Books & Books, Coral Gables. Wednesday, April 17, 2013. 7:00 p.m.

A compelling portrait of a girl who is a master of reinvention – creating a new name, new identity and new profile every time she moves to a new town: Dessen tells the story of Mclean, a high school senior who has taken on a new persona in each of the four towns she’s lived in since her parents’ bitter divorce. Each new move has brought a fresh opportunity for Mclean to reinvent herself from perky cheerleader to drama diva to all-around joiner. But here in Lakeview, Mclean’s putting down roots for the first time, making friends, unpacking boxes, and discovering a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is.
