Publisher Description

Originally published in 2007.

Can we overcome our past?
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head...and heart. When Katie and her new "wrong crowd" get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

This novel is amazing. It's funny (like laugh out loud funny) touching, very we'll written. I actually like the main character and all if the rest. This book has a slight Christian theme but it's not overwhelming and anybody who has ever struggled to see God during a difficult situation can relate to this book. I really really loved it. I immediately got the next book in the series and I can't wait to read it. Get this book!

Katie Parker's adventures!

It is a coming of age story, which shows the character growth of the protagonist.
What I love are the wonderful foster parents, whom I hope to mimic, the crazy grandmother Maxine, who is a hard to forget specimen and the perfect friend material Frances Vega.
Sprinkle a few other characters from the church and that is the perfect recipe for a beautiful story.
I am eager to read more. Wait up Katie Parker, here I come!
