With a truly authentic voice, debut YA novelist Dana L. Davis brings to glorious life teenage Tiffany Sly in all her angst, uncertainty and intelligence as she navigates her new situations - family, city, friends. Moving to the Los Angeles area from Chicago to live with her new-found dad and his family, Tiffany's emotions are never far from the surface and sometimes explode out at inopportune times -- but that is what is so refreshing about her and how Davis expertly shows us the many facets of a real teen as she struggles to come to grips with grief and separation. Highly recommended! - Maureen
