Elvira’s family has never been the warm, fuzzy type. Most of the time, Elvira can’t stand the sight of her little sister, Kerrie. Elvira and her mother, Mel, fight more often than not. Mel hasn’t spoken to her own family in years. And when Mel announces she’s pregnant again, Elvira’s daddy storms off to Las Vegas to enter an Elvis impersonator competition. But when an urgent phone call sends Elivra, Mel, and Kerrie on an unexpected trip to visit Mel’s family, Elvira discovers that love doesn’t always look like it does in television commercials–it can be as simple as a bucket of blueberries, an attic full of memories, or a song. But it’s there all right. You just have to know how to look for it.

Perfect for tween readers because of a teen protagonist combined with absolutely no kissing or sexuality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love Me Tender by Audrey Couloumbis While it was an entertaining read, I feel that it fell short of living up to the jacket blurb. I'm not really sure what the conflict was, how it was resolved or how the characters grew. But I am glad that I read it and would still recommend it if you want a fast, entertaining read.
