Annie has been promised a summer of freedom in the country. Freedom from a difficult school year, and freedom from her mom's life-governing spreadsheets and rigid schedules. When Annie meets California, it seems she has found the perfect partner for the summer she's always craved. Especially when California offers Annie a real-life adventure: if she and Annie can find the ponies her mom rode as a girl, surely it will remind her mom how wonderful the farm is-- and fix what's broken between her mom and her grandfather. But Annie's summer of freedom is sprinkled with secrets, and everything she has learned about bravery and love will be put to the test when the truth behind the ultimate secret changes her life forever.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Tara Sands realistically interprets a well-off teen's wry observations of her dysfunctional family and their friends. Finally released from the watchfulness of her well-meaning but overbearing mother, Annie reinvents herself during her family's annual lake house vacation. Gaunt and bony, she finds an unlikely friend named California, a robust and sturdy country girl so unlike Annie's mother and the rest of the wealthy vacationers, who are voiced with appropriate snobbery and disdain. Sands's portrayal of California begins cheerily confident. Later, the voices of both girls change, becoming soft and quavery, sometimes angry, as they face hard truths about themselves, their families, and each other. L.T. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
