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 When she is abandoned by her alcoholic mother, 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, and that she too has something to offer others.
