Back cover copy

Heaven to Betsy Betsy Ray is loving every minute of freshman year at Deep Valley High--with new and old friends all around her . . . not to mention boys! But most intriguing of all is the one she and her best friend, Tacy, dub "the Tall Dark Stranger."

Betsy in Spite of Herself Betsy is at the center of every activity as a Deep Valley High sophomore--and suddenly, thanks to her old friend Tib, she's offered a golden opportunity for glorious transformation. But will she impress the special boy by becoming dramatic, mysterious Betsye--or would she be better off just being Betsy in spite of herself?
