I pulled an oldie-but-goodie off the shelf recently - Rachel Vail's Ever After. It's about a young girl, Molly, during the summer before she starts high school, in a small town on an island. It dealt with a little bit of everything - peer pressure, first periods, relationships with parents, complications with boys, bad decisions, and coming back around after making bad decisions. I think almost any middle school or early high school age girl could relate to Molly. And I liked the ending because it didn't wrap everything up in a neat little bow like a bad tv sitcom, but it showed tremendous hope. Enjoy!
