Can we overcome our past?
Katie Parker is about to get a new life - whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls home, when she finds herself in over her head...and heart.
When Katie and her new crowd get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family's messed up legacy, or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

"Wholesome, Fun and Endearing"
Solid storyline and interesting background. Foster care and Foster parenting have a bit of stigma attached to them and some readers might hesitate, and would miss out. The characters are fun and not predictable, but believable. This is a great summer read and appropriate for even Jr. High age, but is not juvenile. Just an easy, relaxing read with a bit of moral goodness for a change!
Melody Carlson has some books out that are clean and fun in this way.
Her voices were distinguished and consistent.
When Katie was in trouble and expecting the very worst, but things turned out differently than one would expect.
liked the expression in the narrator s voice. inspirational for a young girl. cute story.
"just what I needed"
Another great and timely story by Jenny Jones. great story filled with God's truths, humor (literally laughing out loud at times) and tugs on the heartstrings.
Excellently narrated. YA material. Cute story. Even though I'm well past my YA years, I thoroughly enjoyed the snarky sense of humor of the main character. This book left me wanting to find out what happens next.
Wonderful story. Reminiscent of Junie b. jones by Jenny b. jones. I will be reading the rest and listening to the next audio production!
