Life isn't neat and tidy. It's like a whole lot of balls of brightly colored wool thrown in a basket, with stray beginnings and endings and possibilities everywhere. Let's follow the blue.

Fifteen-year-old Bec has always been the good girl. Growing up with an eccentric celebrity chef mother and a father who suffers from depression, Bec is used to taking care of her two younger siblings and being labeled "the sensible one." But when Bec's parents decide to take a six-week tour of the U.S., she decides that she is sick of being responsible and is ready for some adventures of her own. She meets a new friend named Jaz, dyes her hair, wins money, throws her first party, and then there's the boy thing...
In this intoxicating novel by award-winning author and poet Brigid Lowry, Bec realizes that maybe she isn't so ordinary after all-and that sometimes it doesn't hurt to, as her mother would say, "lighten up and enjoy the ride."

Brigid Lowry is the author of award-winning poetry, short stories, and young adult novels. She is well-known in Australia, where her first novel, Guitar Highway Rose, was a runaway success with young readers and a finalist for or winner of numerous prestigious awards. She spent much of her life in Australia but now lives in New Zealand...

Editorial Reviews

"Imagine a more functional Georgia Nicholson (of Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging) in Perth, Australia, and you'll have the main character in this exhilarating novel." -Booklist"[An] inviting Australian novel by the author of Guitar Highway Rose..Readers will find Bec's anecdotes compelling." -Publishers Weekly"Funny, fresh characters.A fun read from down under." -Kirkus"Lowry is also a poet, and she paints lovely splashes of color that transcend and augment the characters' trials and tribulations..This one is worth 'bunging' onto the shelves as it's a 'hell-fun' read." -School Library Journal"A lot goes on in this very funny romp, some of it quite profound..[A] delightful trip down under." -Booklist
