Publisher Comments:

Each discovery disturbs the arrangements of the known world, and it is our job to stay alert to all possibilities.

LaVaughn believes she is keeping alert to all possibilities. She has made it through the projects, she's gotten over heartbreak, she's grown up, and now she's been admitted to the Women in Science program that might finally be her ticket to COLLEGE. But the discoveries she makes during her senior year in high school--two girls pregnant, with very few options--disturb everything in her known world. And in an effort to bring together people who should love each other, she jeopardizes the one prize she has sought her whole life long.

When do you know whether you're doing the right thing? What happens when you can't find a way to make lemonade out of lemons? Virginia Euwer Wolff takes on the biggest questions--about life and love, certainly, but also about girls and women, sacrifice and compassion--and has something quite rev-elatory to say about them in this full house.

Synopsis:

For three years, LaVaughn has struggled to get herself out of the projects and into nursing school. Now she's one step away from her goal of COLLEGE: She's taking a course over the summer to prepare herself for a science degree. To her great shock, she finds out that the beloved female doctor who teaches the class once gave away her own baby. And at the same time, she discovers that her oldest friend, Annie, is pregnant, very much by accident.

LaVaughn has to draw on all she has learned so far—about family, about compassion, about second chances, even about DNA—to reconcile her perception of the world with the world as it is.
