SHE WAS TOO GROWN-UP FOR CHILDISH GAMES.
BUT TOO YOUNG TO BECOME A WOMAN. . . .

Living with her parents and brother, Ian, in her Grandmother Emma's enormous mansion, Jordan March tries to be a good girl and follow her grandmother's strict rules. It's easy for Jordan to hide in the shadows -- between Ian's brilliant, all-consuming talents for science and the ever-more-frequent arguments among the grown-ups. But one day, without warning, Jordan's body begins to change -- and everyone notices her in a way that seems dark, dangerous, and threatening. Suddenly the March family secrets are unleashed, and Jordan is ashamed and afraid that her soft curves are unwelcome indeed. Shipped off to a lakeside hideaway, Jordan and Ian befriend a girl whose shocking revelations make for a summer of scandal and explosive emotion. Outraged, Grandmother Emma sets out to make Jordan pay for her family's past mistakes, sending her world spinning wildly out of control. . . .

A book that allows yourself to be part of the March family and experience first hand tragedy behind a family that appears as 'perfect' to society! A thrilling book that also pertains to the discovery of growing up and family issues.

The March family is a poised, rich set of individuals that looks like they belong on the cover of a magazine. However, hidden underneath the spectacular walls of their mansion, lies deep family secrets that are uncovered through unfortunate events, with one being Jordan developing way before the proper age. As her brother Ian sets out to discover the symptoms and reason behind his sister’s young age of reaching puberty, no one realizes the swirling secrets that are rising up to surface once again in the March household. Grandmother Emma goes as far as hiring Miss Harper to take over Jordan and Ian’s lives after their parents are heavily injured in a car crash. As the March residents slowly figures out their own ways to deal with the past and the present, it may be too late to mend the broken family ties.
