Synopsis

Ever since Sarah Jones s best friend Jamie died in a freak accident, life has felt sort of...random. Sarah has always followed the rules her father is the school superintendent, and she s always been a good student, a good pal, a good girlfriend. Now what? Her grades are plummeting, she and her boyfriend are drifting apart, and if she doesn t get her act together, her parents might have to resort to taking her beloved dog Ruby away from her. In a last ditch effort to pull it together, Sarah ends up working for Roy, a local eccentric who owns a Christmas tree farm, and who might also be trying to understand the rules, patterns, and connections in life. Will life ever make sense again?

Teen Writers Blog

I don’t recommend reading the front cover copy, because it gives away plot stuff that I’m glad I didn’t know before reading.
