And Then Things Fall Apart

Keek’s life was totally perfect.This looks like it will be a great summer book. It's always fun when characters are removed from their accustomed surroundings. And I love that her comforts are a book and a typewriter! The cover on this one is kinda cute and different, as well. I like the sort of whimsy of it.
Keek and her boyfriend just had their Worst Fight Ever, her best friend heinously betrayed her, her parents are divorcing, and her mom’s across the country caring for her newborn cousin, who may or may not make it home from the hospital. To top it all off, Keek’s got the plague. (Well, the chicken pox.) Now she’s holed up at her grandmother’s technologically-barren house until further notice. Not quite the summer vacation Keek had in mind.
With only an old typewriter and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar for solace and guidance, Keek’s alone with her swirling thoughts. But one thing’s clear through her feverish haze—she’s got to figure out why things went wrong so she can put them right.
