Description

After Ivy is forced to move to "the wrong side of the tracks" due to economic hard times, she discovers that not everything--or everyone--is what they seem, even herself. Fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen will love this funny, poignant, and relatable story. When Ivy Emerson's family loses their house--complete with her beloved piano--the fear of what's to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Forced to give up her allowance, her cell phone, and the window seat in her lilac-colored bedroom, Ivy moves with her family from her affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, aka "the wrong side of the tracks." Hiding the truth from her friends--and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own--seems like a good idea at first. But when the bad-boy-next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy's carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them. Once things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some surprising new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. And she may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself.show more

Back cover copy

When Ivy Emerson's family loses their house--complete with her beloved piano--the fear of what's to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn't one of her single, terrifying performances. It's her life. And it isn't pretty. Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as "the wrong side of the tracks." Hiding the truth from her friends--and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own--seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy's carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them. As things reach the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. And she may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself. Debut author Sharon Huss Roat crafts a charming and timely story of what happens when life as you know it flips completely upside down.show more
