"A must for Dessen fans, this will win her new readers, too."
"[T]he in-depth exploration of issues of family, trust, and responsibility gives readers plenty to chew on, and the complex, deeply sympathetic characters are pure pleasure to spend time with."

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.
