From the Publisher:

When Kit Hathaway makes a mistake, she doesn't fool around.

Upset about losing the lead in the school play and problems with her obnoxious stepfather, Kit impulsively steals a gold bracelet from a fancy department store. And promptly gets caught.

Suddenly her whole life changes. Kit is sure she's blown her chance at a scholarship, and even her relationship with her best friend is strained. Ironically, the only good thing is her sentence: 20 hours of volunteer work at the humane society. Kit feels just like those animals...caged in. But with the help of a special new friend, Kit comes to a startling realization: the key to her cage is right in her own hand.

About the Author:

Peg Kehret was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, spent fourteen years in California, and now lives with her husband in Washington State. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, one dog, and one cat.

Peg's novels for children are regularly recommended by the American Library Association, the International Reading Association, and the Children's Book Council. She has won many state "young reader" or "children's choice" awards. Peg's characters are ordinary kids who find themselves in exciting situations and who use their wits to solve their problems. There is usually humor as well as suspense in her books. A long-time volunteer at The Humane Society, she often uses animals in her stories.

Before she began writing books for children, Peg published plays, short stories, articles, and two books for adults. She is a frequent speaker at conferences for librarians and teachers.

At the age of twelve, Peg had polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. Because she can remember that experience and her year of recovery so vividly, she finds it easy to write in the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen year old. Most of her main characters are that age. Her autobiography, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio, won the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and the PEN Center USA West Award for Children's Literature.

When she is not writing, Peg likes to watch baseball, bake cookies, and pump her old player piano.
