Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Mia is officially a Troubled Teen™--she gets bad grades, drinks too much, and has probably gone too far with too many guys. But she doesn't realize how out of control she seems until she is taken from her home in the middle of the night and sent away to Red Oak Academy, a therapeutic girls' boarding school in the middle of nowhere. While there, Mia is forced to confront her painful past at the same time she questions why she's at Red Oak. If she were a boy, would her behavior be considered wild enough to get sent away? But what happens when circumstances outside of her control compel Mia to make herself vulnerable enough to be truly seen?

    Mia drinks, does drugs, and sleeps around, but it's not until she punches her stepmother that she gets shipped off to Red Oak Academy, a therapeutic boarding school. Though its glossy brochures promise holistic, individualized treatments instead of a locked-down militarized approach, Mia, simmering with rage, still feels trapped. But Red Oak isn't just the facility itself, it's the girls who populate it, and as Mia gets closer to them—bright, desperate Poppy; sardonic, attention-seeking Trinity; and longterm resident Vera, with wounds as deep as Mia's own—she begins to reluctantly examine the closely held beliefs that led to her worst choices. Printz Honoree Foley (The Carnival at Bray, 2014) slips in greater musings on growing up female in a damaging society even as she clings closely to Mia's sometimes caustic, sometimes tender personal narrative, tracking her turbulent inner journey and slowly revealing that often what scars us the most is what we are the least willing to see. For teens—especially girls—still finding that place between vulnerable and armored, this will be a balm. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
