About this item

Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks. Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else. So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and-worst of all-confronting some ugly secrets.



About the Author

Kody Keplinger

Kentucky-born Kody Keplinger's earliest memory is sitting at an old typewriter, pressing random keys as she told her mother the story she thought she was writing. Once she actually learned to spell, the writing never stopped. She wrote her first published novel, THE DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) at the age of 17, during her senior year of high school. Since then she has written two more books for teens (SHUT OUT, A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHTMARE) and one book for middle grade readers (THE SWIFT BOYS & ME) . She currently lives in New York City with her dog and a giant children's book collection. When she isn't writing, Kody is probably teaching a writing workshop or watching TV.
