Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a new boyfriend, her own room (finally!), and a modeling agency trying to convince her to sign with them, Charmaine Upshaw’s life is just about perfect. But a surprising face appears at the dinner table: ex-con Uncle E. Uncle E skipped town a few months ago after Charmaine’s parents put up $1000 bail, leaving them in a bind that forced her mom to go back to work. Mom and Dad seem happy to see Uncle E, and her little live-in cousin Tracy John thinks he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. But Charmaine is not fooled. Meanwhile, Charmaine struggles in her first romance and ponders the idea of taking Hollywood by storm. Does she have what it takes to see her name in lights? Only if she can survive the 10th grade. . . .

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

When her ex-convict Uncle E. returns after skipping out on a loan and leaving the family with a real financial hardship, Charmaine is not happy he's come back, despite the forgiving nature of the rest of her kin and especially since things have been going so good without him around.
