Product Description: Allison Anderson is a normal but not average fourteen year old girl. She knows she's different, but it hadn't bothered her too much until now. New house, new neighborhood, and new school are bad enough, but it's her first year of high school. She becomes more aware of her social and physical limitations than ever before. And the new people she meets are perplexing: the tough-looking girl from her home room, the dangerous-looking but charming boy she can't help liking, the quiet older girl who keeps to herself, and the sullen junior that doesn't seem to trust or like her at all. She's been the victim of bullying in the past and doesn't know whether to trust them. She also begins to learn that things - and people - are not always what they seem. Her world is turned upside-down by these and other new friends, human and otherwise. Her world soon becomes complicated and much more interesting!
