DeLaine finds herself at home after the Christmas break with a whole new outlook. It's the first time she can remember coming home without everything seeming so bleak. Her stepbrother Geoffrey and stepmother Clarice are nice to her, which is a surprise, but DeLaine doesn't trust them. The main reason she is happy to come home is to see Kevin Strong and love him from afar. If Geoffrey weren't so crazy jealous of her and Kevin being together, DeLaine thinks her world might be as close to perfect as possible. Perfection would be a real relationship with the most beautiful boy in the world. He provides strength and stability but mostly a feeling of love and protectiveness that DeLaine craves. The problem is that he is the "King" of Milam Junior High and she's only a lowly peasant, albeit not on the lowest rung in the social hierarchy. She is happy this January because she has a new best friend who shouldn't really care about her but because of the tornado, DeLaine has been tossed into the stratosphere of the beautiful Bailey Rains. She and Bailey find themselves getting closer as they walk home from Samson High School every day and Bailey takes a genuine interest in helping DeLaine find her voice and realize her beauty. Find out what new adventures wait for DeLaine in the last half of 7th grade. See what new things she finds out about friendship, love, sex, loss and grace.
