About the Author

Nora Raleigh Baskin had dreamed of being a writer since childhood, but it wasn't until she was married with two small children that she began to write seriously. Her first novel, What Every Girl (Except Me) Knows (9780744590456) was followed by Almost Home (9781844286003). Both are semi-autobiographical stories, about girls searching for a place to belong. Nora now teaches creative writing for children, and speaks at schools and libraries across the country.

Reviews

Gr 7 Up-Natalie's mother left in mid-sentence. At least that is what Natalie remembers. Now four years, four months, and fifteen days later, the 16-year-old is traveling on a bus from Connecticut to Florida to ask her mother exactly what she had meant to say. The teen remembers that it was something about love, and, in her present predicament, she really needs to know. She is in a one-sided obsessive relationship with Adam, with whom she experiences her "ultimate passage into womanhood"; she has alienated her best friend; and her father thinks that she has gone skiing in Vermont. During the trip, Natalie encounters a variety of people with whom she briefly interacts, but who leave an impression on her. Their stories are inserted into the narrative as cameos, and she comes to understand that she can be loved for who she is-and not because she was a girl whose mother did not love her enough to stay. A moving coming-of-age story.-Sharon Morrison, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Durant, OK Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
