Fifteen-year-old Rae Maddox’s mom, Gina, is a big fan of fresh starts. Gina thinks of them as an adventure, but for Rae, each move is just one more friend lost, one more chance to feel like an outsider. After arriving in Wisconsin, Gina promises to stay put until Rae graduates. Cautiously optimistic, she wades into the social whirl at Whitman High School, making a few friends and even earning a chance at love. But when the vice principal pairs her with fellow newbie Allison Daly, Rae’s tentative happiness is jeopardized.

It seems Allison was orphaned after her parents died in a suspicious house fire, leaving their daughter to bounce between relatives’ homes. When a sleepover at Rae’s house goes terribly wrong, Rae sees a troubling side of Allison—and learns a few secrets about her own mother in the process. Suddenly Rae is at risk of losing everything and everyone she cares about unless she steps up and takes charge of her life once and for all.

    " Fun writing and wonderful characterization. Not much there in the way of plot, but I almost didn't miss it! "

    " I received an ARC of this book from the author. I really enjoyed this book...very well written, easy read. I've been out of high school for 20 some years but I can relate to the storyline and feel that most teenage girls would really enjoy it. Rae is an amazing girl! "
