As a lowly freshman, Presley Moran walks high-school corridors paved with the stuff of family legend. Her cousin, Barry, a senior heartthrob and brainy varsity letterman, insists that looking good on paper is the key to success. But Presley's young aunt, Betsi, a former homecoming queen, has her own ideas about good looks and how to use them.

Can you keep a secret? Betsi asks Presley, who, at age 14, is eager to enter the adult world of beauty, attraction, and romance. But as Presley is about to discover, some secrets should never be revealed. Will the illicit thrill of being a trusted confidante be worth the consequences of guilt by association?

Propelled by the crash of falling idols, The Girl I Wanted to Be is a timeless and true portrait of passion, loss, and hard-won wisdom. Download and start listening now!

    " Presley wants to be like her wild Aunt Betsi - but when Aunt Betsi gets involved with Presley's high school-aged cousin things get out of hand. "

    " A "coming of age" book, in which Presley Moran learns the unconfortable truth that those we place our faith and trust in, and perhaps even idolize, are only human after all. "

    " Read the whole book in one night--the writing is fluid and easy and the story made me want to see what was going to happen. Some teen angst, but the emphasis is on an extended family's drama, which I think is what kept me reading, as teen girl angst books are a dime a dozen. "
