About The Book

My name is Angelina Rossini. A little about me:

  • I am sixteen years old.

  • I live in Blodgett, Vermont. Population: 854.

  • Most of my life's been pretty normal for a twenty-first-century American teen.

  • I'm in love with my best friend who, um, recently came out.

  • I sometimes get the sense that my mother wishes I hadn't been born.

  • I maintain a low level of hostility with at least one of my classmates.

I could deal, though. Mainly because my dad was around, and he was my sun. Our sun, really: my mom's, my stepsister's, and mine. My dad kept us all in place, orbiting around him.

But then the sun, went out. Click.

That was the end of Life As I Knew It -- and the beginning of something a lot different.
