Bestselling author Sarah Dessen explores the heart of a gutsy, complex girl dealing with unforeseen circumstances and learning to trust again.
From the Publisher:
When she is abandoned by her alcoholic mother, high school senior Ruby winds up living with Cora, the sister she has not seen for ten years, and learns about Cora's new life, what makes a family, how to allow people to help her when she needs it, and that she too has something to offer others.
Annotation:
Seventeen-year-old Ruby's journey from anger and turmoil to emotional safety after being left by her unstable mother is painful and moving. When Ruby's plans to stick things out alone until she turns 18 are destroyed by a landlord, she is forced to live with her long-gone older sister, Cora. Adjusting to the transition from a hand-to-mouth life and a crowded school to a wealthy gated community and private high school is just one of Ruby's many challenges in this moving novel by popular young adult author Sarah Dessen.
