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.

Very witty, funny and sassy! Heartwarming! Like eating comfort food! 55
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
Great book full of humor. 45
Felt like there was many grammatical and spelling errors.... but all in all it was a great book. 45
This book was a good escape and the author writes in an intriguing funny way.I fell in love!! So mind refreshing ❤️ 55
I don’t normally review anything, just read and keep going. But being new to “ebooks”, I hadn’t come across anything as well written as a “paper” book. This book blew me away. It wasn’t that the plot was amazing, although it was great and kept me hooked and spoke to me on a spiritual level as someone who struggles with knowing Christ. This story was so well written, so funny, so endearing that I found myself saying over and over, “This woman is a genius!”. The character Katie was so real and so comically teen, and a refreshing young adult character. You know she’s gone through a lot but she’s resilient and witty and learns so much in this story. I never buy ebooks, but will be buying all the ones in this series. Jenny Jones is a truly talented author and has become one of my all time favorites. 55
I loved this book! 55

I really, really like this book. There are so many lessons learned from reading this book. One of them being, forgiveness. This is a great book for people of all ages. I love the Christian theme so much. This book has made me laugh and touched my heart. Thank you for this free book! 55
The story was amazing and had my attention 100% Sadly I found a lot of errors in the book, the author at times forgot which character was in the scene and often used the wrong characters name. Other than that I would give this book 5 stars. I finished this book in just a handful of days and it was so hard to put it down! This one is a keeper and I will be re-reading it over and over! 55
Wonderful! Loved it very much. Beautifully written, loved the humor😊 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

Very well written! Good humor, realistic, and poignant. I enjoyed reading this book. 55
I was reading three books at once trying to get into one of them. Out of boredom I went through the selection of "free" books and came upon this one. I was hooked on page one. Easy, fun read. I will be looking for more from this writer. Thanks for the great book! 55
Perfect blend of serious (little) and humor (lots)....actually laughed out loud in parts...I loved it. 55
