National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr has created another solid story about teenage girls—a bittersweet story of the bonds of friendship. As teenagers, Jennifer and Cameron are loners, outcasts who find comfort in each other as they endure the bullying of their peers. When they’re reunited years later, they must confront the different directions they've chosen and struggle to hang on to the love that made them so close. The story is read by the author with such genuineness that listeners will find themselves believing they’re actually listening to the teens themselves. Zarr perfectly captures the nuances of voice and inflection that teens use with friends or adults. Choosing Zarr to read her own story was a wise decision.
