Will she risk the fall and take a leap of faith?

Vivi Lewis just wants to stay in one place for more than a minute. It’s April of her senior year, for crying out loud, and here she is again, packed into a beat-up white Toyota with her anxiety-ridden single mom, fleeing the Washington coast. She hopes that this move—the one that’s taken them inland to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho—wi

    Vivi has to finish her senior year at a new school. It's already April when her mother decides they need to move again. Vivi has to start over once more and doesn't have high expectations of her final weeks in high school. Vivi's mother's anxiety is the cause of the frequent moving around the country and they're taking it with them wherever they go. Their new hometown is Coeur d’Alene in Idaho. Will Vivi be able to finish her last weeks at school in peace?

    When Vivi meets Win she knows she's foun

    Face the Worst Case

    Anxiety is weird. When we feel anxious, we try to avoid the thing that's jacking up our sympathetic nervous system. Too bad avoidance often increases anxiety. The best strategy for reducing anxiety is to approach it head-on--ask a honey out on a date, deliver public speeches, drive to a friend's over snowy roads--but who has the gumption to do that?

    Vivi Lewis just might be the one.

    Vivi is a 17 year old whose mother's nervous system is on overdrive. Convinced the world is dange

    Beck Anderson is a fantastic writer and this realistic and heartwarming YA romance is a great entry in the genre! Loved the Idaho setting. Give this author a try, you won’t regret it.

    "I’d love to tell you I didn’t care what other people thought of us, but that would be a lie. I’d also love to tell you I don’t care now that I’m older, but that’s not particularly true either. "

    I very much enjoyed this story about family and young romance. The writing is clear and blunt and very real. There is a

    I’ll begin my review by saying that I hail from the same corner of the world as Beck Anderson, and we’ve both apparently visited many of the same incredible places. Any time I read one of Beck’s books, I have a giddy reaction to locations I know well.

    Worst Case is no exception, and I delighted in the familiar setting of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. If you haven’t been to this beautiful resort town, you’ll just have to take my word for it. Beck describes it all elegantly – the geography, the atmosphere,

    Some stories make the make my world a better place…this is one of them.
    Moving to somewhere new, is nothing new to Vivi, neither is living with the crippling anxiety that her mother deals with on a daily basis because while it is her mother that calls the shots, it is Vivi the deals with the consequences…like having to finish her education at yet another new High School, this time in the delightfully named Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
    I felt an empathy for Vivi that drew her to me, instinct telling me tha
