This Girl Is Different

What happens when a girl, homeschooled by her counterculture mother, decides to spend her senior year in public school? First friendship, first loveand first encounters with the complexities of authority and responsibility. Evie is different. Not just her upbringingthough that's certainly been unusualbut also her mindset. She's smart, independent, confident, opinionated, and ready to take on a new challenge: the Institution of School. It doesn't take this homeschooled kid long to discover that high school is a whole new world, and not in the ways she expected. It's also a social minefield, and Evie finds herself confronting new problems at every turn, failing to follow or even understand the rules, and proposing solutions that aren't welcome or accepted. Not one to sit idly by, Evie sets out to make changes. Big changes. The movement she starts takes off, but before she realizes what's happening, her plan spirals out of control, forcing her to come to terms with a world she is only just beginning to comprehend. J. J. Johnson's powerful debut novel will enthrall readers as it challenges assumptions about friendship, rules, boundaries, and power.
