About this item
A wonderful debut novel that captures the essence of real, messy teenage lives: of action and consequence, of poor choices and fragile friendships, of standing up for what is right, and the attempt to make sense of a world when everything feels like it's falling apartPeople are so naturally strange, it's hard to tell if they're broken or not—but I'm pretty sure that by the time I finish high school, I'll be a pile of shards, beyond repair.At 15, Clover is finding the going tougher than she expected. Her life is close to being derailed on the rocky terrain of family, friendship, first love, acts of defiance, and a planet on the brink of environmental disaster. So when Keek breaks his promise to her, her mother is impossible, her beloved old dog is dying, her dad is in the wind, the girls at school are awful, the boys are bullies, and she's arrested for vandalism—well, what else can she be but a little bit broken? Can Clover pull herself together—or will she spiral further out of control? When life feels like it's fracturing, how do you find a way to feel whole?
