Each discovery disturbs the arrangements of the known world, and it is our job to stay alert to all possibilities.

LaVaughn believes she is keeping alert to all possibilities. She has made it through the projects, she’s gotten over heartbreak, she’s grown up, and now she’s been admitted to the Women in Science program that might finally be her ticket to COLLEGE. But the discoveries she makes during her senior year in high school–two girls pregnant, with very few options–disturb everything in her known world. And in an effort to bring together people who should love each other, she jeopardizes the one prize she has sought her whole life long.

When do you know whether you’re doing the right thing? What happens when you can’t find a way to make lemonade out of lemons?

Virginia Euwer Wolff takes on the biggest questions˜about life and love, certainly, but also about girls and women, sacrifice and compassion˜and has something quite rev-elatory to say about them in this full house. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/1/2014

    " I'm glad I read this series. While it was heartbreaking at parts, it had a good message of hope. Anyone thinking of not going to college should read this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen Harris | 1/31/2014

    " I really, really, really loved Make Lemonade, I really , really, love True Believer, I was not so thrilled with this one. It took me two months to read, simply because I could not get in it. Plus, I found it very hard to believe and buy into. To me it was a disappointing book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debby | 1/28/2014

    " While this book has the same inspirational aspects as the earlier two, it's marred, I think, by an implausible subplot, and I had trouble looking past that. I still found myself rooting for these characters, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shanazia | 1/15/2014

    " this book waz very suprizing ex.. when LaVaughn found out that that (dr..... cant remeber her name) waz jollys mom "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill | 1/12/2014

    " I must admit I couldn't finish it. LaVaugn and her circumstances just got to be too much for me. I felt like this volume especially came off as an outsider looking into a cultural situation rather than providing insight form the inside. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricki | 1/8/2014

    " This is a beautiful book in verse. It made me immediately purchase the first two online, as I want to read what happens before this book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ariel | 1/1/2014

    " I think this could have potentially been really good , but it was way to drawn out and I had to force myself to read it all the way through . I wouldn't recommend it . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cori Llewelyn | 1/1/2014

    " A little bit of "This is too good to be true", but I enjoyed it and thought it wrapped everything up perfectly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda Kahn | 12/18/2013

    " Another dug out from deep inside the tbr pile. I just didn't buy into the plot contrivance, so I'm a bit disappointed in the conclusion of this trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 11/25/2013

    " I love this series so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Mueller | 11/19/2013

    " Good conclusion to the trilogy. Fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 9/20/2013

    " I really liked this series. Very good ending! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 11/6/2012

    " I was disappointed with this conclusion to the Make Lemonade trilogy. The main plot device - where LaVahn discovers that her favourite mentor is the biological mother of her friend Jolly - is forced, and the book over all is too long, with too much filler. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 8/20/2012

    " Wanted to like this more, but seriously, the premise is so far fetched. Loved the first book, but read the first 2 so long ago, I didn't remember the multiple references made in This Full House, which diminished the writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandee Terry | 11/27/2011

    " This book was a letdown. The characters did done things I wouldn't have expected of them. The storyline was full of boring science terminology and it just lost te excitement of the original book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dillon | 9/25/2011

    " This was also an enjoyable read. Despite the perfect ending, (you have to admit that we all need those), the book had a realness to it. I enjoyed the surprises, and I think this series is worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 4/16/2011

    " A satisfying conclusion to an excellent trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 2/13/2011

    " This book will punch you in the stomach. It is so mind bottleing. This Full House is about a 15 year old girl who sees what life is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 12/22/2010

    " Oh, I did want to know what happened to them, but there was a bit of a leap of belief for the DNA stuff and maybe a tigher edit would have been better too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shanazia | 9/4/2010

    " this book waz very suprizing ex.. when LaVaughn found out that that (dr..... cant remeber her name) waz jollys mom "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AL_Jenny | 6/3/2010

    " It's quite possible that Wolff should have stopped with the sequel and left this third piece out. The story continues with the same characters. We continue to follow LaVaughn's life and watch her as she makes decisions towards her goals and future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariana | 5/27/2010

    " This was the best out of the Make Lemonade trilogy. I really liked the ending, it was really sweet and great. She made it into college, and she ends up with Patrick. It was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cori | 4/3/2010

    " A little bit of "This is too good to be true", but I enjoyed it and thought it wrapped everything up perfectly. "
