Sydney Salter's First YA Novel
Welcome to the summer of passion. For seventeen-year-old Jory Michaels, that means three sun-and-fun filled months of spending time with her best friends, obsessing over her crush, trying to find something she is passionate about, and…saving for a nose job. Jory is determined to lose the big, honking, bumpy monstrosity she calls the Super Schnozz—the one thing standing between her and happiness.
“Complex, likeable, believable characters, and a fresh, appealing fictional voice pull together this very agreeable summer romance.” –Kirkus Reviews

Lydia Bennet is back in town.
After a year at reform school, Lydia returns home, unapologetic and ready to reclaim her title as leader of the pack. But where's the party? And why isn't she invited?
Home isn't much different from reform school - or jail. Her dad acts like a warden, and even her mom won't give Lydia time off for (almost) good behavior. Her twin sister thinks Lydia's the enemy, the other girls in her old posse treat her like roadkill, and most of the guys want her for one thing. The only guy who wants something different doesn't seem to want Lydia.
She's changed, but no one sees it or believes it. Is it too late to fix her bad-girl rep? Or should she just be the wild girl everyone thinks she is?
