Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Sydney is 16 years old, and her brother, Peyton, is serving time for driving drunk and paralyzing a boy in a car accident. She moves to a new school in order to break free from all of the baggage that comes with being Peyton's sister. She meets some new friends, and a new family that embraces her and gives her the gentle and compassionate care that she needs to find her way again. Plus, there is a pizza! (The family owns a pizza restaurant.)
If you haven't given Young Adult books a chance, I encourage you to read something by Sarah Dessen. Her characters have depth and I love the creative details she includes.
PS: This falls under "a book by a favorite author" for the Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge.
