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.
Author Bio
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

Publishers Weekly
