Summary :

Olivia Martin, the twenty-one-year-old narrator, drinks, swears, drives fast cars, and is, as she would put it, most definitely not a warm and fuzzy kind of person. And why should she be? She has an unpleasant rich father and an annoyingly clingy mother. The only good thing about Olivia's life right now is that she?s escaped to college.

The sudden news that her father and his second wife are killed in a car crash stuns Olivia, but then she gets hit with even more shocking news-they've named her guardian of her three-year-old half-sister Celia.

The girl who only wanted freedom and solitude becomes the head of a household. Through all the expected pitfalls and surprising joys of learning to care for a young child, Olivia never loses her acid tongue or her sense of humor.

Written in strong, humorous prose, Same As It Never Was captures the privileged world of the west side of Los Angeles and the triumphant joy of sacrificing freedom for the love of your family and a future with the right guy.
