Author Info
Joan Bauer
Many of Joan Bauer's young adult novels feature feisty female protagonists--a situation likely influenced by the fact that Bauer is one of four sisters who were raised primarily by their mother and maternal grandmother. Bauer has said that her father, a salesman who was married four times, was a complicated person--a characterization mirrored by many of the fathers in her books. Before becoming a full-time author, Bauer worked in advertising--a career which blossomed into writing for magazines and newspapers and eventually movie screenplays. Her first novel, SQUASHED, was written as she slowly recovered from a serious car accident. That book, which was published in 1992, won the Delacorte Press Prize for a First Novel.
Praise
"[V]ia vivid characterizations, crisp, believable dialogue and some exciting scenarios, Bauer keeps her fans hooked for an entertaining ride."
From the Publisher
First Line "Feet," said Dr. Suzanne Rodriguez over the phone, "are the most abused parts of the body."
Annotation High school junior Jenna Boller's summer road trip with her boss, Mrs. Gladstone of Gladstone Shoes, changed her life completely. A wonderful new sense of self confidence, a smidgeon of weight loss, and a much-desired shiny red car all come in handy as she faces a new set of challenges. Not only is Jenna still coping with her father's alcoholism, but she's experiencing the corporate madness that can occur when two shoe-store chains merge. Throw Tanner Cobb--a very cute new employee who also happens to be on probation for theft--in the mix and Jenna's life becomes even more complicated. As she slowly learns to trust him, Jenna discovers that being spontaneous is as important as being reliable. The heart-warming sequel to RULES OF THE ROAD.
Editors Note Between school and Al-Anon meetings, Jenna Boller helps Mrs. Gladstone cope with escalating problems that result from the merger of Gladstone Shoes with Shoe Warehouse Corporation, while managing a new employee with a shoplifting record. Reprint.
