Description

The day of the last party of the summer, Claudia over hears a conversation she wasn't supposed to. Now on the wrong side of one of the meanest girls in school, Claudia doesn't know what to expect when the two are paired up to write a paper - let alone when they're both forced to try out for the school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

But mandatory participation has its upsides - namely, an unexpected friendship, a boy-band obsession, and a guy with the best dimpled smile Claudia's ever seen. As Claudia's world starts to expand, she finds that maybe there are some things worth sticking her neck out for.

Review quote

Praise for Foolish Hearts

"Through . . . friendship struggles and romances old and new, Mills evokes the high stakes and vast rewards of trust, intimacy, and honesty." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

". . . the characters are wonderfully fresh and honest. Claudia narrates in funny, conversational first-person present as the plot meanders toward opening night of Midsummer, allowing time for Claudia's blooming relationships and self-confidence to develop. The course of true love never did run smooth, but in the case of these two lovers, the journey is worth your while." --Kirkus Reviews

". . . the backdrop of [Claudia's] school interactions, family events, (including her sister's dangerous premature delivery), gaming, part-time job, developing interest in a hot new band, and personal growth in her circle of friends is exceptional . . . " --School Library Journal

This Adventure Ends

"Immensely enjoyable." --Booklist

"Mills (First & Then) seamlessly creates art imitating life imitating art while bringing freshness to the familiar romantic conventions she invokes. With taut, realistic dialogue, she expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances." --Publishers Weekly

First & Then

"With sporadic references to Jane Austen's famous characters and wickedly inventive language, Mills closely observes the social milieu of an American high school. . . . A fresh, smart, inventive, and altogether impressive debut." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
