But when her life collapses, she has no idea how to fix it. She witnesses something that costs her both her mother and Sean, the boy she loves. Her best friend, Claire, tries to smooth things over between them by enlisting them to get up early every morning during summer vacation and run with her. Jill only agrees to support her diabetic friend’s fitness efforts; she can’t even bear to look at Sean.
On hot, lonely summer nights, Jill goes out on her roof to watch the stars. One night she sees a brutal scene happening in the house next door. In an effort to stop it, she tries to throw a can of pop against the house—and instead breaks a window. That’s when she meets Daniel, her new 21-year-old neighbor who has a much worse problem with his mother than Jill has with hers. Daniel is so broken Jill wishes she could fix him, too.
Jill is very inexperienced in dating, yet she has incredible maturity in dealing with Sean and Daniel. She has a strong understanding of what’s right and wrong. Too bad her mother doesn’t have the same ethical standards.
Jill’s mother abandoned the family, and then gets in touch with them again many months later, wanting to take Jill from her father. Then her mother tells her something that must be a lie—but could it be true?
The book takes many twists and turns and things keep getting worse for Jill and for Daniel. Surprisingly, Jill seems to escape major consequences from some of the messes she gets into: backing into Daniel’s mother’s car; indirectly causing a fistfight between Sean and Daniel; ruining the engine of a car she and her dad were fixing up (a present for her); it just seems that she gets off easy without having to deal with insurance companies or giving explanations to her father.
Nevertheless, the writing is well-done; Jill, Sean, Daniel, and Dad are extremely likeable, though they all have serious issues that keep them from being too nice; the two main mothers are decidedly unlikable, though Daniel’s mother has reasons for being the way she is. If I Fix You is definitely worth reading and hard to put down.

And then a new neighbour moves in next door, with his own secrets and problems, and Jill realises that while she doesn't know how to sort out her own life, she might just be able to help Daniel with his.
Highly recommend, especially if you enjoy contemporaries.
