Pub. Date:
In her sixteen years of life, Starbird has never touched a dollar bill. She's never been in a car. She's never used a cell phone. That's because Starbird has always lived on the Free Family Farm, a commune in the woods of Washington State. But all that is about to change. When Starbird gets her Calling to be a waitress at the Free Family's restaurant in Seattle, she decides to leave behind the only home she's ever known. Nothing could have prepared Starbird for the World Outside, or for what it would teach her about the Family - and herself. From the author of The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door comes this hilarious and poignant story about finding your true calling in life. Praise for The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door 'Hilarious, exciting, and as painful as anybody's teenage years. Read it, please.' Sherman Alexie, winner of the National Book Award, Young People's Literature, for The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian 'Celia Door is a heroine to laugh with, cry with, and cheer for.' Gayle Forman, bestselling author of If I Stay 'Celia is a quirky and unique character whose ourney - through friendship and secrets and chocolate - will stay with readers long after they close the book.' Ruta Sepetys, bestselling author of Between Shades of Gray
