that the love of Lola's life, Wade Miller, is being admitted, she knows what she has to do. Never mind that her worst addiction is decaf cappuccino; Lola is going to rehab.
Lola arrives at Sunrise Rehab intent solely on finding Wade, saving him from himself, and-naturally-making him fall in love with her...only to discover she's actually expected to be an addict. And get treatment. And talk about her issues with her parents, and with herself. Plus she has insane roommates, and an irritatingly attractive mentor, Adam, who's determined to thwart her at every turn.
Oh, and Sydney? She's gone.
Turns out, once her pride, her defenses, and her best friend are stripped away, Lola realizes she's actually got a lot to overcome...if she can open her heart long enough to let it happen.

Gr 7–10—Lola Carlyle's life may seem glamorous (her father is a famous producer, and her mother is a soap-opera star), but it is hard for her to feel glamorous when her best friend is in rehab and her only plans for the summer include spending time with her self-obsessed mother, who is constantly baiting and avoiding the paparazzi. When Lola's friend Sydney calls from Sunset Rehabilitation and tells her that the facility is like a spa and the boy that Lola has crushed over for the past four years just checked in, Lola pretends that she is an alcoholic so that she may join her friend and help save the guy of her dreams. When Lola arrives at Sunset, she is shocked to find that it is not the spa that Sydney described and, even more alarming, Sydney is no longer there. While this is far from a work of serious fiction and is a bit predictable, the simple language and writing style make it a fun, leisurely read. VERDICT For teens who enjoy the writings of Lisi Harrison or Cecily von Ziegesar.—Ellen Fitzgerald, White Oak Library District, Lockport, IL
