In Between

Originally published in 2007.

Can we overcome our past?
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head...and heart. When Katie and her new "wrong crowd" get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

I , despite my age,85, I found the book enchanting. I liked the fast paced plot and modern dialogue. We often forget the importance of the teenage years. The development of talents, confidence and ethics during this time is so Important to getting a good start in life. The inclusion of the Christian Faith was nicely woven in the story. 55

This delightful, first in series, book deserves every star. The wise-cracking teen protagonist will steal your heart, and the transformation from delinquent to healing soul will touch your heart. 55

Katie Parker's adventures!4 star

It is a coming of age story, which shows the character growth of the protagonist. What I love are the wonderful foster parents, whom I hope to mimic, the crazy grandmother Maxine, who is a hard to forget specimen and the perfect friend material Frances Vega. Sprinkle a few other characters from the church and that is the perfect recipe for a beautiful story. I am eager to read more. Wait up Katie Parker, here I come! 😉 45

I believe...and giggle at the same time5 star

This is the second time I've read "in Between". I don't read books more than once. Ever. When I downloaded some light reading for my phone and realized a few pages in that I had already read this book. I was captivated (a second time!) with the way the author says everything. So entertaining. Even tho I feel like I never laugh out loud, I caught myself doing it over and over. Such a "feel good", fun book. And, they lived happily ever after. Thanks! 55


Funny and Poignant5 star

I love that funny doesn't have to be dirty or explicit. I was laughing through the whole book. What a unique perspective being written like a teenager thinking out loud. I loved it. 55


Great book!5 star

I really thoroughly enjoyed this book. I guess I needed a little faith in my life as well. Well this book is not just about your usual shenanigans, but really speaks out and tell what is a true loving story with many lessons and mental notes to be taken away. Thank you! 55

This book was exceptional and while some might say I stumbled into it by sheer coincidence; I know the Lord meant for me to read it and learn from it. Simply, yet, stunningly spectacular. Thank you Jenny B. Jones. 55
