Product Overview

Thirteen-year-old Katie is new to her Missouri town, living alone with a stern, inaccessible father following her mother's death. Unable to fit in at school, Katie forges alliances wherever she can: with her housekeeper, with a pimply-faced fellow misfit named Cynthia, and with the gorgeous Taylor, who gets her kicks out of shoplifting. Most frustrating of all is Katie's alliance with a handsome 23-year-old who shares her love for checkers but doesn't return her crush. . .

Author Info
Elizabeth Berg
Berg, a former critical-care nurse, has published fiction in such publications as "Ladies' Home Journal", "Redbook", "The New York Times Magazine", and "New Woman", and she has been nominated for a National Magazine Award.
Praise
"[T]he richness of the characters and the intricacies of their personal relationships make this a delightful and valuable book....Elizabeth Berg is exceptionally talented at rendering the emotional pain of love and friendships meaningful, in a natural, honest voice. She is a graceful, insightful author..."
"The adolescent internal monologue offered by Berg...is both hilarious and heartbreaking."
"...Katie's lively narrative voice provides the novel's greatest pleasure. Its plot...is ancillary to the real story of how she grows up and surmounts her losses....It [treats] a venerable theme with freshness."
