She's traveled halfway around the world for a second chance at life.

Rebecca Levine is tired of being a victim, after years of being relentlessly bullied at school and after her loser-outcast image pushed her to a suicide attempt. Home from the hospital and determined to survive, she wants an emotional makeover, and a study-abroad program in Israel seems like the perfect place for it to happen. But when roommate issues crop up, Rebecca is convinced she’ll become the school loser again. Can she overcome her issues and make herself over?

As a special gift to readers, this book contains the short story sequel, “This Year at Home,” about what happens to Rebecca when she returns home.

The religious content is from a Jewish (Reform) perspective. Contains mild profanity, references to sex and drug use, and non-explicit sex scenes between older teens. May not be appropriate for younger, middle-grade teens.
