Keeping the Moon
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
Colie has spent her entire life hiding - hiding behind her weight, dyed hair, and a lip ring. She has been teased mercilessly and has never really had any friends of her own. Now, as her famous mother is off on a European tour, Colie is sent to stay with her eccentric aunt for a summer. Throughout the summer Colie finds her truth self, accepts herself for who she is, and finally experiences what it is like to have friends to rely on.
