Jenna Boller is back from her life-altering trip to Texas,
dripping with instant maturity. She’s got a new job as assistant to Madeline
Gladstone, Director of Quality Control for Gladstone Shoes, and a handsome
protégé named Tanner Cobb.
But balancing all these responsibilities with the angst of
junior year and her needy family isn’t easy, especially when she’s uncovering
nefarious dealings at a mysterious shoe factory called Plant 453 and her
protégé happens to be a shoplifter. Jenna finds it difficult to trust Tanner,
although his street smarts might be just what she needs when the going gets
tough. But Jenna’s sense of humor keeps her grounded and helps her understand
maturity is a work-in-progress.
Once again, Joan Bauer has written a sure-footed, funny, and
poignant novel about honesty, self-esteem, the demands of loyalty, and the
redemptive power of sole.
