Vanessa | 18 comments Read a book where this girl lived with her mom at first and her mom was a celebrity/model. I remember this one scene where her mom put two tickets into a draw for a free shopping spree and she won. The cover had some green on it and there was a photo of a girl in black and white.

When did you read it, or when was it published (about)? How old is the girl? Where and when is it set?

A long shot given the cover - The Daughters by Joanna Philbin?

Vanessa, how would you describe the relationship between the mother and daughter?

What's the tone - funny, sarcastic, angsty, sombre, etc.? Any romance?

What about other characters - the girl's friends, her father, etc.?

- The cover included a photo of a young girl in black and white, showing mostly her face (it wasn't a full body photo).
- The girl was disliked her mother and was disappointed in her for cheating in the shopping spree draw.
- The tone was kind of sombre. It was similar to the tone of To Kill a Mockingbird.
- There was no romance.
- I remember the girl leaving her mother and going to live with her father, and her father was very supportive.
- I don't remember any descriptions of her friends (perhaps she had none).
