by Sara Zarr was just okay for me. It's about Deanna who tries to outlive a bad reputation she earned in 8th grade. She doesn't really get along with her parents. She plans on moving to an apartment with her brother and his family.
Nothing ever really happens in this book. I kept waiting and expecting, but the book didn't deliver. Deanna makes amends with people she has issues with in the book, but there was no big climactic event.
