Always the New Girl (Paperback)
FINALIST - BOOK EXCELLENCE AWARD, YOUNG ADULT FICTION
Knitting nerd Sarah Redmond is always the new girl, never the popular one.
Moving all over the country with her flighty mom seemed to be her lot in life, but her junior year at Sierra Vista High School feels like it could be different.
She's finally on the verge of a social breakthrough.
But when she gets publicly punked at her first party, she and her new friends find a creative way to use their shared obsession with knitting to exact sweet revenge. And when their efforts lead to a lucrative business, Sarah knows she's set. But when her deadbeat dad comes back around she starts to wonder if she should try for a different life, instead of following the paths her parents have chosen. She'd always half thought her small-time knitting channel could grow into a big-time knitting channel, but maybe college as a backup plan isn't such a ridiculous idea, after all.
But is that something a girl like her can really make happen?
