About the Book

Returning to the characters and language that attracted widespread critical acclaim in Make Lemonade, Virginia Euwer Wolff again achieves excellence in this gripping second novel about LaVaughn, her family and her community.

When LaVaughn was little, the obstacles in her life didn't seem so bad. If she had an argument with Annie or Myrtle, it would never last long. If she fell out with her mother, they would have made it up by bedtime. School was simple. Boys were friends. Everything made sense. But LaVaughn is now fifteen and the obstacles aren't going away anymore. Big questions separate her from her friends. Her mother is distracted by a new man. School could slip away from her so easily. And the boy who's a miracle in her life acts as if he's in love with her. Only he's not in love with her.
