What's new in LaVaughn's life is Jody--a boy she knew as a child who's come back to the housing project where she lives. Jody is like a miracle: He smells like chlorine, he calls her "little buddy," he goes with her to the dance. It's just as if he's in love with her. Except not quite. As LaVaughn puzzles over Jody, as her best friends struggle with belief and acceptance, and as Jody wrestles with questions about his own identity, Virginia Euwer Wolff rises to the occasion with this astonishing and powerfully moving novel, the second in the Make Lemonade trilogy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The language of this occasionally gritty story resonates with truth, personal growth, and the vision of a better life. While there are some mature themes, they are handled very gently. Every teenager should have the opportunity to meet LaVaughn.” School Library Journal
“This is a coming-of-age story with both bite and heart, which poses more questions than it answers but never runs out of hope.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Eight years after the publication of her groundbreaking Make Lemonade, Wolff surpasses herself with this sequel… In delving into LaVaughn’s life, the author unmasks the secret thoughts adolescents hold sacred and lets her readers know they are not alone.” Publishers Weekly
