Great book for young teen girls. Celeste is the recognizable, down-to-earth center of the story. You will feel for her as she is mercilessly teased by the stuck-up and popular Lively Carson and abandoned by her best friend and you will cheer for her as she discovers her self-esteem and own inner strength.
