Mara Valentine is in control. She's a straight - a student, a strict vegan and she's heading to Yale in the fall. So when her hellraising sixteen-year-old niece, V, comes to live with the family, Mara is horrified. Even more so when she starts dreaming about cheese sandwiches every night and realizes she is falling for James, her boss. Unable to ignore these unfamiliar cravings, Mara starts to give into them a little and in doing so discovers her sexuality, redefines her relationship with her over-anxious parents, and realizes that V could, in fact, be a potential friend and ally.

CAROLYN MACKLER: "Mara Valentine first came to me in a short story. I loved how she was so rigid but at the same time hungering to break out. And V goes back about ten years, when I met these two girls who were aunt and niece. They've always stuck with me. Imagine how wild it would be to have an aunt and a niece the same age! What if they were total opposites? I knew that V was exactly what Mara needed to shake up the status quo."About the Author:
