Genre: Young Adult
When giving back to others isn’t enough, can one teen discover what’s truly important in life?
Lola Renaldi leans heavily into service for the struggling. Padded by privilege, the high school senior defies her mom’s push to study law and marry well in favor of chasing her volunteering obsession. And during her favorite gig building affordable homes, she’s happy to befriend a mysterious boy… until he scorns her supposedly naïve, privileged mindset.
As doubt chips away at her confidence, the big-hearted girl worries her perfect plans for the future are quickly unraveling. And with new boyfriend troubles, a bestie spiraling into a meltdown, and an unexpected loss, she fears she’s not the person she always wanted to be.
Can Lola uncover the missing piece she needs to feel completely whole?

About the Author:
I hate to handle raw meat, I’m a wife and mother of four, a compulsive walker, and a Mozart fangirl. But since you stopped by, what I really want you to know is that I love that you read. Readers are smart, quick-witted, and usually good conversationalists—even if it’s only in their head. Introverts unite!
I write middle grade fiction because those are the most formative years of our lives. It’s when we are trying to claim our freedom, while still being restricted by rules. The things we learn in books can give us the skills to navigate that maze. I write young adult fiction because there are no limits to what message I share or how I share it. Plus young adult readers are some of the most passionate readers out there. I heart YA readers.
If you’d like an image of me as a writer, go ahead and picture me with my laptop in a quaint bookshop café, fingers flying over the keys while the words pour out of my fingertips. It’s much better than the real image of me in my pajamas with coffee breath, sinking into the me-sized crater in the couch, grumbling at my laptop when the words don’t come. Happy reading!
