Roat, Sharon Huss.
||When Ivy Emerson finds out that her
family has to move from her affluent neighborhood and
leave everything they have behind including her beloved
piano, her life is turned upside down. Not only is her new
home in the poorest neighborhood, but her new next door
neighbor is the school’s “bad boy”! Her family has to
sacrifice everything for her autistic brother and the
expensive therapy services he needs. Ivy loves her
brother, but she believes she has to keep her family’s new
economic status a secret from her friends fearing their
rejection. What makes it all worse is that she has met a
really cute guy who thinks she is rich like the rest of
her friends at school, and the new next door neighbor guy
is threatening to tell everybody her secret! Going back to
her music and finding trust in herself and others helps
Ivy find her way. Read to see how. (Prepared by: Donna
