About this book

Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.

Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.

Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.

So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and-worst of all-confronting some ugly secrets.

Reviews

“Bo and Agnes' unlikely friendship rings true and strong.” ––Kirkus



Praise for The DUFF


"[A] well-written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut." ––Publishers Weekly

"What's best here is Bianca's brazen voice. Even when confused, she is truer to herself than most." ––Booklist



Praise for Lying Out Loud


"Keplinger creates vivid, believable characters that are full of spunk and joie de vivre . . . Fierce, fresh, total fun." ––Kirkus



"Sonny is a realistic and very human character, and even though she is a liar, her motivations are all too believable." ––School Library Journal
