Written as a sequel to "Just As Long As We're Together," Blume continues her account of the seventh-grade year of Stephanie, Rachel and Allison. Told from Rachel's point of view, the reader is privy to the innermost thoughts and feelings of a teenager who was "born thirty-five). An excellent scholar, Rachel excels in all things educations, including debate and music (she practices her flute for 45-minutes per day). Rachel, like her over-achieving mother, thinks that she can handle anything with simple, logical explanation. However, when her uncontrollable brother, Charles, returns from last-resort boarding school, the fabric of her life is shaken. Rachel confronts her problems head-on and discovers more about herself, her abilities, her family and her friends than ever before.
