According to sixteen-year-old Zander Osborne, nowhere is an actual place—and she’s just fine there. But her parents insist that she get out of her head—and her home state—and attend Camp Padua, a summer camp for at-risk teens. Zander does not fit in—or so she thinks. She has only one word for her fellow campers: crazy. In fact, the whole camp population exists somewhere between disaster and diagnosis. There’s her cabinmate Cassie, a self-described manic-depressive-bipolar-anorexic. Grover Cleveland (yes, like the president), a cute but confrontational boy who expects to be schizophrenic someday, odds being what they are. And Bek, a charmingly confounding pathological liar. But amid group “share-apy” sessions and forbidden late-night outings, unlikely friendships form, and as the Michigan summer heats up, the four teens begin to reveal their tragic secrets. Zander finds herself inextricably drawn to Grover’s earnest charms, and she begins to wonder if she could be happy. But first she must come completely unraveled to have any hope of putting herself back together again.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Caitlin Kelly narrates from the viewpoint of Zander Osborne, a sixteen-year-old girl…[and] provides unique voices for the dialogue of everyone in Zander’s world…Kelly reads Zander’s story in an even tone that grows in intensity and urgency as Zander breaks out of her shell and engages with the world around her for the first time in years. Kelly deftly conveys how these teens come together to find themselves.” AudioFile
“The true beauty of Crane’s book lies in the way she handles the ugly, painful details of real life, showing the glimmering humanity beneath the façades of even her most troubled characters…Crane shows, with enormous heart and wisdom, how even the unlikeliest of friendships can give us the strength we need to keep on fighting.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“A great read for teens, especially girls, and a strong candidate for cross-generation discussion.” VOYA
