Praise
"Bea's original first-person voice will draw readers in, and the unexpected plot will keep them engaged."
"Standiford realistically depicts both the social intricacies of a small school and the emotional nuances of two dysfunctional families. Her characters are unusually true-to-life as, caught up in the intensity of their present, they fumble toward fully formed identities and fulfilling relationships."
From the Publisher
Annotation Discouraged about being the new girl yet again, and for her senior year of all things, Bea finds herself drawn into an intense and tricky friendship springs with Jonah, nicknamed Ghost Boy. Struggling with her mother's weird mood swings and the new moniker "Robot Girl," Bea turns to Jonah even though he is evasive and distant. A love of late night, call-in radio show and sharing the same twisted humor bring them together, but soon, a secret changes everything.
Editors Note After arriving at her new school and being seated next to Jonah, a sad boy who is rumored to have not made a friend in years, Beatrice's compassion for his lonely state compels her to reach out to him and, with time and patience, learn what he needs to heal his wounded soul.
