Overview
Lea Lane has lived in between all her life.
Part Hawaiian, part Mainlander. Perpetual new girl at school. Hanging in the shadow of her actress mother s spotlight. And now: new resident of the prominent West family s guest cottage.
Bracing herself for the embarrassment of being her classmates latest charity case, Lea is surprised when she starts becoming friends with Will and Whitney West instead or in the case of gorgeous, unattainable Will, possibly even more than friends. And despite their differences, Whitney and Lea have a lot in common: both are navigating a tangled web of relationships, past disappointments and future hopes. As things heat up with Will, and her friendship with Whitney deepens, Lea has to decide how much she's willing to change in order to fit into their world.
Lea Lane has lived in between all her life. But it isn t until her junior year that she learns how to do it on her own terms."

Lea Lane, daughter of a single mother and B-list actress, is a self-conscious and mostly unnoticed junior at the prestigious Punahou Prep School in Hawaii. When the Wests, a wealthy family with longtime ties to Lea’s mother, offer the use of their gorgeous guest house rent-free, Lea balks, especially since the West children, Whitney and Will, also attend Punahou. Though daunted by their affluence and social power, Lea grows attracted to Will and befriends Whitney, who reveals a side Lea has never seen at school. Lea’s confidence increases, but so do her concerns about these new relationships—and how much of herself she should abandon to pursue them. Set against a lush Hawaiian backdrop, Hemmings’s (The Descendants) first YA novel holds few surprises. The Wests are a stereotypical pretentious family, while Lea’s “I’m not good enough” mantra gets to be repetitive. By book’s end, Lea has gained some perspective and a better sense of who she is, but some readers may wish she had gotten there sooner. Ages 14–up. Agent: David Forrer and Kim Witherspoon, Inkwell Management. (Sept.)
