After Georgia reads an ad wanting teens to volunteer two weeks of their summer for a building project in Mexico, she talks her parents into allowing her to sign up. She also recruits her best friend Riley. As they get ready for their summer adventure Georgia notices Riley never eats and when she does it is usually just very small amounts. By the time they get to Mexico she realizes Riley has an eating disorder and when she confronts her friend their friendship is suddenly on the rocks. Meanwhile Georgia and her group are helping a small community build a community bath and shower house. It is hot, difficult and dirty work but Georgia is loving it. She is concerned about Riley being able to keep up with the work and she wonders if she can ever rebuild her relationship again. Beth Kephart is an artist painting pictures with her prose. She writes beautifully and any reader will find themselves engrossed in this story based on a real experience.
