No wiil admit that Carrie has a problem.

Carrie Stokes has a lot going for her. She's smart, artistic, has a beautiful home and loving family. She can have anything she wants . . . except what she needs most: someone who believes her.

Ever since her family moved, Carrie has had a hard time adjusting to the changes in her life. Dizzy spells and daydreams are becoming routine. The world seems to be moving too fast for her, the pressure to "grow up" and conform is too great. And if the world has given up on Carrie, will Carrie give up on herself?

An ALA notable book.

Good read of a young girl growing up and the problems faced by some when that occurs too fast....

Great book for young girls. Would be great for a girl who has recently moved to a new area.
