"A hero who will melt your heart."—Jennifer Echols, national award-winning author of Such a Rush Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She's on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she's made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother's scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her. Now Parker wants a new life. So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds.

I enjoyed this continuation of The Hundred Oaks series. Parker's mom has divorced her husband when she is tired of living a lie. She moves in with her female lover and Parker and her family have to live with the gossip and judging by others. Parker is having a hard time dealing with it and quits ...
