Product description


"Tessa Palmeri zeros in on the struggle and angst of that important time just before a teen is leaving for college. ... Palmeri understands teens, their language, what is important to them. She paints a vivid picture of life in America at the close of the last century with an insiders eye." Carol P. Roman "Great read! This book is not only for young adults, it's also an interesting read for adults of all ages. This coming of age story shows the true, raw emotions of a young girl who has a rocky relationship with her family at home but, thanks to her mentor/boss at work she has a soft place to land. The subject matter is so real and leaves the reader "remembering when." The author has a knowledgeable grasp of the year in which the story takes place. I highly suggest this novel for moms and daughters. What a great conversation starter! Can't wait for the second book!" Kara F. "I loved the draws you in and makes you feel like you know the characters personally. It was great seeing Olivia grow and blossom with the help of the right the support...Mrs. K, Cameron, advisers, Mrs. Grayson, etc. I also loved the spark between Olivia & Cameron. I would love for my daughter to meet a Cameron! He is the boy that every girl should hold out for....supportive, thoughtful, respectful, encouraging, empowering, etc. I appreciated that the book deals with important real world issues that are relevant and that need to be addressed with today's young adults...knowing the value that you possess, regardless of what others say to tear you down...the importance of finding your own way in life...the pressures of attraction and intimacy. The narrative was steamy enough to be realistic...let's face it, when you are 18 and find that guy that makes your head spin, it can be HOT." Loren S. "I loved this first novel by Tessa Palmeri. The storyline quickly brought me in and the author presented a very real look at the emotions surrounding the ending of one season of life (HS) and the start of another (college). I really appreciated the candor of Ms. Palmeri's writing around young love and was inspired by the subtle, yet steady thread of faith that carried throughout the book. I can't wait to continue the journey with these characters." Jill S.

Product Description

Don't let them steal your joy ...

Olivia Miller is pretty sure she’d win the high school senior award “Most Likely to Never Figure Out What They Want To Do With Their Life”. Her critical father and neglectful mother have contributed to her anxiety and lack of direction about her future. She’s a model student with a big heart for community service, but her dad has belittled any ambition she ever had in pursuing something she’s interested in. College is a definite, but where should she go, and what should she major in?

But there’s a new guy at school, Cameron McClain, who becomes a fabulous distraction. He is positively swoon-worthy, and not just because he’s a gorgeous romantic who plays the guitar. He’s also thoughtful and respectful, providing some much-needed acceptance and encouragement for Olivia. He fits right in with Olivia’s circle of friends: future fashion designer Lyla, photographer Kate, and all-around popular Josh.

This story is about Olivia’s journey in learning to think for herself, set personal boundaries, and overcome limitations imposed by her overbearing parents, all while trying to set a good example for her younger sister, Emma, who is watching and learning from her. Thankfully, Olivia’s boss and mentor, Mrs. K, is looking out for her, offering guidance in life and Christian faith.

Will she ever be able to get her dad’s judgmental comments out of her head? Most of all, she can’t wait to get away from home!
