Bridge is an accident survivor who's wondering why she's still alive. Emily has new curves and an almost-boyfriend who wants a certain kind of picture. Tabitha sees through everybody's games — or so she tells the world. The three girls are best friends with one rule: No fighting. Can it get them through seventh grade?
This year everything is different for Sherm Russo as he gets to know Bridge Barsamian. What does it mean to fall for a girl — as a friend? Meanwhile, months later, on Valentine's Day, an unnamed high school girl struggles with a betrayal. How long can she hide in plain sight?
Memorable characters navigates the challenges of love and change — including the consequences of selfies being sent far and wide — in this captivating novel that explores identity, betrayal, and the power of female friendships.
"The seventh graders aren't the only characters working out relationships. There are married parents and divorced parents and then there's Sherm's grandfather who has suddenly left his wife of 50 years and moved to New Jersey.... [This book is] filled with humor, delightful coincidences, and the sorts of things (salacious cell phone photos, lunchroom politics, talent show auditions) that escalate in ways that can seem life-shattering to a 13-year-old. The author keeps all her balls in the air until she catches them safely with ineffable grace." — Miriam Lang Budin, School Library Journal
