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 Roberts, Rock Hill High School, , South Carolina Young Adult Book Award, 2018)
