Brilliance, brilliance, brilliance. I'm floored, really.
What really gets me about this is how /there/ it is. You leave everything where we can see it, right there on the table. You don't hide anything from the reader except what the characters hide from each other.
I grinned when I read the first sentence, simply because it's such an anti-childhood way to look at life. Lilly may not be done with college yet, but she's had to do a lot of growing up since being away from her crazy friends. She can't spontaneously dress up as Lola and go to wild parties. She's got a job, she's got school, and she's bored out of her mind.
I literally had a giggling fit when she got the call from Jackson. So unexpected, but also not. Even with Lilly more than five thousand miles away, Jackson's first thought is to call her, because she knows Miley better than anyone. (Also, her almost creepy knowledge of where the shoes ended up had me howling with laughter-despite the fact that I knew she'd know.)
Lilly's thirst for adventure and the disastrous results are reassuring, in a sense. Some things never change and I'm glad to see that this applies to Lilly.
Jackson's concern really warmed my heart here, the way he took care of Lilly (even if he was hiding behind the pretense that his sister made him do it). Again, the dynamic was fun and interesting and as natural as breathing. They're themselves when they interact, they don't have to hide behind sugary words. I love the careful hints you throw in that Jackson cares for her as something more than his little sister's best friend-he knows what her favorite pizza place is and has the pizza ready for her when she gets home, not knowing what he's going to be dealing with from the girl herself. He carries her to the couch instead of letting her hobble her way over on her own and he acts a little oddly for her comment on getting dressed on her own.
I love the backstory you put into Jackson's most recent failed relationship-you're not one to let the details go. It provides a solid story for the events about to happen and I'm glad to see it there. Miley's concern makes me-grudgingly-admit some fondness for her character, if only in the incarnation in this story. Lilly's less-than-polite entrance into Jackson's apartment makes me smile: she knows him well enough that she doesn't care about manners and she also knows where he put the spare key. Her break-up kit is adorable at least and ingenious at best (I fully plan on using it on the next male friend I have who gets broken up with) and the creme de la creme: she did it without Miley's insistence. :)
The end? Phew! I positively loved it. :D It's really sweet to see them finally giving in. Also, the bit with Robbie and Miley at the end was adorable. ;) Loved seeing the two of them interact. Question: was Miley's call to Oliver an offer to help in his love life or her trying to /be/ his love life? Just wondering. ;)
All in all... I loved it. :D

This was cute. I really like how you had Jackson and Lily get together. It was cool how you did that. The thing with Miley in the end was funny, and I like how Robbie Ray reacted.
