Popularity didn't come easily for sixteen-year-old Brianna Taylor. She didn't wear the right clothes or come from the right family. In fact, she didn't come from any family at all, unless you counted Jolene, who just wasn't that into being a mom. So when Brianna joins the cheerleading squad, she finds herself suddenly popular. But then a one-night stand has life-altering consequences, and Brianna must accept help from the one person closest to her mistake. No longer in control, Brianna must reevaluate all that she thought was important and learn the true meaning of family.
