What would you do if you were caught in the middle? 14 year-old Deanne T. Summers knows that starting life as a high school freshman isn't going to be easy. Deanne didn't count on having her loyalty tested to her childhood friends, the Southgate Avenue crew, when she befriends a clique of the wealthiest students at Stonywood High School. What does loyalty and friendship have to do with being called a "wannabe" or worse? The inner strength Deanne's always had just may crumble as she strives to manage friendships of two opposing cliques and overcome the pains of betrayal.
