Junior high is a time when everything seems to be changing. That's certainly how it is for Brett (don't call me Bettina) McCarthy. Friends since elementary school are finding different interests and drifting away. People from the periphery are becoming more important. Her beloved grandmother, creator of giant brownies and garage sale inventions, is undergoing chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer. And Brett suddenly finds herself going from soccer star to suspended, from one group of friends to another, from thinking she knows exactly who she is to having to redefine that on what seems like a daily basis. Junior high is a great time to learn that change is inevitable, but it isn't always a bad thing. Join vocabulary-obsessed Brett as she starts figuring out that she'll always be a work in progress.
