Everybody knows who Quinn Avery is. She's the smart, calm, responsible Avery sister, the one who's kept it together in spite of all that's happened since their mom lost her job. But when the family house goes up for sale and Quinn faces the prospect of losing the home she loves, something snaps inside her, and a new, wild, reckless Quinn emerges. Soon Quinn's lying, sneaking out, and partying with a brand-new crowd. When Quinn adds ditching her best friends and kissing the wrong boys-including her sister's boyfriend and her own piano teacher-to her list of crimes, she may finally have gone too far. Can Quinn find her way back to the family that needs her and the only boy she's ever loved?

Review quote

Praise for Brilliant: "Good girls and rebels alike will be able to identify with this adolescent rite of passage. A natural choice for teens waiting for their next Sarah Dessen fix." -- School Library Journal "Vail has done a superb job. Readers who pick this title up will definitely want to backtrack to the earlier titles, and those who've heard Phoebe's and Allison's takes won't want to miss Quinn's." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Vail ends this trilogy on a high note, one that should especially resonate with teens whose lives have changed with the economy. " -- Kirkus Reviews "Vail shows a clear understanding of the everyday turmoil faced by today's teens and handles them with wit and obvious affection. If they haven't already read its predecessor, Lucky (2008), teens will want to after finishing this one." -- Kirkus Reviews
