Can we overcome our past?
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head...and heart. When Katie and her new "wrong crowd" get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.
All of Jenny B. Jones' books are sassy and hilarious, and In Between is no exception. Her witty characters and comedic situations will have you laughing out loud and rooting for Katie til the end.
Well worth reading
As the mother of two teen girls, I recommend this book for both mothers and daughters . Even though this is a young adult book, I found it enjoyable to read. It's refreshing to read a story about ordinary people like you and me who have struggles yet find hope and humor in the midst of them.
Love this book :)
