Debbie | 6 comments I, unfortunately, cannot remember much of the plot. I checked this book out of the library when I was in high school (98-02), and it has always remained in my brain. I remember that the book had a vibrantly colored tie dye cover, in yellows and oranges and maybe pinks. Heroine was a teenager herself, a coming of age novel. Please help!

SamSpayedPI | 2075 comments Can you remember anything about the book other than the cover (since covers often change with editions of the book) -- any detail that would distinguish it from the tens of thousands of other COA novels about teen females that were released in the same timeframe?

Drugs? First period? Weight loss? First boyfriend? Mental illness? New in town? Cancer? Scoliosis? Divorcing parents? Pregnancy? Problem siblings? Starting a restaurant?

The original cover was more psychedelic.

Maybe: Long Time Passing by Linda Crew?

Michele | 10 comments A signed, 1st edition is available on Thriftbooks (it had no tie-dye), as well as 2 others (1 with tie-dye). I don't work for them; it's a great place to search for old books.
