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 "wrong 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.

    A must read! Very well written. The plot may at first seem "been there, done that" but that isn't even close. The characters are well developed and the story line is well done. Written in first person, often with the thought of the main character inserted. Reading it sounds just like a teenage would sound if you could hear the thoughts. Funny and sad but leaves one with hope. I really enjoyed this book. Another Freebie from Barnes and Noble & NOOK. Thanks again!

    Excellent-Couldn¿t put it down Thank goodness I had a long plane

    Excellent-Couldn’t put it down
    Thank goodness I had a long plane trip and layover so I had lots of time to read this excellent book. I couldn’t put it down!
     This was the first time I’ve read a book by author Jenny B. Jones but certainly not the last; she has a new fan!

    The story is about Katie Parker a foster girl who has been in the system awhile due to her alcoholic, bad mom. Katie is placed in the
     home of James and Millie Scott as new foster parents who have a secret of their own.  James Scott is the pastor of the local church
     with Millie as the secretary. The story goes through the first few months of Katie’s life at the Scott’s house, a new student at the high
     school, and discovering the God. The author does a great job of developing the characters to be so real. I especially like the way she
     developed Millie Scott. She made me feel so connected to her as a woman and just wanted to reach out to her. The writing of Katie
     was also great. Katie’s emotions where put out there as real as it could be and you could really feel for her as a person.  And then
     there was Millie’s mother Maxine who was totally crazy! The character was very well written and you could just picture the antics that
     she did. I laughed, I cried and I loved the book. When it was done, I was disappointed. I didn’t want it to end. I see room for another
     book, there is so much more that can be written with the many good characters in the story. I will be recommending this to my friends.
     Thank you Jenny B. Jones for such an awesome story!!!

    I will be honest

    I havent read this book on my own but when i asked around i got mixed feelins about it some people just got it in barnes and noble since it just came out for way more than like five bucks and they felt like it wasnt worth the amount of money they had to pay and for them to say that it was pretty astonishing seeing as how i mainly asked my friends who has pretty wealthy parents so just saying from another persons view
