Problem youth--Fiction; Teenage girls--Fiction; Texas--Fiction
One summer. Three months. Twelve weeks. Eighty-four days. Two thousand and sixteen hours. One summer can seem like an eternity when you’re stuck someplace you don’t want to be. Just ask me. My name is Jessica Annon, but you can call me Jessie.
Jessie’s behavior has been marginal at best for quite some time, but when Jessie’s mom has to pick her up at the police station one night, it’s the last straw. Not knowing what else to do, Jessie’s mom packs Jessie off for the summer to live with her LDS aunt, uncle, and five cousins in Texas.
Now with no contact with the outside world except pen-and-paper letters, Jessie must spend the summer with a bunch of goodie-goodies. What a drag! Surely no good can come of it, right?
Come spend the summer with Jessie as she meets new friends, discovers things about herself, and comes to a new realization about life and the gospel. [from publisher's web site]
