Wendy Robichaud is on schedule to have everything she wants in high school: two loyal best friends, a complete and happy family, and a hunky boyfriend she's had a crush on since eighth grade--until she and Mrs. Villaturo look at old photo albums together. That's when Mrs. V sees her dead husband and hints at a 1960s scandal down in Cajun country. Faster than you can say "crawdad," Wendy digs into the scandal and into trouble

She risks losing boyfriend David by befriending Mrs. V's cute hearing-impaired grandson, alienates stepsister Alice by having a boyfriend in the first place, and upsets her friend Gayle without knowing why.

Will Wendy be able to prevent Mrs. V from being taken thousands of miles away? And will she lose all the friends she's fought so hard to gain?

Editorial review:

"Using Wendy as her narrator,(8 Notes to a Nobody, 2015, etc.) delineates some of the highs and lows of an innocent first love in this fast-pacedåÊnovel. The story goes beyond its catchy title to tackle serious issues relevant to teens ...sensitive YA tale about love, change, and loss, with an empowering message for girls. Kirkus Reviews
