What a GREAT novel for adolescent girls by a Canadian award-winning author! It is a story that kept me reading and looking for more.
This story is about Madison Stokes and Alyssa Hawkins. The two girls are similar yet very different. Madison lives a pretty average life, like many teen girls. She has an average mom and dad. She looks average and has average grades. She is nothing out of the ordinary.
Then Alyssa moves into Madison’s town and nothing will ever be the same again. Madison decides to take Alyssa under her wing and the two girls very quickly become the best of friends. Alyssa even befriends Madison’s sister, who is anything but nice.
However, despite their deep bond and friendship, there are things Alyssa want to keep secretive from Madison. She won’t even let Madison come over to her house for a while. But when Madison insists on coming over to her house and finds out her secret, does she leave her friend? Can Madison keep the secret, even from her own family?
