fter her parent's divorce, McLean decided to stay with her father rather than move in with her mother and brother. As her dad moved from one job site to another, the high school senior reinvented herself at every stop along the way.
rom rah-rah girl to drama diva, her persona's kept the real McLean safely hidden behind the phony mask. Now, as she settles into Lakeview, Mclean is going to try something new. She's going to be herself for a change.
ew friends - and especially a cute guy named Dave - make this a decision that may have a major affect on what happens next in this girl's life. And, when it is time to move again, perhaps McLean will have to make the hardest decision of her young life. Having put down a few roots and fostered some important relationships, will she be able to just pack and move on?
arah Dessen has caught on with teenagers. Her novels of self-discovery seem to strike a common cord in her readers that make it easy for them to relate to the characters and situations found in her contemporary stories. With over four million copies of her books in print, she obviously has something relevant to say to her targeted audience.
