Description

Originally published in 2007.

Can we overcome our past?
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head...and heart. When Katie and her new "wrong crowd" get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

    This book is so well done! Katie Parker is hilarious! Maxine is my new hero and I love that the young girls and their elder women are strong enough to be vulnerable!!! An excellent read I cannot wait to pass along to a host of friends!!

    What a “breath of fresh air” so to speak is this book. Thanks for a spell-binding and Godly ending. Praise the Lord there are writers who have so much talent!

    This is the second time I've read "in Between". I don't read books more than once. Ever. When I downloaded some light reading for my phone and realized a few pages in that I had already read this book. I was captivated (a second time!) with the way the author says everything. So entertaining. Even tho I feel like I never laugh out loud, I caught myself doing it over and over. Such a "feel good", fun book. And, they lived happily ever after. Thanks!
  • Funny and Poignant

    I love that funny doesn't have to be dirty or explicit. I was laughing through the whole book. What a unique perspective being written like a teenager thinking out loud. I loved it.
  • Great book!

    I really thoroughly enjoyed this book. I guess I needed a little faith in my life as well. Well this book is not just about your usual shenanigans, but really speaks out and tell what is a true loving story with many lessons and mental notes to be taken away. Thank you!
