Twelve-year-old Adele Walker enters the crucible of adolescence longing for elegance and deploring her family’s lack of it. When her ideals of a perfect life collapse, Adele withdraws into silence toward her parents and accepts the advice of a shadowy internet friend. Adele’s in trouble, and who even knows about it?
Twelve-year-old Adele’s life is elegant and refined, aside from her five noisy siblings, her unfeeling parents, and the fact that she’s the last person at school – including the kindergartners – without a cell phone. Can she learn to balance her perfectly proper dream life with her real-life family? Fresh and alluring prose makes this follow-up to The Hoarders a delightful read that’s sure to stick with you long after the last page.
