Summary
It is 1961, and thirteen-year-old Katie is facing a summer full of conflict. First, instead of letting her find her own work for the season, Katie's father has arranged for two less-than-ideal baby-sitting jobs -- one for the rambunctious Wexler boys and another for Mrs. Randolph, a kind but elderly, bed-ridden neighbor. To make matters worse, Katie has been forcibly inducted into the "loser" Girl Scout troop organized by her only friend Cynthia's controlling and clueless mother. A much-anticipated visit to her former home in Texas and ex-best friend Cherylanne proves disappointing. And then comes an act of betrayal that leaves Katie questioning her views on friendship, on her ability not to take those she loves for granted, and, most important, on herself. "One thing to say about you, Katie, is that you are true. You should be proud of it, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise," Cherylanne insists. But whether or not Katie will ever feel true to herself remains to be seen

Summary
Thirteen-year-old Katie moved to a small Missouri town two years ago, after the death of her mother. She now lives with her stern, inaccessible father and his new wife, who means well but who cannot mend the tear in Katie's heart. Lonely, and isolated by her status as the "smart" kid at school, Katie forges alliances when and where she can. When Katie tries to move up in her social world, she ends up losing her closest friend and learns some very hard lessons about herself
