What Happened to Goodbye
While her mother, aerobics queen Kiki Sparks, spends the summer touring Europe, fifteen-year-old Colie Sparks is stuck in sleepy Colby, North Carolina. But she's not complaining. For one thing, her Aunt Mira is a sweet, laid-back eccentric; for another, no one knows that back home in Charlotte Colie is seen as a formerly-fat "golf-course slut," the school scapegoat. Then, by fate or by accident, Colie lands a waitressing job, where she meets Morgan and Isabel. The two wisecracking--and wise--20something waitresses help her turn her life around, and realize the potential that has been there all along. Sarah Dessen's newest novel is poignant, humorous, and full of characters to cherish--what readers are coming to expect from this extraordinary young talent.
"Sit down", Isabel said, kicking aside one white sandal and a pair of shorts to pull out the chair. The dressing table itself was a sea of little bottles and containers, so covered with cosmetics that you couldn't even see the surface. I looked at myself in the mirror and wondered what I was doing there.<P>Isabel pushed some more stuff aside and leaned against the dressing table. "Look, Colie. I have something to say to you, and I'm just gonna shoot it straight. Okay?"<P" considered this. It couldn't be any worse than what had already happened. "Okay".<P>She tucked her hair behind her ear, took a deep breath and let it out. Then she said, "I really think you should pluck your eyebrows".<P>This hadn't been exactly what I was expecting.
