told you so

Every tween goes through a time when they feel 'alien'... when the world seems a different planet. Their bodies change, their moods change, their attitudes change, life seems completely different.

Joylin is a tomboy who loves playing basketball with the boys. But suddenly at 12 years old... things are changing.

The story is written as narrative prose, short poems that perfectly capture the crazy, sometimes conflicting feelings of being a tween girl.  At its close, readers will remember the timeless truth at the center of Joylin's story: be yourself. As Joylin says, "I wouldn't trade places with anyone."
