Nothing ever changes in Turnback, Missouri. At least that's what thirteen-year-old Glory thinks. But then the carnival comes to town, and she meets Marvalene. Glory thinks that Marvalene has the most exciting life of anyone she's ever met. But Marvalene is tired of the carnival and longs to live with her family in a house without wheels. Both girls wish their lives were different, and both need a friend. But when Glory and Marvalene uncover a secret from the past, their friendship may be doomed.
"As satisfying as a hot, crisp corn dog at a carnival.

'About Face' is a wonderful book.I definitly reccomend this book to aanyone who loves to read. About face is about two girls who wish they lived in eachothers shoes.One of the girls,Glory Bea Goode,lives with her Gram because her father is a complete loser who doesn't pay child support and her mother died 10 years earlier due to a ruptured appendix.And the other girl, Marvalene Zulig,travels with a carnival with her parents.They both wish they had more interesting lives,but they realize that they really are happy with the way they ar after they solve a mystery about the so-called 'Crack-Pot' that lives in Room #5 At seven Cedars (Glory's House).I loved 'About Face' SO much that I'm reading it for a second time!!!I promise anyone who reads this book,that they will love it!!!
