Virginia Shreves' world implodes again in this long-awaited follow-up to Printz Honoree The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things. Sixteen-year-old Virginia Shreves' life is finally back on course: she's accepted who she is inside and out and is rebuilding her relationship with brother Byron, whose date-rape charge shattered everything. But just as she adjusts to her new normal, her world turns upside down again. Sparks with boyfriend Froggy fade, her best friend bombshells bad news, and then the police arrest Byron. As Virginia struggles to cope, she meets Nate, an artist with his own baggage. The pair vow not to share personal drama. But secrets have a way of coming out, and theirs could ruin everything. Just in time for The Earth, My Butt, and Other BIg Round Things' 15th anniversary, Virginia's hope-filled story of love, friendship, and the beauty in imperfection continues, by acclaimed author Carolyn Mackler.
