This is another great book from Teresa Mummert. I always love her books because they are always so dark and twisty. They never disappoint and I love her mind and her stories. This one is just as great. 
 
Its a story of a girl who is an feels like an outsider.  Her parents have her on medication that makes her feel weirder than she already feels. She is sheltered and her only friend is going to be homeschooled in high school. She wants to step out of her comfort zone and sees the neighbor’s nephew and has a crush on him. She is trying to get the courage to talk to him in hopes to make a new friend before school starts. One night, one adventure could be the death of Lila Jane, but will it be?
 
This story is a coming of age story of teenage girl that has some twists and turns. Its a quick read but well worth it. I loved the characters and feel for the characters and their situation. Its another great story from Teresa Mummert.
