From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note Ruby is used to taking care of herself. But now sheÂ's living in a fancy new house with her sister CoraÂ?a sister she hasnÂ't seen in ten yearsÂ?and her husband JamieÂ?creator of one of the most popular online networking sites. SheÂ's attending private school, wearing new clothes, and for the first time, feels the promise of a future that include college and her family. So why is she so wary? And what is NateÂ? the adorable and good-hearted boy next doorÂ? hiding behind his genial nature? As Ruby starts to see, thereÂ's a big difference between being given help, and being able to accept it. And sometimes, in order to save yourself, youÂ've got to reach out to someone else.
